The Bikery

Hi! My name is Markus Spodzieja, a UVIC BFA graduate with a passion for baking. The Bikery began as a pilot project in 2017, aided by the City Council of Victoria to promote local and sustainable new businesses in the city. Through Kickstarter, money was raised to construct a simple cart, purchase ingredients and secure licensing. Within a few short months, the dream became a reality.

Soft pretzels sold on the weekends from the back of a bike all around town! (Dallas Road in particular) The project was successful, and an extremely beneficial learning curve that paved the way for many new and exciting ideas involving how to efficiently and creatively get pretzels into your hands.

Cut to 2019, where I am able to reopen full time, complete with a website and a smaller, more sustainable cart.  I now accept pre-orders online as well as catering orders for special events. I supply offices, business and gatherings, as well as keeping traditional with a daily route around the city. I am constantly innovating my menu and recipes, sourcing local ingredients whenever possible.

Keep an eye out on the streets of Victoria, and flag me down if you're feeling like a pretzel!
