Our Story

Our Story

Galloways Bakers was founded in 1971 by Ronald and Patricia Galloway who opened their first shop at 215 Ormskirk Road, Wigan trading as 'The Pie Shop' specialising as the name implies in producing the finest pies and pasties in the area, hot and ready to eat, using only quality ingredients.

In the late 1970's their Bakery business had grown to four shops all in and around the Wigan area, 'The Pie Shop' name was dropped and the shops were now called 'Galloways family Bakers'.

Continued growth and expansion saw the firm acquire more shops through the 1980’s in areas of Wigan like Aspull, Wallgate and Standish.

In 1989 the firm became a Limited Company and the Bakery was moved from Ormskirk Road to larger premises at Loch Street, Pemberton to cope with the increase production demands.

In 1997 The Bakery Station concept evolved with three new additions to the Galloways fleet of shops opening in Preston, St. Helens and Eccleston, the idea being that we would aim to serve our customers as quickly as possible in these outlets realising that time was precious for our customers who were generally on the move. This idea is now true in all of our outlets who aim to provide quick service of quality products throughout the day.

Expansion in 2000 has led to the company once again moving to larger bakery premises to cope with the increased volume of production. During this growth and increased volume of output, the company has always aimed to keep the same values that The Galloways family's success has been built on. This includes having hot breakfasts made fresh each morning, Hot Pies, Pasties and Sausage Rolls baked fresh all day in every one of our shops, fresh morning goods and quality confectionery made fresh every morning in our local Bakery, and fresh filled rolls with a variety of fillings made every day on site in each of our outlets.
