The Food We Do brand has spent the last eight years growing as a catering and wholesale business producing fresh assortments of pastries.
But last week, business owner and pastry chef Martin Luhovy entered the brand into the retail market for the first time, with his new hole-in-the-wall cafe/kitchen now open at 44 Rocket Street.
After renting a kitchen at The Greens on William for a number of years, Mr Luhovy said he felt ready to move into a space of his own.
"Around six months ago, I decided the time was right to get a dedicated retail space happening," he said.
"I've held a regular stall at the weekend markets [Farmers' and Riverside Market] over the years, but it's always been a dream of mine to have my own cafe and kitchen."
Food We Do specialises in a wide range of pasty-based goods, including pies, sausage roles, Danishes, quiches, tarts and slices.
Mr Luhovy said the retail space will complement his existing wholesale and catering outlets.
"I supply a number of local of shops, and often work as a caterer for Bathurst Regional Council, Bathurst Memorial Entertainment Centre, The Greens on William and various other companies," he said.
"The idea has always been to promote Food We Do as an umbrella business with multiple outlets, and a space for retail purposes was the final piece of the puzzle."
The new store features a diverse kitchen space with a large cool room and a service window fitted out by Insulate Double Glazing.
Mr Luhovy said visitors can expect the same friendly service regularly experienced at the weekend markets.
"A regular stall at the markets has taught me the importance of having a presentable selection of produce to show to customers," he said.
"We hope to have signage up and running for the shop in the near future, and it will be called exactly what it is: Pastry Kitchen."
The shop is open from 6am to 2pm, Monday to Friday.
