Alfa Bakehouse,

Seddon & Yarraville, Victoria, Australia

Chris' love of baking and cakes birthed a dream to open a small cake shop in Yarraville with his brother George at the start of his journey in the hospitality industry. Using his experience and passion, it wasn't long before they started supplying their local Coles with Tsoureki, a traditional Greek Easter bread.


These days the brothers are running two popular locations under the Alfa Bakehouse banner and plan to expand their Yarraville store into a double-storey landmark bakery.
