Bread for This!

Tell us a little bit about yourself and your journey to COBS

What did you do before working at COBS?

I was working at the local non-profit community center as a Manager. Moved from India for my further study to Fort St. John community college and fall in love with this North Peace Region of BC.

When did you join the COBS Bread family? Why did you decide to open a COBS Bread bakery?

I join the COBS Bread Family the day I tried the Apricot Delight Log, and just fall in love with COBS from the first day.

I love the concept of bake fresh from scratch every day. My wife and I are used to drive to Grand Prairie, AB for COBS products and thought why not we bring this delightful freshness to our Community in Fort St. John.

What are you looking forward to about your new bakery?

I am looking forward to server our community freshly baked bread and treats with amazing service. Baked fresh with my team and serve the community the best COBS products and looking forward to seeing happy customer that enjoying our bread/treat that we baked.

Very looking forward to the Favorite Local Bakery of Fort St. John!

What charity did you pick and why for your community day?

We chose the FSJ Hospital Foundation, being a community owned, non-profit foundation, we wanted to contribute a part towards the future of the medical needs of this Energetic Northern Community we live and work in.

Before joining COBS, were you much of a baker?

Not at all, hardly knew anything about the baking. However, spending some baking time with very experience Bakers of COBS make me knowledgeable baker. Still long way to go.

How are you planning on getting involved in the community?

Being a part of the community would be the best way to show my support to community of Fort St. John. Been living in FSJ for more than 8 years now and working at local cultural center for 5 years I got personal connection as much as professional in Fort St. John, that is the reason I called Fort St. John my Home, and looking forward to continue being involved by donating our left-over bread each night to local groups that are in needs.

Also, being here for the community where everyone can count on us for their fresh Bread and treats anytime!

Loaf Out Loud!

Answer one or two of these silly questions below

If you were a treat or loaf from COBS, which one would you be and why? (Think personality characteristics, not just your favourite)

I am like a Sourdough, hard from outside but soft from inside.

What is in your favourite sandwich?

I love Egg salad sandwich on COBS Country grain Bread.

What is your favourite baking pun or joke?

We have molder, to make our bread moldy!
