In 1980, Roger and Lesley Gillespie opened the first Bakers Delight in Hawthorn, Melbourne, with their friend Gary Stephenson.
They chose the name because they believed that every loaf, every roll, every pizza and bun should be a delight to bake, a delight to eat and the service you receive is delightful.
Now, Bakers Delight can be found in more than 700 locations across Australia, Canada, USA and New Zealand.

 “On average our sales have jumped by approximately $40,000 per year with Bartercard, as it attracts customers you wouldn’t have without the card.”  

Ryan Kirkham, Bakers Delight franchisee and owner of Making Dough 
  
 
 

A Bakers Delight franchisee has created a partnership with Bartercard, which has attracted approximately $300,000 in sales over the last six years – that’s a lot of loaves!  
 
Ryan started as a 16-year-old apprentice baker with Bakers Delight in 2000, and today has Bakers Delight franchises in Kawana and Maroochydore, and leases out store space to Bakers Delight Ballina. 
 
“I was introduced to Bartercard in 2010, and have been selling bread through the cashless network since, which earns me a digital currency that I can spend at thousands of businesses around the country,” he said.  

 
 

“Every time I use Bartercard to pay for business or lifestyle expenses, I conserve cash to spend in other areas.” 
 
Ryan said Bartercard has been successful in his business, because he needs to make a high volume of sales every day to stay viable. 
 
“Bartercard has helped me grow my customer base and sell excess product, leaving me with less bread wasted at the end of each day.  It really fits in with our ‘baked fresh daily’ approach! On average our sales have jumped by approximately $40,000 per year with Bartercard, as it attracts customers you wouldn’t have without the card. 

 
 

“I use Bartercard to pay for a range of business expenses from staff accommodation incentives, to gifts with purchase, marketing campaigns and sponsorships.  I sponsor the USC Basketball Club and the Hear and Say Foundation with Bartercard which is a viable way to support local organisations while connecting with the community.”
