Pastry lovers will be able to sink their teeth into an array of gourmet pies, sausage rolls and other delectable baked goods with the opening of a new bakery in Burpengary.

Banjo’s Bakery Cafe will be warming up the ovens in preparation for the grand opening of its new store in Burpengary on Wednesday, June 21. 

Up to 40 jobs have been created at the store, which will be located at 148E Station Rd, Burpengary.

This will be the 12th Banjo’s Bakery to open in Queensland, and the second in Moreton Bay, complementing the existing store in Redcliffe.

This will be the third store for local franchisee Taimoor Ashraf.

“I’m beyond excited to open my third Banjo’s store, bringing the much-loved franchise to Burpengary, offering locals the perfect place to swing by and pick up a great tasting coffee, fresh sandwich or signature pastry,” Taimoor said.

“All our menu items are baked fresh on-site daily, with the utmost pride taken in providing customers with the best baked goods in the business.

“We look forward to meeting the local community, who we hope will become our new regulars, as we open our doors on June 14.”

Showcasing a range of freshly made sandwiches and loaded salad rolls, the breakfast and lunch hotspot offers a variety of alternatives catering to every appetite. The Burpengary-based Banjo’s will also offer a range of quick dinner options to take home.

This new store will also feature a drive-through providing customers with access to the bakery and cafe ranges from their car.

To celebrate the launch, the bakery is giving away 1,000 small savouries to the local community, with one lucky local set to win a year’s worth of free coffee if they download the Banjo’s App and nominate Burpengary as their favourite store.

The store will be open from 4am-6pm daily.

Signature pie flavours

Renowned for its Signature Pie flavours including the Chicken Parmigiana, Double Cheeseburger and Tasmanian Curried Scallop pies, the bakery will bring more than 35 years of baking experience to locals.

Banjo’s Bakery Cafe Chief Executive Officer Jessica Saxby said Queenslanders love their pies.

“Queensland is home to some of the most avid pie lovers in Australia and opening a Burpengary store for locals from Moreton Bay and surrounds offered the perfect recipe,” Jessica said.

“The team at Banjo’s are thrilled to introduce our incredible range of pastries and cafe items to Burpengary and we can’t wait to see locals fall in love with everything from our fresh pies, savouries, and sweet treats to our healthy sandwiches and coffees.”

Nationwide, Banjo’s Bakery has 45 stores spread across Tasmania, Victoria, New South Wales, South Australia and Queensland.
