Subhan Bakery enjoys a reputation is because of Syed Khader who christened the bakery by his sons name, Syed Subhan, in 1951. The bakery has operated without a name since 1948 in a busy centre in Red Hills. “My grandfather sacrificed his time, family life, leisure and luxury to build the bakery,” says Syed Irfan, who now runs the bakery with his younger brother, Syed Imran. Thus, while the bakery exists in its present form over the last 69 years, the family has in fact been the business for over a century.
Now in the seventh generation, it is betting on technology to push their products. The bakery houses four floors imported from Germany and Italy to make biscuits, bread and pastries in a machine. The formula that funes the unique taste, of course, remains a well kept secret.
