This is a story about a team who love what they do…read on….
We have a successful Natural Bread wholesale business supplying breads, rolls, burger buns, pastries, savouries and cakes to restaurants, cafés, farm shops and a wide range of businesses across the county.
One of those businesses is ChilliDogs - an event catering business based in South Oxfordshire, offering their gourmet, street food experience for parties, events and weddings. It is headed up by couple Dan and Steph who are passionate about offering good food and good times! They became wholesale customers last year so we thought we’d catch up with Steph, to see how they were getting on.
How did you hear about Natural Bread?
I was researching local Oxfordshire bakeries after our previous baker had let us down one too many times. After reading about your focus on just a few, natural ingredients, I knew it was a company I wanted to explore further. The lovely Claire Véry came to visit and talked us through the range and delivery terms along with a few tasty samples!
What products do you regularly buy?
We predominately buy the brioche hot dog rolls but also a vegan version Natural Bread has developed for us, using agave instead of egg wash. Our vegan customers love it as it still has the same fluffy, rich texture as the brioche one but with no animal products.
What do you like about working with Natural Bread?
Your customer service is really friendly, and we really feel we are supporting a local family business, which for us is really important to know our money is going to a good place. Your delivery terms are brilliant (deliveries 7 days a week) and you are always happy to discuss new requests, such as our vegan hot dog roll.
How has Natural Bread helped your business?
A lot of our customers are based in Oxfordshire and have heard of Natural Bread and they appreciate the fact we are using a local business. Also, since having switched to Natural Bread, our bread wastage has noticeably decreased as we can now order bread to come any day of the week and if wrapped well, the rolls freeze nicely too. Great for us and the environment!
What’s next for ChilliDogs & Natural Bread?
As we moving away from festivals to more private catering, we are seeing our menu expand so we look forward to trying other products from Natural Bread’s range such as the focaccia, pastries and burger buns. I love keeping an eye on your seasonal ranges too.
