A Doncaster company with a 50 year heritage as a family run
business in its home town has opened a new retail outlet in the
Frenchgate Shopping Centre, Doncaster.
As part of the company's plans to expand its retail operation,
The Topping Pie Company (Retail) Limited, an offshoot of the pie
manufacturing business, started trading at the centre in
Located on the second floor of the Frenchgate Centre at the top
of the escalator, the retail outlet will trade for 7 days a week
and staff will greet customers wearing the traditional trademark
gingham tabards and mop caps. During the first week of
trading, Toppings will offer pie tastings for shoppers.
Commenting on the new retail outlet, Roger Topping, managing
director of The Topping Pie Company said;
"As a family run Doncaster business, trading for 50 years, we
are delighted to be launching a new outlet in the Frenchgate
shopping centre, which has been at the heart of my home town for
more than 40 years.
"When my father, Bill Topping, opened our original butchers shop
in Scawsby, near Doncaster in 1961, little did he know that it was
the start of a multi award winning company whose products would one
day grace the counters of Selfridges and Harvey Nichols. He
moved the shop to the Doncaster Market Hall a decade later to
accommodate a growing customer base and he is delighted to see our
pies on sale today in the hub of Doncaster's town centre,"
The company has now transformed from a small Doncaster family
butchers to a successful speciality pie business, employing 50
people, with customers including; ASDA and The Co-operative.
