It has been making a name for itself the last year, and now a popular wholesale bakers in Paisley has announced plans to expand.

They have announced plans to expand their operation in the town, by opening up a new premises located on the corner of Causeyside Street and Forbes Place. 

The location was previously a coffee shop known as Blend, but Paisley Pie Co say they will be carrying out a full refurbishment, with a view to opening this summer.

Speaking exclusively to The Herald, Scott McGinlay said it's only the beginning for the company. 

He added: "The people of Paisley have truly backed our story and have been a massive part of our journey. Hard work and consistency is the reason we have succeeded to date and our great staff who work hard to keep up with demand everyday.

"I started out in Paisley as a caterer eight years ago when I was 25 opening my first shop. I had a passion for pies following in my dad's footsteps and being brought up in the butcher industry fuelled that. 

"I eventually saw a gap in the market and decided to branch into the gourmet pie game. Since opening we’ve had a huge success with people coming to Paisley from all over. It's been overwhelming. Everywhere I go, people say are you the 'Paisley pie guy'.

"It's great to be expanding. The new premises will allow us to showcase even more ideas that we have kept up our sleeves for when we have more space to display everything. We will have sit in available for up to 50 customers and a wider variety of pies on sale. 

"Future expansion plans are also on the horizon for Paisley Pie Co. The aim is to wholesale our gourmet pies into shops & stores throughout the UK. We will also be looking to open shops in more locations out with Paisley."
