We bake bread and cakes in a Scandinavian way.
Our bakery is located near the central bus station in the middle of Chiang Rai. Here you will find breads and cakes baked the Scandinavian way. The bakery is frequented by both locals and foreign visitors. Today, there is also the opportunity to eat delicious Thai and western food in a warm and peaceful environment.
In the late 1990s we began baking cinnamon buns to sell on the main road. This turned out to be a pretty good business idea. Dreams of a café located in the city began to take shape. In 2001 two of our oldest girls were given the opportunity to be trained as pastry chefs at Peder Printer Patisserie School in Varberg, Sweden. In 2002 we found a location in the heart of ChiangRai where we began offering Swedish coffee. By 2005 the business had expanded to include food service.
BaanChivitMai Bakery has a permanent staff of cooks, bakers and servers. During weekends and school breaks, the older children at BCM have the opportunity to work there where they receive on-the-job training as well as the ability to earn some pocket money.
BCM Bakery also serves as a vital source of information about BaanChivitMai Foundation. Customers who visit the café can read about and look at pictures of BCM's various activities. All profits from the bakery go back to the Foundation to save children from vulnerable situations and give them a better future.
The café’s offerings of cinnamon buns, marzipan pastries, chocolate balls and cakes in the Scandinavian style have become quite popular in Chiang Rai. More recently BCM Bakery has begun offering some very tasty Thai food while continuing to serve more traditional items like Swedish meatballs with lingonberries and other western dishes.
