Launched during lockdown in May 2020, Saint Croissants is the brainchild of Manchester-based Mum, Aimée Soudry.
When Aimée’s marketing work dried up when Covid-19 struck, she got to thinking of others ways to channel her creativity while stuck at home.
Being married to a French man, (and sick of baking banana bread!) Aimée decided to work on her pastry skills and started baking amazing loaded croissants and leaving them as door step deliveries to local friends, family and neighbours.
The loaded pastries were an instant hit on Instagram and gained a cult following with demand for Aimée’s amazing loaded bakes from all corners of the UK.
In just 12 months, Saint has amassed over 20,000 Instagram followers, established a nationwide delivery service, created a unique range of ‘Saint Swag’ merchandise, is available on Deliveroo and offers corporate virtual masterclasses and events.
In April 2021, Saint was chosen to be part of Northern Monk Brewery Co’s Patron’s Project. The following month, the brewer’s launched a Limited Edition Banana Cronut Flavoured Imperial Stout, called Go Bananas, inspired by Saint’s Cronut of the same name!
