Hugh Saunders had started off working at his family's butcher shop in Lougher for many years but was interested in baking so he decided to learn the trade. He worked at bakeries in Aberystwyth where he met his wife May, and afterwards in the Wembley area of London. May did not like the idea of living in London so they moved back to Landore where the idea to open their own bakery started.
Saunders Bakery, Landore, Swansea was opened in 1932 by Alfred Hitchins who owned the property and Hugh Saunders who was the main baker and son in law of Alfred. His wife May Saunders also worked there with them. Initially it was called Clifton bakery after the name of the street at the time which was Clifton Road. The street name has now changed to Pentre Treharne Road. After that it was named H. Saunders & Son and finally as we know it today - Saunders Bakery.
Today we opened our doors for the first time in 8 months it's great to see a lot of familiar faces from before as well as quite a few new people. If you've got any suggestions or comments we would love to hear about them on our Saunders Bakery facebook page
Saunders Bakery is being run by new management - Adam Nantel and Joel Nantel. Our great grandfather started the bakery back in 1932 and we are the fifth generation to work there. We are proud to be taking over the family business and hope it continues to grow in success. We are undertaking a shop refit and general makeover of the bakery and are proud to announce we will be reopening on Monday the 9th of July, 2012.
