Working in the bakery at ASDA we have many requests from customers, the one that sticks out in my mind was a lady arranging an incredibly large 50th birthday BBQ late in summer last year and another local supermarket had let her down on her order so she came to us at last minute, now I was the only baker in that Sunday morning and I had a lot to do however I put my head down and made this lady 200 packets of assorted (plain cheese and sesame seeded) white baps. She was so thankful when she came to pick them up. She was so thankful that the following weekend she brought in a whole cake she had made at home for the bakery team and mentioned us to her friends who also later came and ordered baps from us aswell.
