Jean-Pierre Artisan Bakery

Meet Jean-Pierre

Jean-Pierre Artisan Bakery’s Founder and Owner

You had me at “G’day”… Jean-Pierre will tell you with his thick French accent that it was his first reaction when he arrived in Townsville fresh from France in the mid-eighties.

Shortly after, he joined the family-owned “Le Cafe de France”. That was the start of his love affair with introducing North Queenslanders to the delights of French breads and pastries.

Jean-Pierre transformed his retail bakery into one of the most successful wholesale artisan bakery in North Queensland.

His recipe for success? His love for the art of artisan food and customer service…
