To celebrate the much-anticipated launch, Banjo's Bakery Cafe offered the local community 1,000 small savouries free of charge. One lucky local won a year's supply of free coffee by downloading the Banjo's App and selecting the Burpengary store as their favourite location.

“All our menu items are baked fresh on-site daily, with the utmost pride taken in providing customers with the best-baked goods in the business.

Taimoor expressed his excitement about opening his third Banjo's store and bringing the beloved franchise to Burpengary. He highlighted the bakery's commitment to providing locals with top-quality coffee, fresh sandwiches, and signature pastries, all baked fresh on-site daily.

Renowned for their mouth watering Signature Pie flavours such as Chicken Parmigiana, Double Cheeseburger, Tasmanian Curried Scallop, and their limited-edition Pizza Pie, Banjo's Bakery Cafe is expected to be warmly welcomed by pie enthusiasts in the Moreton Bay region. With over 35 years of baking experience, Banjo's aims to become a go-to destination for delicious baked goods in the area, complementing the existing store in Redcliffe.

"All our menu items are baked fresh on-site daily, with the utmost pride taken in providing customers with the best-baked goods in the business," said Taimoor.

Banjo's Bakery Cafe CEO, Jessica Saxby, emphasized the company's excitement about introducing its wide range of pastries and cafe items to Burpengary.

"Queensland is home to some of the most avid pie lovers in Australia, and opening a Burpengary store for locals from Moreton Bay and surrounds offered the perfect recipe," said Jessica.

"We can't wait to see locals fall in love with everything from our fresh pies, savouries, and sweet treats to our healthy sandwiches and coffees. As a community-based company, our loyal customers are at the heart of what we do. After all, everything tastes better when made from the heart."

The new Burpengary location will not only offer a delectable breakfast and lunch menu featuring freshly made sandwiches and loaded salad rolls, but it will also provide quick dinner options to accommodate busy families. Moreover, the store will feature a drive-thru, allowing customers to conveniently access the bakery and cafe offerings without leaving their vehicles.

Taimoor sees the expansion into the area as a significant milestone in Banjo's plan to bring their delectable treats closer to their fans. The store is expected to provide employment opportunities for 40 local residents, further contributing to the growth and prosperity of the community.

With its vast experience in the bakery industry and over seven million customers served each year, Banjo's Bakery stands as a trusted name in the business. Currently, the franchise operates 45 successful stores across Tasmania, Victoria, New South Wales, South Australia, and Queensland.

Whether grabbing a quick bite on the go or enjoying a leisurely meal at the cafe, locals can now savour the flavours crafted with love by Banjo's Bakery Cafe. The store will be open every day from 4 am to 6 pm. Online ordering is available through
