Roger Gillespie, founder of Baker’s Delight and Brumby’s bakery chains

Roger Gillespie knows his dough. A fourth-generation baker, Gillespie started his first bakery to help fund a local school in 1975. This became the first Brumby’s. In 1980 he launched Baker’s Delight, to great success, and the stores kept coming. There are now 700 franchisees here and in New Zealand, Canada and the US.
