Visit the stock-free workshop of our lean bakery

Interviewee: Jesus Marquez, process engineer, 365.café

In the previous video, Emi explained how our chain of 100+ bakeries is managed using lean. Today, I would like to tell you more about what goes on in the back of our shops/bakeries.

I will show you one of our “365 Obrador” shops, a new concept of bakery that brings together show cooking, lean thinking and customer focus. In these bakeries, we make bread on site rather than having it delivered from our central workshop like we used to. The most striking thing for a newcomer might be the very small size of the workshop and the complete lack of inventory – we have learned long ago that more space always translates into more waste. We focus on keeping our supply system as efficient as possible to keep only what’s strictly necessary.

Watch the video below to learn how we are ensuring we offer the highest-quality products to our customers, and how we are improving the lives of our bakers in the process.

You can read all about the 365 story in The Lean Bakery.
