Bakery Kern, Graz
„The Bakery full of Ideas“ – Kern in Graz
Since 1953, the bakery Kern has been continuously working to become better and better and at the same time, learn something new every day. This experience is gladly shared, as is the bread that comes from it. Bread full of ideas and diversity. Bread full of taste and passion - simply the real way to bake. This craftsmanship is recognized not only in the products of the Bakery Kern, but also in the store concept. In a prominent location on Straßganger Straße, guests will find the Bakery Kern in a new building, where another impressive branch has opened. For the furnishings, owner Julius Kern once again relied on the proven cooperation with Aichinger planning specialist Ernst Sommerauer and his team from the planning office in Graz. Within a few weeks, a turnkey bakery café was created. A perfect combination of fine wood and modern lighting elements is what creates the special charm of the furnishing concept. Nostalgic tiles, the black steel construction of the bread rack and the modern bar counter with gastro-charm reflect the new diversity of the bakery Kern.
Bakery Küster - Strandhaus 37, Göttingen
With the Baker in the Caribbean!
Anyone in Göttingen who wants to immerse them self in a spontaneous short getaway, needn’t travel very far. As soon as you enter the new location of the Küster bakery, that holiday feeling comes naturally. Here you can immediately catch a glimpse of the AICHINGER ARTline counter: the wood that surrounds the ARTline counter is visually reminiscent of ship planks. The in-house caustic creations "Küstanien" lie in hammocks and are illuminated by light bulbs hanging from rugged mooring ropes. The swivel intermediate floor VarioFlip can easily disappear from the guests’ view after good sales in the late afternoon. Next to it, the so-called bread tower is positioned: a special design, which consists of three levels, where the lower two can be extended and thus easily filled.
An eye-catcher is the round recirculating air cooling counter AirMaxx. It is not only highlighted by the special lighting from we-shoplight, but also by its extraordinary design. The AirMaxx offers a 360 ° panoramic view of the many freshly baked pies and cakes. The bread rack Panevari Style skillfully sets baked goods into the background. Due to the extra-large and modular structure, each unit can be individually redesigned. In cooperation with AICHINGER, a unique oasis of well-being was created here
Bakery Rommel, Ludwigsburg
Rommel – the baker with ideas!
The Rommel bakery looks back on an 80-year history. In 1994, Master Baker Jürgen Rommel took over operation in its third generation and manages it still today. Under the motto "We are bakers and we remain bakers", the shop concept was fundamentally renewed together with AICHINGER. First, the bakery completely renounced all purchased goods. All bakery products are to be home-made without exception. In order to present them accordingly, AICHINGER was the right partner in the field of shop fitting. Beginning with a custom-made bread shelf up to the ARTline serving counter, a store concept was created that combines modern design with a special atmosphere and proven craftsmanship.
Kreuzer's Backhäusla, Kulmbach
Quality of Artisans
19 years full of handcrafted quality – Kreuzer’s Backhäusla. On 1 January 2000, the first branch in Kulmbach was opened. Today owners Gaby and Jochen Kreuzer operate a total of 7 branches. According to the Kreuzer family, the recipe for success for the taste and quality of bread depends on the use of the finest and highest of quality raw materials, as well as natural and regularly controlled ingredients from the region.
With the opening of the new Kreuzers store in the "Fritz Einkaufszentrum" (Shopping Center), Kulmbach is now all the richer with another quality bakery. Already from the outside, you have a view of the extraordinary counter system in the entrance area. The ARTline counter is an individual special design with an exclusive, unsupported glass top whose front consists of oxidized glass.
In the spacious seating area with sturdy swinging elements you can enjoy your breakfast or lunch in peace or just relax with a hot cup of tea or coffee. The small communication spot made of bamboo cane serves as place for a quick stop or for today's on-the-go generation.
During the planning, not only was the best possible product presentation considered, but also optimized workflows. Even after several visits, throughout the 270 m², you can always discover something new.
Bakery Burkard, Burgebrach
A picturesque ambiance
The old mill is grinding again! The Burgebracher mill was built in the 17th century, and then already operated 3 millstones for grinding grain. Even if it is not now for the grain, but for the freshly roasted coffee beans, the ancient walls of the Burgebracher mill have now been extensively renovated and expanded so that the bakery Burkhard with the feel-good café “ Alte Kornmühle” (Old Grain Mill) has found its home. Of course, there is a diverse selection of artisan baked goods. For example, the bakery offers a sumptuous breakfast menu and countless delicious snacks. All these products have found a place in AICHINGER’s ARTline counter. This offers the perfect technology for hot and cold products and thanks to the support free glass top, sets the products into the perfect light. In the rear wall area, the PANEVARI® bread rack was installed. Whether breads, baguettes or pretzels, the PANEVARI® bread rack is perfectly matched to enhance the products. In the seating area, an historical reference to the mill was picked up again with historical photos so that the freshly bakery goods can be enjoyed in this historic flair.
A Royal Atmosphere
Having breakfast between giant chandeliers and lots of gold? In the bakery boutique "Rundolfinchen" you can do just exactly that. Since the end of August this year, the fourth branch of the Bakery Rudolf in the center of Oberwart has been enchanting with "Rudolfinchen". The first-class AICHINGER ARTline counter with its support-free glass top has been perfectly integrated into the architectural expression of the building. The café offers all their guests a wide assortment of breads, pastries and tarts. In addition, the party snack "Rudolfinchen" is offered. The "Rudolfinchen" is a special pastry that is available either sweet or savory and is named after the bakery boutique. With 25 seats, the bakery provides space enough to fully enjoy the baked pastries. The high-quality materials and the extravagant, in-form design creates a royal atmosphere that could be handed over turnkey.
Krimmers Backstub, Untermuenkheim
Krimmers Backstub in Untermuenkheim has proven that this classic handcraft is still a trade in hand which finds gold in every land.
Actually, the Krimmer family had wanted to renew the store with the takeover. However, for financial reasons then, nothing came of it. After all, there were already two bakeries, a pre-baking station and a petrol station in Untermuenkheim. Through social networks, the Krimmer family then learned of AICHINGER. On the basis of AICHINGER’s variety of superbly designed and individual store concepts, the Krimmer family decided to go ahead with the reconstruction together with success consultant Daniel Schwarz. In execution of the concept, great care was taken to ensure that everything was perfectly in tune with the bakery’s product range and the location.
The 6.5 meter long ARTline counter was individually constructed with an exclusive glass top. Given the great amount of breads, a unique bread shelf was used. During the planning, not only the optimal presentation of goods was taken into consideration, but the storage space was also enlarged. Behind the counter there is now ten centimeters more space – which does not sound like much, but makes the work for the personnel much easier. To the old store with 36 m², a seating area of 30 m² was added. For this purpose, the former office was abandoned. And there was even room for a small winter garden annex.
Even after several visits to Krimmer’s Backstub, one always finds something new to discover. For example, a coat rack made out of rolling pins, the lampshades made out of baking pans or the bag rest in the form of a baker’s peel. And the customers are given a look into the bakery kitchen to watch the preparation of freshly baked goods.
Bakery Hink, St. Pölten
Loyalty to the craft
Out of a passion for working the dough; out of a loyalty to the real craft. This is the motto of Bakery Hink from St. Poelten. The long-standing baking tradition was first brought into life in 1986 by Alois Hink. With his son Florian, a successor was quickly found and who took over his parents’ business at an early age and has to this day, developed it into a successful enterprise with 25 employees. The bakery is not represented only in its own stores, but also in retail within a radius of 60 km of St. Poelten. In addition, there are numerous customers who are personally catered for with homemade delicacies by the Hink family. There is only the best to choose from which is also reflected in the quality and design of the new hospital café at the University Hospital St. Poelten. So that the baked goods can also be perfectly presented, the master baker relied entirely upon the know-how of the shop fitting specialist AICHINGER, who developed the fitting success concept for the Hink Bakery. The result is a fine bakery café with an impressive seating area and modern stylistic elements as a real eye-catcher.
Bakery Voncken, Kerkrade
The Dutch Art of Baking
The Bakery Voncken, with 19 specialist shops near the German border, has been cultivating its bread expertise for years and in the meantime has won many fans in Germany. Most recently, the Bakery Voncken opened a store in a shopping centre in Kerkrade. But they hadn’t been really happy there for a while. When the Voncken family was then offered an area for a café with 120m², they decided to make a move. Together with the support of AICHINGER, the Voncken family planned a new store concept. An important part of the store furnishings was of course, the new service counter. Here, a self-service area for packaged sliced bread was integrated. In addition, a closer look reveals that there is a notably wide selection on offer in the counter at the bakery. Thanks to the design of the AICHINGER ARTline counter, the small and fine pastries are in clear view. Firstly, the supports for the glass tops were moved back to behind the sales personnel. This allows the customer to enjoy a clear view of the products. Additionally, a part of the counter was designed as a warm area.
As far as the design in the seating area is concerned, not a thing was left to chance. For a comfortable atmosphere, a gas fireplace takes care of it.
Also, details such as the wooden or “heart wall” were selected from exclusive materials. The inviting atmosphere is only second to the decisive aspects of the quality of the products. All in all, years of shop fitting expertise go hand in hand with years of baking expertise.
Bäckerei Pfyl, Hausen am Albis
Bakery Café with an original flair
Bakery Pfyl in Hausen am Albis in Switzerland, which has a population of around 3,000, has enjoyed great, steadily increasing popularity, since 2004.
With the opening of the new store in the centre of Hausen, right next to the Postplatz, the new location can be described as a successful architectural jewel.
Beginning on the outside, the building with its red facade already attracts attention. Also inside, the finely classic store is convincing. Tempting confectionery and pastry products meet here in an impressively designed shop concept. The entire store, as well as the AICHINGER ARTline counter, consists for the most part out of real woods, creating a very harmonious picture. The special feature: with the help of the automatic retractable front panel, switching from full-operation to self- service mode becomes even easier. The free standing millstone in the middle of the service counter makes the entrance an absolute eye-catcher. Thanks to the high quality materials, the bakery accentuates both quality and naturalness. And an inviting seating area fits perfectly to the style of the store.
Schafbock- und Lebkuchenbäckerei Goldapfel
Perfectly filled gingerbread, individually formed ram cakes and elaborate creations of chocolates entice the onlookers into the new shop in the middle of Einsiedeln.
The Goldapfel is the first and the oldest Schafbock and gingerbread bakery in Switzerland. With more than 150 years of history, the company business is one of the most traditional in the country.
The location in the centre of Einsiedeln, directly on the square of the monastery is ideal for the shop and could be quickly implemented into action together with AICHINGER success consultant Gerold Längle and his team.
For more than 100 years, the so called "Schafböcke", "Lebkuchen" and "Kräpfli" have been made at the Goldapfel. A fine, homemade almond and hazelnut filling gives the baked products their own delicate taste. Originally these specialties were intended for pilgrims and those who traveled to Einsiedeln to visit the monastery. Today, pilgrims are no longer the main clientele. Most customers are Swiss, including many locals who bring these Einsiedler specialities as gifts. All of these delicacies now find their place in a unique counter unit from AICHINGER and are perfectly set into the scene with just the right lighting concept by the lighting experts at we-shoplight.
Traublingers Brotliebe, München
The Munich PEP Shopping Centre has been enriched by a gastronomic highlight since May: Whether it‘s a hearty or sweet breakfast, a healthy snack for lunch or a traditional coffee with cake in the afternoon – that’s exactly what is offered in the new Café Brotliebe from the traditional bakery Traublinger.
With a total of 25 outlets, Traublinger is one of Munich’s largest and most successful bakeries. Here you can count on the traditional bakery craft as well as innovative creativity.

This is also evident in the shop fittings in the new café. In close cooperation with success consultant Georg Oberloher and the Landshut Team, a store concept with a unique design was created. A highlight is the trees of light in the shopping centre which make the already light-filled café appear even more spacious and modern. The oval shaped special construction of our ARTline counter provides a harmonious and modern shop concept.
The first Dr. Oetker Café opens in Lucerne!
Ready-to-bake mixes, baking ingredients or pizzas: this is what Dr. Oetker, the well-known company for baking goods from East Westphalian Bielefeld, is famous for. In 40 different countries the brand products are sold. As a café, the company had not yet made an appearance. With the very first Dr.Oetker Café „Gugelhupf“ in the Neustadt of Lucerne, that’s exactly what has just happened.
In the new café, in addition to cakes and torts, bread and savoury meals are also served. What’s served on the premises is indeed fresh. Guests can even watch baking live. And if you like, you can also bake these delicacies at home. And: guests can also breakfast from morning to evening. Along with this broad variety of products is a distinctive shop design from AICHINGER. With elements of wood and a relaxed design, the shop suits Dr. Oetker’s philosophy perfectly. The café also offers seating for about 80 people. As of now, the crowds of people and the response have confirmed the success of the café.

Café Confiserie Craigher, Friesach
A chocolate paradise of the highest quality!
“When fine chocolate smoothly melts on the palate and the taste of harmoniously combined ingredients delicately unfolds, you will close your eyes and simply enjoy happiness.”
This is what chocolate manufacturer Craigher has stood for, for more than 100 years. With much love for the trade, the Craigher hand-crafted chocolates are made from high quality and natural ingredients from the region and choice cocoa beans from sustainable cultivation. Piece by piece these unique originals are created. The traditional confectionery was founded in 1914 in Carinthia. And it is here where it looks back on a long tradition. Carinthia’s first steam bakery was transformed into a coffee house with show production. After the Craigher family purchased a vacant neighboring building and connected it with the existing café, the building, together with specialists from AICHINGER, was extensively rebuilt. Over approx. 300 m² a sweet chocolate manufacturer – in Carinthia that is so far unique – came into being. Behind a large glass front, visitors can watch live how bars of chocolate are made. A real gourmet hotspot is the adjacent coffee house – here the premium products are set perfectly on stage. The entire counter balustrade was clad with the bark of an African fig tree and creates a visual highlight in the shop. The highest quality materials and an extravagant highly pronounced design provide a unique atmosphere.
Bakery Pfrommer & Butcher Holzinger, Bad Liebenzell
A perfect combination of bakery and butcher!
If you thought that a bakery and a butcher could not be combined, you should take a look at the bakery Pfrommer and the butcher Holzinger in Bad Liebenzell. The Team from AICHINGER’S planning office Ellhofen invested great passion and diligence in setting up the new branch. Over a sales area of approx. 80 m², since the new opening in the LIDL store, an inviting and modern combination of bakery and butcher awaits the customer.

Wuschels Backstub, Deckenpfronn
Bread. Fire. Passion.
For almost 30 years, Klaus „Wuschel“ Wunschick has been successfully managing the second generation of the Wuschel Bakery. Early on he developed an enthusiasm for “show bakeries” which is why he began his bakery apprenticeship in 1981 becoming one of the first in the region thereby turning his dream into reality. Today, the owner has 9 branches throughout Baden-Württemberg. The seductive aroma of pretzels, croissants and rolls is still the reason customers enjoy coming back again for a sense of well-being.

With the high quality lighting structures from we-shoplight, the room is both inviting and cozy. The result is a modern bakery which could be handed over turnkey.
Bakery Geier, Korneuburg
Purely Natural. Purely Geier.
This is a success story which began more than 100 years ago when Mathias Geier founded the business in Stillfried.

Bakery Hauer, St.Martin
Bakery Hauer – New building, new flair
A new impressive store concept in modern design was created in front of and behind the doors of the baker’s shop Hauer in St. Martin. Everyone worked very hard in order to finish the construction work on the brand-new building in time. Alois Hauer, the owner of the baker’s shop is very pleased to have taken the plunge to create new opportunities.

Olli´s Kronenbäckerei, Stuttgart
Planted, ground, baked!
OLLI’S Kronenbäckerei in Stuttgart now has a shop fitting which also suits its name. The former Kronenbäckerei Unrath developed a completely new store concept with the multi specialist AICHINGER.

BrotRock, Bad Segeberg
„Nothing’s normal for us…“
…is the maxima of the bakery BrotRock, which prepares its products completely without artificial flavourings, fats and flavour enhancers. In addition, the loaves are vegan and lactose-free and therefore agreeable for everyone. It was only last year that the Kohl family started with “Brot Rock” in Neumünster. The response was so overwhelming that they opened another branch together with our AICHINGER furnishing experts in Bad Segeberg. Starting with a three-dimensional bread shelf, an integrated Panevari module and a specially designed service counter with an angular – curved glass top a store concept was created which combines modern design with a special atmosphere and proven craftsmanship. Due to the combination of solid woods and state-of-the-art laminates, the store appears to be high-grade and contemporary. The illumination of the whole salesroom was created by the light specialists from we-shoplight.
We would like to thank the Kohl family for their confidence and wish them a successful future!
Confectionary Pöhl, Meran
The Sweet Heart of the South
In search of high-quality chocolates, artistically decorated cakes as well as delicious brioche, there is only one place in the heart of Merano. The confectionary offers home-made creations for breakfast, lunch and also snacks in the afternoon. Confectioners prepare everything freshly on a daily basis and in careful manual work for the customers. The attention to detail and the passion for handcraft becomes visible in every detail and turns the new site to the premier address at town. The new store concept does not only include the pastry shop and the confectionary but also a small café with 28 seats. The idea to offer this combination as of now had anchored in the heads of the owners Manuela and Christoph Pöhl rather quickly. However, the location and the size of the store area were not at all suitable for such a business. After a long search, the suitable premises were found in the centre of Merano.
The location in the centre of Kurstadt is ideally suited for this project which was quickly realized in cooperation with the AICHINGER success consultant Andreas Raab and his team. The major challenge was to also relocate the whole production from the previous location and to create a homogenous overall concept.

frischBack - Thüringer Blechkuchenhaus, Eisenach
The Thuringian artisan bakery
The Thuringian heart has always beaten for traditional sheet cakes. After all, it is the established products which give a good feeling and the taste of home to the customers. By conviction, the Thüringer Blechkuchenhaus buys all its raw materials from the region at the same time safeguarding local agricultural jobs. The Thuringian sheet cake is a cultural asset and that’s how it is backed and loved. Depending on the season, the assortment ranges from plum crumble cake to cherry quark cake with finest almond slivers. The Thüringer Blechkuchenhaus in Eisenach was built with exactly the same passion.
With the generous store space of 130 m², this shop concept offers quite a few things excepting boredom. The whole store design combines nostalgic and modern stylistic elements and gives a charming character to the Blechkuchenhaus. This unique design is also mirrored by the design of the ARTline counter. The column-free glass top, the individual front design and the high-quality materials offer the traditional sheet cake the perfect show stage right in front of the customer.
Bakery Lasser, Schladming
Bakery Lasser – We represent exceptional taste.
The story began with a small but nice leased bakery in Schladming in 1964. With its new types of bread and pastries, bakery Lasser became well known beyond Schlamding’s border and the constructing of new a business building was started. Due to the quick development of tourism and the resulting increased demand for bakery products another five stores were built in addition to the main store in Schladming. Today, with some 35 employees, bakery Lasser is one of the most innovative bakery plants and its branches are equipped according to the most modern product guidelines. Therefore, it was time to redesign the bakery and to increase the sales area of 80 m² by 10% in the course of the reconstruction. A newly designed portal can now be opened completely to the south, thus offering a smooth and barrier-free access to the outside terrace. The former office spaces were fully integrated into the new room concept in order to guarantee smooth proceedings in the rear preparation rooms. Interaction with people and close customer proximity are of the highest priority. Therefore, the redesigned toilet facility, which used to be located in the basement is now accessible.
A completely new addition to the product range is also the rich breakfast buffet which can be extended very easily to twice of the current size due to a foldable serving counter. At the outset, Heinz Lasser, the owner, was not really convinced of this expansion of the product range as he had doubts concerning economic efficiency. However, after only a few weeks all doubts vanished. According to Mr Lasser, the major success of this was that his employees had to take more care of the beverages and could handle frequency peaks without further employees.
The attractive ARTline sales counter made by AICHINGER is located at an exposed position right in the customers’ frame. Thanks to the unsupported glass top, nothing impairs the visibility of the presented products. Due to regional bonds to the Loden cloth, this robust fabric was used for covering the whole parapet of the counter, the bar, the wardrobe and the entire set of seats. The company logo at the front of the counter was originally embroidered by hand by the region’s largest Loden cloth producer. The reconstruction work, the materials used and the excellent lightning of the premises, which was provided by we-shoplight make the bakery Lasser to be a real treasure chest.
Handcrafted art of backing meets modern design!
Targeted cooperation is the best way for traditional backers to be able to resist the market pressure, which is exerted by industrially produced pastries, thought Karl Breu from Altdorf and Maximilian Oberprieler from Landshut. This idea has been then realised quickly and this is how BROTmacher was created on 1st May 2015. This “alliance” stands for handcrafted art of backing where all types of dough and dough pieces are produced on the basis of old family recipes. BROTmacher always has the right offer for lovers of handcrafted breads and pastries – particularly also for lovers of spelt – made of reginal ingredients. With the merger of both master bakers the product range was extended with focus on customer needs. From now on, handcrafted art of backing meets a wide variety of pastries and bread specialties.
In order to provide the appropriate sales presentation for the great products, the multi specialist from AICHINGER were certainly the only one to come into consideration for the newly opened store at Wittstraße in Landshut. A great café with outdoor seating and drive-in-counter was built with success consultant Georg Oberloher and his whole team. There is a lot to be discovered on generous 290 m². Contrasty seating with accents of colours, atmospheric light concept as well as the unique ARTline counter by AICHINGER. The frameless glass top does not offer only a perfect view of the presented goods but also suits the unique ambience at the salesroom. All combined stylistic elements perfectly fit into the store concept and thus creates a great feel-good atmosphere. Those who are in a hurry can simply use the drive-in-counter and will get the entire product range to go.

Country bakery Schmidt, Königstein
Exciting view behind the curtain
The metropolitan area of Dresden, Saxony, has another “transparent manufacture”: The country bakery Schmidt built a new bakehouse outside of the city of Königstein in the midst of a green environment. For its planning and realisation, especially for the integration of a shop café, Aichinger Advisor Steffen Pohl was asked for help already at the very start of the project.
The bakery and the salesroom are directly connected and only separated by slim barrier tape. In this way, curious customers can watch the baking process, or even have a chat with the bakers. Moreover, it is possible to take a round tour over the gallery and see the place in full view from above.
The new shop manages the balancing act between modern architecture and comfortable furnishings: Copper-coloured lights and opulent chandeliers fill the empty space below the high ceiling. Warm shades of wood and the colour yellow, which is also part of the bakery's corporate design, create a pleasant atmosphere with exciting accents. In the completely transparent ARTline counter, which features a dry and a refrigerated area, baked goods are presented in the most attractive way. And behind the counter, there is enough room to prepare all the goodies – from breakfasts and fresh snacks to hot and cold drinks.
