Espresso Loca’s Taylor McMahon’s second venture, Sicario’s Bakery, opened its doors at Kensington Shopping Centre today offering a range of pies, sausage rolls and donuts.
Trading from Saturday 2 July the bakery will be open 6 am to 4 pm Monday to Friday and 8 am to noon each weekend.
Taylor McMahon said the team was excited to open and offer delicious treats, both sweet and savoury, to the community.
“We have the coffee shop on Quay Street which is going really well, we bought this place to introduce donuts and sweet treats as well,” Taylor said.
“It is a very different coffee to what we offer at Espresso Loca on Quay Street and pairs better with donuts and sweet treats.
“While Espresso Loca is all takeaway and was built to service people on the go, Sicario’s Bakery will be similar although we hope this will be a slightly slower-paced store for people to enjoy a donut or pie.”
“Down the track a little bit of seating will become available for people to utilise.”
Taylor said the location suited Sicario's Bakery perfectly.
“We had received feedback that there was not a massive market up this end of town for coffee, especially early in the morning so we are hoping to fill that gap,” he said.
“It was also a case of right place, right time.
“I think everyone is very excited for the donuts.”
Endup Cups, which is another venture of Taylors, will also be promoted through the bakery.
“Through Endup Cups we partner with Green Solutions Wide Bay to compost our specially made coffee cups in order to help the environment,” Taylor said.
“Espresso Loca was the flagship store to show people how Endup Cups can be used, not only in a cafe-style setting but also how customers can do their part in the recycling initiative through cup returns.
“Customers have the opportunity to take part in our recycling rewards program which gifts them 25 cents off their next coffee every time they bring their Endup Cup back to us to be composted.
“If you collect ten points in the program, that is $2.50 off your next order – there is no limit as to how many cups you can bring back.”
