Bakers Oven was founded by Allied Bakeries in 1976 and its first location was in Barnard Castle. In 1994 it was taken over by Greggs and the number of Bakers Oven stores was significantly reduced, they were either sold or rebranded as Greggs. However recently the brand has been revitalised and existing shops are in the process of being rebranded to the Greggs brand of which total to 165 new Greggs in the UK.

Re-branding to Greggs

It was announced on 9 December 2008 that Bakers Oven South and Midlands divisions would fully merge with Greggs PLC therefore rebranding all 165 Bakers Oven shops to the Greggs PLC brand forming the division of Greggs East.
