Granier Bakery to open second London café amid expansion plans

Spanish bakery and café group Granier Bakery is to open a new bakery and café on Powis Street in London's Woolwich this November.

The 1,280 sq ft, 40-cover venue will be located in the Woolwich Arsenal Estate, and will be the brand's second in the UK after the first in Wood Green opened in February. It marks the beginning of the company's planned expansion drive in London.

It will serve the brand's usual 64-strong range of artisanal breads and pastries, as well as coffee and other hot drinks for sit-in customers.

Granier, which has over 270 bakeries in Spain, joins a host of other brands to have announced opening plans for the Woolwich development, including Geronimo Inns and Hop Stuff Brewery.

The Woolwich Arsenal Estate is in the town centre of Woolwich and features 350,000 sq ft of retail and leisure space, alongside over 60 residential apartments. It is also set to receive a boost once the new Crossrail train network opens.

David Parera, expansion director at Granier, added: "Of the many options available to us in London, the Woolwich Arsenal Estate was the most exciting. It was the obvious choice for the start of our expansion."
