Keep reading to learn a little more about Sara, what led her to this journey, and how she plans on giving back to the community!    

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

I first started my journey with COBS when I was attending university in Vancouver, BC, as a Sales Assistant and later developed into a Sales Manager. I then won the Lesley Gillespie award for sales in 2017. After deciding that opening a COBS is something I wanted to pursue as a career, I moved back to Ontario to experience what a new bakery opening was like in Waterdown. I have now been an operator for 4 years! 

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

I love connecting and collaborating with people. We have a network of such diverse individuals who bring so much expertise from their previous careers. It is also amazing to be a part of something that is loved by Canadians coast to coast.  

What led you to open your second bakery?  

The London community has been incredibly supportive, and it has been an honour to serve them over the past 4 years. I truly love what I do, and it makes me excited to bring COBS to other areas of our community. I want to delight our customers, inspire my team, and show more Londoners what makes our bakeries so special.  

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

We are looking forward to meeting 25 new team members, connecting with our customers and partnering with more organizations. After all the customer feedback, we are looking forward to finally bringing COBS to the south of London. I know it has been a long time and we are so thankful for your patience!  

What is your recipe for success?  

My focus when it comes to my business is my team and creating a workplace culture that is unmatched. People have always been my priority, ensuring that they always feel supported, appreciated and heard. Our team operates based on values, and believes in care, collaboration, and continuous growth which we embody in everything we do. This then translates to our customers having an incredible experience when they visit!   

How are you planning on getting involved in the community?  

Getting involved in the community is incredibly important to me!  I’m excited that we can add another 7 new organizations to our End of Day Giving program, to be able to support even more individuals in the community who are facing food insecurity.  

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

I would be a French Baguette… authentic, versatile, and pairs well with cheese.
