Wild rides and tasty treats - two iconic Yorkshire businesses partner up!

Scarborough based Cooplands Bakery will be joining forces with Yorkshire’s biggest theme park and award-winning zoo Flamingo Land, next month.

The 135-year-old Yorkshire bakery business will be opening a brand-new concept shop, called Cooplands eats & seats, in the heart of the theme park, in May. The partnership will create around 30 local jobs.

The shop will sell favourites that Cooplands’ customers know and love including freshly made sandwiches, their perfect pastry sausage rolls, & delicious sweet treats. There will be an extended range of hot food, with the shop also selling hot sandwiches, paninis, & toasties, freshly made on-site every day.

To satisfy hungry holidaymakers on the move, Cooplands will be supplying their mouth-watering goods to other sites in the theme park and leisure centre, all baked and freshly prepared fresh on the theme park’s grounds.

Belinda Youngs, CEO at Cooplands, said “We are very proud to become a partner of the great Yorkshire brand that Flamingo Land is and are excited for our two Yorkshire businesses to come together. Cooplands is well known for our friendly service, good quality food and good honest value making it the perfect partner for a great family day out at Flamingo Land.”

Gordon Gibb, Flamingo Land’s CEO, said “We are delighted to be joining Cooplands in this very exciting project. Two fantastic great Yorkshire brands are joining forces to deliver top class fun and food to our fantastically loyal guests who we can`t wait to welcome back on April 12th.”

This latest partnership will see the opening of Cooplands’ 177th shop, securing its position as the second-largest bakery chain in the UK.
