Chocolates, cakes and sweets all day, everyday! Following on the success of their first store in Morningside, Flour & Chocolate opened a second, bigger patisserie in Northgate to cater to its growing clientele. The new premises still features a diverse selection of their bestsellers including their popular almond croissants, artisan spreads and other gourmet finds. Customers can enjoy their sweets and savouries with a cup of fresh coffee either to-go or in-store where there’s ample seating for everyone.
Commercial Kitchen by Food Strategy
Flour & Chocolate owner, Lachlan Scott, enlisted Food Strategy to handle the design of the commercial kitchen at Northgate. With future business expansion in mind, he wants the kitchen to be able to accommodate an increasing volume of sweets, baked goods and spreads that they will be offering both in the Northgate store and for distribution in future stores and stockists.
Everything about the kitchen - from the design to the choice of equipment - caters to large-scale food production. With Flour & Chocolate’s menu and artisan products all created in-house, they need sufficient space to be able to accommodate bulk orders as well as customers walking in to enjoy their desserts.
