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...

Longboard Bar and Grill has been using Jean-Pierre Bakery for over 8 years.
Their brioche buns are an integral part of the success of our Signature burgers here at Longboard. The amazing Turkish bread has been used in several different menu items and more recently our garlic and cheese focaccias.
We look forward to many more years of business partnership with the wonderful team at JP Bakery.
