Purebread is based in the popular resort town of Whistler, BC.
The company initially started when we began baking artisan breads and selling them at local farmer’s markets back in 2009. The demand for our homemade baking was overwhelming and we soon were forced to turn our hobby into a full-fledged business.
We then opened a bricks and mortar location, selling breads, cakes, pastries and other artisan foods to the local Whistler market. Located in the industrial part of Whistler, known as Function Junction, our new-concept café/bakery/restaurant has turned out to be a phenomenal success.
Currently, our business sells artisan breads, cakes, pastries, organic coffee, organic teas, savoury pies, sandwiches and pizza. We have a very local clientele base comprised over local residents, tourists and businesses in the surrounding area.
Currently, we employ 18 people and in the summer months, our workforce swells to 25 people as our distribution increases to both Squamish and Vancouver. We have just signed a lease on another location that will be located in Whistler Village and have plans to hire another 10-15 employees in the next 2-3 months. – less
