Our Story

Cherrytree Bakery our storyCherrytree Bakery is a bespoke developer and manufacturer of premium sweet products for the coffee shop, foodservice and retail segments. Independent, family-run, and grounded in operational and technical excellence, we deliver a dedicated and complete service package in our own inimitable way.

We were founded in 1984 by Managing Director Gary Entwistle, starting life with one product and a unique processing technology. Regional favourites such as our Chorley Cake were to follow, and for many years we found success offering a range of quality traditional products to the major multiples.

Then came the Coffee Shop Revolution, and so our innovative spirit was guided in a new direction. Through continuous investment and a singular vision, we made the leap to become a market-leading provider of premium muffins, loaf cakes and mini bites for the coffee shop and foodservice segments.

From our purpose-built BRC Grade AA manufacturing site in the heart of Lancashire, we produce and distribute over 30 million indulgent hand-finished treats a year, ambient or frozen.

Our artisanal creations are born from a passion for insight-driven innovation, and with a uniquely flexible production process, we have the freedom to create truly special products – products that customers love and that deliver real sustainable value to our clients. But we’re not just about innovation and quality, our lean structure allows us to compete on the other things that matter, such as flexibility, responsiveness, and cost.

Our ambition for growth remains unabated, and we look forward to investing in and developing new opportunities, the Cherrytree way: customer-driven, with honesty and integrity, care and attention.
