Gail's Bakery sets sights on travel hubs

Gail’s Bakery has set its sights on opening in multiple travel hub locations with the first opening at Liverpool Street station this summer

Gail's is set to open its first station-based venue this summer.

The opening of the 950 square-foot outlet at Liverpool Street is apparently just one of several travel hub destinations that the brand will open this year, as additional sites are still being finalised. 

The move to transport hubs will see Gail’s extend its high-volume, high-speed model to offer on-the-go customers craft baking and specialty coffee, without sacrificing speed.

In its fastest bakeries, more than 95% of the brand’s drinks are served in under two minutes, with the majority of its freshly baked menu available to grab and go throughout the day. 

Marta Pogroszewska, Gail's managing director, said: “We are delighted to be opening one of our neighbourhood bakeries in Liverpool Street station. We look forward to bringing craft baking and speciality coffee to the community.” 

On 8th June, Gail's will open its first in-store bakery counter with Waitrose, in London’s Canary Wharf. 

Waitrose first partnered with Gail’s in November 2022 to launch three bakery concessions as part of a limited trial. After strong sales, the concessions were rolled out to 64 Waitrose stores in April 2023, leading to sales of Gail’s baked goods in Waitrose rising 35% annually. 

Gail’s intends to open in London’s Paddington Square and Woolwich in the next couple of weeks, with further openings lined up in Chester and Petersfield, Hampshire.
