A bakery that employs grandmas and grandpas in Germany is giving retired people a chance to supplement their pensions with some extra cash while also making new friends in the kitchen.

Kuchentratsch bakery in Munich is the brain child of Katharina Mayer, who used money raised from crowdfunding campaigns, loans and grants, to open the business in April 2017, Today reported.

The start-up may resemble a normal bakery from the outside but once a person steps inside Kuchentratsch, they are transported back to a childhood where grandma spent hours in the kitchen baking up delicious home-made goods.

This homely feel is exactly what Mayer was aiming for.

“I started by asking myself, ‘Where can you get a really good piece of cake?’ But I always got the best cake at my own granny’s,” she told The Local.

Mayer decided to open a bakery that not only served the best old-fashioned, traditional cakes in town, but also offered retired people the opportunity to earn an additional income working part time in her kitchen.

Now there are 35 pensioner-bakers currently working at Kuchentratsch, serving up delightful treats to the customers and preparing pastries for several Munich cafes, The Courant reported.

“I love to bake,” 77-year-old Rosemarie Rottmann told The Local. “It’s not worth it on your own, though. Now at least I can do some baking.”

Rottman travels an hour and a half to get to the bakery – a trip which she has been making since May last year and one she is more than happy to make.

Her dedication echoes that of the other grandmas and grandpas, who are happy to work under flexible conditions that allow them to decide how many hours and days they want to work, Today noted.
