Brumby's Bakeries (commonly shortened to just Brumby's) is a chain of Australian retail bakeries. It was established in 1975 by Roger Gillespie[4] (co-founder of Bakers Delight) with the opening of its first bakery, The Old Style Bread Centre, in Ashburton, Victoria.

Company information[edit]

In 2003, the chain was listed on the Bendigo Stock Exchange.[3]

On 18 December 2006, Brumby's announced Retail Food Group (ASXRFG) had proposed a merger.[2]

As of 2007, Brumby's Bakeries has over 320 franchises throughout Australia and New Zealand, up from 280 in 2003.[3]

In 2012 Brumby's Bakeries Managing Director wrote an internal memo that suggested franchisees increase their prices and "let the carbon tax take the blame".[5]

The bakery chain is part of the publicly listed Retail Food Group, which also owns Gloria Jeans Coffee Donut King and Michel's Patisserie.
