There are few local delicacies more iconic than the beloved Aussie pie. A staple feature of the quintessential Queensland lifestyle and a key centrepiece of many-a-childhood memory, there is no denying they are part of the Australian fabric. Australia’s pie consumption sits between 270 to 300 million per year, making this culinary classic as financially appealing as it is flavoursome. And for any interested parties, an unprecedented business opportunity has presented itself.
The multi award-winning gourmet pie and pastry shop, Meldrums Pies in Paradise, has been serving up its scrumptious range of over 40 pies and pastries to Cairns pie connoisseurs and visitors for over a decade. The humble Aussie pie has been transformed by Meldrums with hand crafted delights like Cheese and Bacon, Caribbean Chicken, Moroccan Lamb and Vegan Blackberry pies on offer - and gluten free sausage rolls, custard tarts, rum balls and a vast array of delectable desserts.
Champion Pie Maker and Pastry Chef, Graham Meldrum, and his wife Dania have now decided to retire and are offering this outstanding business to the market.
