Our Story

In 2009 Jason Danielson commenced working for the Queenstown Bakery having spent 26 years working in a number of Bakeries, managing businesses, and successfully running his own restaurant.

Jason was instrumental in growing the Queenstown Bakery from a small Retail Bakery into a large Retail / Wholesale business serving the tourist and hospitality industries in the Queenstown-Wanaka Lakes District and surrounding areas.

In December 2010 Jason's sister (Delwyn) and brother-in-law (Ian) purchased the Queenstown Bakery creating a family owned and managed business.

The business continued to grow under Jason's management supported by Delwyn and Ian who had collectively spent over 40 years in Retail and Business Banking.

In 2012 the business had out-grown its premises in the main street of Queenstown and the search began for a new property which could accommodate the future growth needs of the business.

This ultimately led to the acquisition of a bakery manufacturing facility in Wanaka in March 2013.

The iconic Doughbin Bakery on the Wanaka lakefront and the Kai Pai Brand was also acquired at that time.

Today, 'The Bakery' is one of the largest family owned and operated businesses in its market in the South Island of New Zealand supporting its Retail and Wholesale customers with a wide range of Artisan Bread products, a large selection of Gourmet Pies, Danishes, Cakes, Biscuits and Slices, and Gluten Free.
