Celebrating a year of loaves in Sparwood

The Loaf Bakery in Sparwood celebrated its first birthday on Friday, Feb. 20 with prizes and fun for their customers.

The Loaf Bakery in Sparwood celebrated its first birthday on Friday, Feb. 20 with prizes and fun for their customers.

The smaller location is an expansion of the original Fernie-based business, which celebrated its fifth year of selling handmade and freshly baked bread in January.

“Our Sparwood location is smaller and so we run it a bit different than the Fernie business, but our customers are loyal and we’re really pleased with how the last year has gone with expanding the franchise,” said owner Phil Gadd.

Gadd said that the Sparwood Loaf experienced an increase in customers that day and that each customer was entered into a draw for free lunch, coffee or various other items for a week as part of the bakery’s customer appreciation day.

Gadd has ideas of expanding the Sparwood location even further and is looking at options to make the business bigger but right now is happy with how things have gone.
