Brumby's Bakeries (commonly shortened to just Brumby's) is a chain of Australian retail bakeries. It was established in 1975 by Roger Gillespie[4] (co-founder of Bakers Delight) with the opening of its first bakery, The Old Style Bread Centre, in Ashburton, Victoria.

Company information[edit]

In 2003, the chain was listed on the Bendigo Stock Exchange.[3]

On 18 December 2006, Brumby's announced Retail Food Group (ASXRFG) had proposed a merger.[2]

As of 2007, Brumby's Bakeries has over 320 franchises throughout Australia and New Zealand, up from 280 in 2003.[3]

In 2012 Brumby's Bakeries Managing Director wrote an internal memo that suggested franchisees increase their prices and "let the carbon tax take the blame".[5]

The Managing Director since resigned the internal memo in which he urged shops to "let the carbon tax take the blame" for price rises.

The bakery chain is part of the publicly listed Retail Food Group, which also owns Donut King and Michel's Patisserie.
