About Us

Located in the heart of Mount Maunganui, The BakeShack has been serving up delicious traditional baked goods to locals and visitors alike for over 16 years. As a local institution, we're proud of the long-standing relationship we have with so many of our customers, and of our reputation for great service - and great food!

It's a community that we're proud to be a part of, and the intrinsic values of our town are also reflected in the experience we deliver to all our customers - we're a friendly, local, family-run business that understands the importance of a personal touch.

Our success lies in never compromising on quality. A team of skilled, dedicated bakers create all our retail, wholesale and catering products in-house using traditional methods. Most importantly, we're committed to supporting and strengthening local enterprise through using high-quality, locally-sourced ingredients.

In 2016, born and bred Tauranga lad, Marty Mayston is now heading up the Bake Shack team. Having worked for a large New Zealand baking company, where he specialised in people, operations and food quality, and then also spending time in Sydney at one of the largest baking sites in the Southern Hemisphere, Marty brings with him an indepth understanding of the industry and an unwavering commitment to delivering top quality products. Embarking on a seachange with his young family by his side, Marty knew that the Bake Shack was the perfect opportunity to bring his expertise back to New Zealand, and to develop a family business in a town that he is proud to call home.
