After 8 years of experience and much encouragement from family and friends, alongside with his wife Stavroulla, the opening of the first patisserie shop in Ayia Zoni, Limassol was opened. Endless hours and continuous hard work established the name we all know today, “Wilton Patisserie”.
Throughout the years the Company went from strength to strength and opened another 4 outlets, 2 more in Limassol namely Ayias Fylaxeos and Nikou Pattihi. The other 2 outlets were opened in Larnaca and in Paphos.
Running a business from abroad proved to be a difficult challenge for Chris and decided to look for a business partner who lived in the UK and had the attributes to run and take the business forward. In August 2010, Andrew Georgiou became Chris’s partner and although Andy was not in this industry, his background in the catering industry was well acknowledged and respected, especially the fast food industry where he worked and later took over the well known “Wimpy Bar” in Green Lanes, Harringay. The two partners complimented each other and have created a brand which is of the highest standard for everyone to enjoy.
The 2nd shop was born in Linopetra, Limassol. This housed a new production factory which was operative up until 2011 and servicing 6 outlets.
In May 2008, the Company expanded abroad to its biggest challenge yet, the UK market, namely in North London, Southgate where it quickly established a bond with the Greek community and other cultural countries.
The next step was to move to a new and bigger premises and in 2011 the Company opened a state of the art production factory producing well over 300 products in savouries , cakes, desserts, wedding and christening cakes, favours etc.
