Business Opening: COBS BREAD Bolton Country Plaza Bakery

Owner Mary Deltin her husband and team at Cobs Bread

Recently COBS BREAD Bolton Country Plaza celebrated their grand opening in Bolton. We asked owner, Mary Deltin, to tell us a little about the business and why she chose COBS as the business she wanted to run.

Tell us about your business.

We are COBS BREAD Bolton Country Plaza. COBS Bread is part of Bakers Delight, an Australian bakery franchise established in 1980 by Roger and Lesley Gillespie. Since expanding from a multi-generational family business, we’ve grown to over 700 bakeries in communities around the world, including 145 bakeries across Canada.

We bake fresh every day and donate all leftover bread to local Bolton charities: The Exchange, Aspira Retirement Living, Caledon Senior Centre, ShipShey Peace Ranch.

We are open from 6am - 8pm Monday to Saturday, and 6am - 7pm on Sundays.

Tell us about you, why did you decide to open your own business? 

I am a local resident (live in Caledon) and have many family members who also live in Caledon. My son plays for the Caledon Hawks!

I have always been passionate about giving back to the community, and after I learned about COBS and their End of Day Giving program, I knew I wanted to be a part of the COBS family. I am passionate about my family, my pets, and baking!  I love making pizzas at home; I even make my own dough!

Why did you decide to locate in Bolton?

I am a local resident, as I live in Caledon with my family (husband and 3 kids). My husband grew up playing at the local rinks, and we have family who live here. 

Our family had a butcher shop here in town (husband's great grandparents). My husband's grandfather worked for the Toronto Region Conservation Authority, and patrolled Albion Hills, Glen Haffey and Heart Lake. Bolton is a growing town with lots of potential and lovely people. 

 What is your favourite item that you make at COBS?

I LOVE the chocolate scone and love making grilled cheese with the sourdough! My kids love it, too!

What is the best bit of wisdom you have learned along the way? 

Patience and kindness matter. Everyone has been so supportive, kind and patient through this whole process. 

COBS Bread Bolton Country Plaza Bakery is located at 301 Queen Street South, unit 2B | website
