Dieter and Li Li are the dynamic duo behind BAKERHAUS - Shanghai Catering & More Concept.
Dieter, a German fortune top 500 executive, who came to Shanghai for work and after a while started to dearly miss high quality food from back home. Thus, in 2011, he bought a local bakery next to his home in Pudong.
Then, he hired European Master Bakers and Chefs to create a selection of bread, patisserie and western food dishes with a simple objective: Make it same or better!
Only best quality and carefully selected ingredients were good enough, as food safety is a constant concern, so the focus from the beginning was not just great product but also reliability and quality. Therefore, the team was trained up to a high performance level and is continuously supported by systems and tools normally only found inside a fortune 500 company.
And so BAKERHAUS - Bakery and Cafe was set up from the beginning to make the best, safe and fresh food with no shortcuts!
At first, because many foreign families lived in the same area near the bakery, these families became initial customers.
Then, many customers become friends, contributing their family recipes to expand the menu and giving advice for further improvements.
Slowly, BAKERHAUS become a home away-from-home for a community of like minded people who worked and lived in Shanghai and did not want to miss their favourite dishes.
Most of these foreigners, like Dieter, are senior executives in foreign enterprises or teachers in schools. As BAKERHAUS - Bakery and Cafe served the community and earned their trust, they recommended and introduced BAKERHAUS to the companies and schools they worked for.
That in turn uncovered a strong demand for professional catering services for single and multi day events such as meetings and conferences. It turned out to be a constant headache for anyone trying to organize food supply for a bigger gathering of senior managers or private cocktail party in Shanghai.
This is where Li Li, a co-founder of BAKERHAUS - Shanghai Catering and More, comes in.
Li Li, like Dieter, also worked in senior positions in fortune 500 companies, thus knows the catering needs first hand from organizer and participants perspective.
Hence, once the secretary or event hostess communicate their catering requirements, Li Li can very quickly understand what is needed and advice on the best solution, then coordinate everything to ensure the event organizer can sleep easy and look great in front of the guests.
Over time, BAKERHAUS - Shanghai Catering Service for business meetings kept improving and has won the trust of many foreign executives and their secretaries as a reliable partner to make their life easier!
