Cardiff Dough and Co was established in June 2020 during the first Covid 19 lockdown.
Ashley and Rachael (Directors/Husband and Wife) spent their free time in lockdown developing a Brioche Doughnut recipe. Hundreds of doughnuts later, having fed friends and family, they had something they could potentially sell. The Instagram account was born, and boy did it take off. The increase in demand forced Cardiff Dough and Co to start selling at local farmers markets. Here the demand grew even more, we had queues every weekend, but we couldn’t physically make enough. It was all a little surreal!
After a few months of trading, we were invited to take on our very own pop up shop. We couldn’t say no to the opportunity and ran with it. That was when we took over Clearwater Parade alongside some other great independent businesses. Our very own shop, this is where we had in insight to what a business was.
The support was unbelievable. The queues went on and on until we again couldn’t produce enough. We recruited three members staff to help with demand and what a difference that made. Cardiff Dough and Co made a little name for themselves at this shop and will always remember Clearwater Way, Roath.
Onwards and Upwards! Cardiff Dough and Co now have a new production unit/bakery in Rumney, Cardiff. This is where the magic happens. All products are made within this unit fresh daily. We have a small collection point at the Rumney Unit as well as transporting to our doughnut van, farmers markets, events and wholesale customers, in and around South Wales.
