Walking into the COBS Bread at South Point Annex on an early Saturday morning, you are sure to be greeted by Kiran Behl’s smiling and friendly face.

She has a rare gift – she makes you feel like the most important person in the bakery, and that you’ve been friends for years.

“How are you!” she asks. “Thank you for coming! Please try some of our Sunflower Flax Sourdough. Just came out of the oven.”

The beginning of July marks the 10-year anniversary of Kiran Behl owning the COBS Bread bakery at South Point Annex.

“I can’t quite believe it’s only been 10 years,” Behl says. “While it’s gone by so quickly, the community has changed so much from what it was 10 years ago.”

Behl was the second COBS Bread franchisee in the network and the first woman franchisee.

As both a business woman and citizen, Behl is an active member of the South Surrey/White Rock community. The bakery is an active supporter of local organizations such as the Peace Arch Hospital Foundation and the Semiahmoo House Society, in addition to charities that benefit from receiving COBS’ End of Day Giving product.

Behl has been recognized by the Rotary and is an active member of the Chamber of Commerce.

“I live in this area. I do business in this area. It’s a no-brainer for me to be a part of the community in which I work and live,” she says.

Behl’s baking team has also had its share of recognition. In COBS Bread’s Fall 2015 internal baking competition, the bakery took home the first prize, accumulating more points than any other 40 B.C. bakeries for their product submissions, judged by members of COBS Bread’s production technical baking team.

For the upcoming anniversary event, Behl continues to practise what she preaches. The bakery will host a fundraiser for the Ride to Conquer Cancer. And for the July 2 weekend, $1 from every six-pack of buns sold will be donated to the Ride to Conquer Cancer, benefitting the BC Cancer Foundation.

Naturally, Behl had another idea to make the event that more impactful.

“I’m so excited for this event. We’re also going to have 2015 MasterChef Canada winner himself, David Jorge, to make gourmet tastings with us. It’s going to be a great event.”

Will there be another 10 years for Behl at COBS Bread South Point Annex?

“Oh, you bet,” Behl says. “I love being here and doing what I do. I have a great team who is proud of doing what they do. I am so thankful to every customer who walks through those doors. That they come to us to get their fresh bread for their families… that means everything to me.

“That’s why I give back, so they know that their hard-earned dollars are going back into the community.”
