Updated 28/6/21 with opening dates
Jolene Bakery and its offshoot Big Jo have been a huge success story of the past few years - you only have to see the queues snaking down from both during lockdown to know that.
They now have three new openings planned for this year. The first will be in the summer, in Shoreditch, on Redchurch Street. The next up will be on Islington's Colebrooke Row. Finally there's the new Jolene on Well Street in Hackney. All are what they're calling "neighbourhood bakeries" - with the intention of providing more space to sell baked goods made from the raw materials supplied by farms who subscribe to "a sustainable and soil positive regenerative system".
"Each one will also have its own unique character," they explained, "by performing one considered activity: one making jams, another playing with booch, kefir & ferments, the other making chocolates, another serving small bits with wine into the early evenings."
We'll have more on each of those openings as we get them.
