Twelve Triangles serves up Melrose expansion

BAKERY chain Twelve Triangles has chosen Melrose for its first branch outside Edinburgh.

The new shop in the Borders takes the company’s total number of stores up to eight.

Twelve Triangles has moved into the High Street site occupied previously by The Bakehouse.

The bakery will buy ingredients from Melrose’s Purple Plum greengrocer and Martin Baird butchers for its soups, sandwiches, and toasties, which will be served in the bakery’s café and to take away, along with Fortitude coffee.

Head baker Emily Cuddeford, who founded the bakery chain with Rachel Morgan, said: “We are extremely proud of our Twelve Triangles Edinburgh home, and it will always remain as our flagship location.

“The timing felt right to step out of our comfort zone and Melrose in the Borders felt a natural fit with its thriving community of independent businesses, and we’re absolutely delighted that we’re now making it a reality.”

Cuddeford and Morgan, who both have backgrounds in fine art, founded their sourdough business in 2011.
