Our Story


H. Parish used to be in what was the Wanera Building in 1908 and in April 1912 he purchased the building where Nagels’ Sunrise Bakery is situated from a Mrs Cocking. Her clearing sale was held on April 13, 1912. Parish continue to run her business but with the addition of the baker/confectioner part. He closed the Wanera Inn part down in 1912.


Christopher Joseph (Joe) Johnson purchased the site on June 1, 1920 from H Parish. Johnson died of a severe stroke on November 9, 1956. His shop was demolished, rebuilt and opened on August 1, 1962 by K & J Stoodley. Keith Stoodley had operated from where Miles’ Newsagency is now from 1956 – 1958 and then in 1958 he purchased Johnsons and he moved there.

Fred Bryce took over from Keith Stoodley in June 1968. David and John Bryce took over from their father Fred Bryce in May 1981. James Nagel joined the partnership in 1984, and then purchased the property from David Bryce in 1985. The bakery shop was closed for ten years, due to the business expending and concentrating solely on wholesale. Supermarket chains state-wide and interstate were supplied during this period. After sixteen years together the partners decided to pursue their own interests. At this point in time Angaston didn’t have its own bakers shop, so consequently James and Angela Nagel decided to open Sunrise Bakery as a retail outlet once more in January 1991.
