Legendary Kayani Bakery In Pune, The Home Of Shrewsbury, To Shut Down
Posted On 12th October, 2017 @ 16:13 pm by Debanjan Dhar


Those little round pieces of heaven that melt in your mouth might just become a thing of the past. Yes, the famous Shrewsbury biscuits that you found (read fought for in a maddening stampede for one box) at Pune’s 70-year-old Kayani Bakery might get even more difficult to get hold of. With much sorrow, we bring you this news that Pune’s Cantonment Board has asked the city’s legendary Kayani Bakery to shut down. Apparently, Kayani Bakery, started by Hormuz and Khodayar Irani in 1955, has been conducting business without a trade license since 2006. 

 Pune Cantonment Board President Brigadier Rajiv Sethi investigated the matter on Monday along with other officers. While DN Yadav, one of the officials involved in the investigation has confirmed the news with The Times of India, Kayani Bakery has refused to speak on the subject to the media. 









Two other restaurants, Bagban and Kwality have also been ordered to shut down. Owner of Bagban, Afzal Bagwan, who has closed the business following the orders has pointed out that 80% of constructions in the Cantonment area are illegal but the Board has chosen to shut down only these three. Aman Vij, owner of Kwality, said that there have been several renewals of his establishment’s license but they weren't given any notice of the inspection conducted by the Pune Cantonment Board.
