Local Charity, The Bread Maker, is to expand its catering services by taking over the catering at Aspire Golf Centre on South Deeside Road.

The Bread Maker has been running an award-winning coffee house and artisan bakery in Rosemount Viaduct, Aberdeen, since 2006.

As well as offering freshly made bread and produce, it provides training and employment opportunities to adults with learning disabilities. Over the last few years it has benefited from a steady growth in sales from its bespoke Cakes for Occasions and its Outside Catering Services.

The new venture at Aspire will give the charity a second base to offer its produce across Deeside as well as giving more opportunities to adults with learning disabilities.

The Bread Maker will run the eatery independently at the golf centre, which boasts a 9 hole course, state of the art driving range and golf shop.

Donald Anderson, chief executive of the Bread Maker, welcomed the move: “Aspire is a first class golf centre that we are looking forward to working with. The move will also, more importantly, allow us to provide further opportunities for adults with learning disabilities, which we can then build on. It’s a very exciting time for us.”

The Bread Maker currently employs seventeen staff and provides some twenty four placements for adults with learning disabilities. Over the coming year, the move is hoped to create real job opportunities for adults with learning disabilities who have developed worked skills through training at the Bread Maker.
