The Customer

McGhee’s Family Bakers was founded in 1935 by Dugald McGhee at the original bakehouse in Oran Street, Maryhill in Glasgow. Still run as a family business more than 75 years later, McGhee’s cover the central belt of Scotland sending vans to Edinburgh, Dunfermline, Stirling and Perth on a daily basis, whilst establishing themselves as a supplier of the Glasgow favourite “Crispy Rolls”.
