Key Fact

Founded in 1936


Crispy Rolls Sold Per Year

McGhee’s was founded in 1936 by Dugald McGhee at the original bakehouse in Oran Street, Maryhill, Glasgow.

The company operated and grew from this site, servicing the local shops and market with a range of freshly baked morning rolls, tea-bread and savoury products. Sons Jim, Calder, Douglas and Gavin all joined the company and became directors during the 1950s and 1960s. Sadly Douglas died at a very young age and did not see the move in 1969 to the custom- built premises at Murano Street, Maryhill.

These premises were indeed state of the art for the time, with the latest in bakery plant technology and also a custom built workshop for the servicing of company vehicles.

With a reputation for top quality products, McGhee's continued to grow into the catering trade whilst continuing to service their core customers locally with fresh morning goods.

During the 1990s the 3rd generation of McGhee's, Gordon, Stuart and Ian were installed as directors. Sadly during this period the company lost Gavin to a sudden illness, with Jim retiring. Calder retired in the early 2000s, leaving the 3 directors to plan the company's future.

Company growth meant that, by now, they were servicing across the central belt of Scotland sending vans to Edinburgh, Dunfermline, Stirling & Perth on a daily basis, whilst establishing themselves as a supplier of the Glasgow favourite “Crispy Roll”.

The directors' commitment meant a further move to state-of-the-art premises at the M8 food park in June 2005, where they now operate out of possibly the most efficient bakery production unit in Britain.
