Peters is a British bakery chain.


It was founded by Peter Knowles in 1966 with its first branch at Belmont in Durham; it now has 71 branches across north east England.[1]

Its principal competitors are the Newcastle based Greggs who maintain branches in the same area.

In 2004 its production plant at Durham was destroyed in a large fire forcing production to move to temporary accommodation in Peterlee until September 2005 when a new £9 million facility was opened on the same site.[2]
