Warrens Bakery is continuing its expansion outside its south west heartland, with a new franchise site opening in Gosport, Hampshire, this week.

It follows the opening of a further site in Hampshire at the end of January, on The Boulevard, London Road, and on Station Road in Harrow last month.

The Gosport bakery will be Warren’s fifteenth franchise store outside the south west of England, to open since February last year.

Warrens also has a new site planned for Kenilworth, Warwickshire.

The bakery chain announced its debut move into London, last November, with four new stores, and over the past year the c60-strong company has opened stores in Altrincham, Eastleigh, Southampton, Winchester, Birmingham and Southend.
