the Fingal’s Bakery Opportunity

Learn more about Fingal’s and why it’s worth investing

Pursuing a dream is never easy! We have found a wonderful space on the high street in Maze Hill but we need help to get it ready so we can spread the aroma of freshly baked bread across south London each day. The new space will house a fully equipped bakery – stone floored deck oven, mixers, refrigeration – where we will be able to bake hundreds of loaves daily and lots more besides, to be sold in our beautifully designed on-site bakery shop and cafe where we’ll also be serving superb coffee and leaf teas.

Bread may appear to be a ubiquitous product but good bread isn’t. Our bread will be made on-site with unique tasting starters – wheat, rye, gluten-free – that will naturally last longer than store-bought varieties and will help bring further life, business and employment to London’s already bustling Maze Hill. We need your help to do that.
