Meet Tanya Doyle, your New Local Bakery Owner in Bowmanville, Ontario. 

We are happy to introduce Tanya Doyle, the proud owner of our newest bakery in Bowmanville, Ontario. 

What did you do before becoming a COBS Bread bakery owner?  

I worked in education for 21 years, most recently as an elementary school principal.  

What is your favorite thing about being part of the COBS Bread network?  

The guidance and support I have received from the franchisee and staff at the bakery that I trained in and the support from my area manager and the head office. Working with our team has been an amazing and positive experience. I know that being a part of the COBS Bread network means that I have a support system that will help me as I begin this journey and support me as I grow my business.  

What are you looking forward to the most about your new bakery?  

I am looking forward to being back in a community that I love and establishing positive connections with our customers and community members.  Partnering with local charities is something that I am also looking forward to! 

What is your recipe for success?  

Having a strong presence in the bakery to establish connections with staff and customers while maintaining a work-life balance. It is also always important to maintain a growth mindset.  

How are you planning on getting involved in the community?  

I plan on continuing to work with local schools through various Doughraiser initiatives and with community outreach programs through our End of Day Giving program. I also plan on working with local sports teams and programs that support children. 

If you were a treat or loaf from COBS Bread, which one would you be and why? 

I would be a cinnamon bun because it has many layers that make it what it is. These would represent my husband, children, parents, sister and friends that support me and have made me who I am today. I have a serious and professional side which would be the cinnamon bun without icing, then the fun and adventurous side to me which would be the cinnamon bun with icing.  

When making a cinnamon bun, the baker takes a lot of care, time and effort to make sure the final product is great! I feel that this represents me as a person because I put a lot of care, time and effort into all that I do.  

I also like that the cinnamon buns come in mini sizes as it makes me think of my own minis, my 3 children.
