Abstract

This case describes a small bakery and confectionery business operating from leased premises in a Thames Valley market town. The business is owned and managed by the Master Baker and his son. The bakery products are sold through a shop on the same site as the bakery. The major issue concerning the owner is how to manage an extra site he is buying in the same town which he intends to use for manufacture and retailing. Secondary issues involve questions of layout and job design - flexibility. This case is one of a series intended for use on undergraduate Business Studies or business-related degree programmes, as an introduction to Operations Management (680-004-1 to 680-014-1).
