The Belfast Baking Company has unveiled plans to invest £350,000 and create 15 jobs at a new bakery and deli in Titanic Quarter.  The East Belfast-based company, which already operates a bakery in Belfast, specialises in combining traditional baking with 21st century cooking and design. 

Situated in the ARC, overlooking Belfast Harbour Marina and close to the SSE Arena, the new 50-seater restaurant will offer customers restaurant dining and deli lunches, as well as fresh local breads and bespoke cakes to order. 

The Belfast Baking Company expects to open its Titanic Quarter venue in mid-November.  Owned by Paul and Sharon McDonald, the team will also include award-winning chef and food consultant, Neil Graham, and Daryl Shields, winner of the ‘JANUS Restauranteur of the Year’ award. Placements for catering students from the nearby Belfast Metropolitan College will also be available with three students already joining the team. 

Sharon McDonald said:

“We are thrilled to be bringing Belfast’s newest baking revolution to Titanic Quarter, which is perfectly located for business, residents, students and the many tourists to the area.  Our business is focused on providing baking excellence using locally sourced foods, crafted by expert staff.  Our bakers and cake makers have over 50-years’ experience in traditional Irish bread making and handmade cakes, which we will serve fresh daily - with a twist. 

“As well as baking mouth-watering breads, we have devised a sumptuous lunch deli menu celebrating our local foods and flavouring which we know customers will love.  To this we have a fantastic evening menu.

“The deli is designed to let customers see the bakery operating during opening hours, creating a lovely buzz and allowing visitors to see the art of traditional bread and cake making, whilst enjoying locally sourced Irish food in gorgeous surroundings from breakfast through to lunch and dinner,” Sharon added.

Located within Titanic Quarter’s ARC Residential and Retail Complex, the new 3,600 sq. ft. deli and bakery is close to Titanic Belfast, Belfast Metropolitan College and SS Nomadic.  

Welcoming the announcement, Fiona Rice, Titanic Quarter’s Commercial Manager, said:

“We are delighted to welcome The Belfast Baking Company as our latest tenant in Titanic Quarter.  Over 18,000 people already live, work and study in Titanic Quarter which is also a major destination for tourists, visitors and a venue for outdoor events.

“The past 12-months have witnessed a marked increase in interest from other potential tenants at the ARC and the arrival of The Belfast Baking Company will be a great addition to the growing community already established here in Titanic Quarter.”

The Belfast Baking Company will open by mid-November 2015, for details visit www.belfastbaking.com
