SIX JOBS were created when a new bakery opened in Bognor Regis on Wednesday.
The outlet for Warrens Bakery was the first for the Cornish company on the south coast.
As reported, it is located in The Arcade in the High Street and has been opened in partnership with local businessman Lee Johnston.
It will showcase the artisan bakery’s range of breads, pasties and sweet and savoury treats.
Warrens Bakery, founded in 1860, prides itself on being the oldest bakery in Cornwall and is recognised as the world’s oldest Cornish pasty maker.
Its chairman, Mark Sullivan, said: “We are thrilled to open in the historic town of Bognor Regis, the first of many new stores anticipated in the south coast area. We have been inundated with requests to open in West Sussex and the Home Counties.
“So it’s great to arrive at last, bringing craft bakery and our award-winning products to local customers.”
Cllr Phil Woodall, the town mayor of Bognor Regis, attended the opening. He said: “This is what regeneration is all about and a sign we are moving in the right direction.”
