West Cornwall Pasty Co

An offering from Cornwall which opened its doors on the M4 beside Upper Crust, West Cornwall Pasty Co was introduced to Reading in early 2011 as part of a trial to replace Upper Crust, a leftover from Moto's former owners. West Cornwall Pasty Co has been around for a long time concentrating on stores at railway stations, and now has chosen to enter the motorway services sector.
The curious thing is that West Cornwall Pasty Co is a throwback to an idea from some of the oldest services. Before the days where the majority of customers would pop by only for the toilets, crowded services would sell snacks from the outside of the building to stop the restaurant overflowing. This is exactly what West Cornwall Pasty Co has been introduced to do.
During late 2016 and early 2017, Rontec started introducing West Cornwall Pasty Co cabinets into their filling stations.
West Cornwall Pasty Co are now rebranding some of their sites to 'West Cornwall Food Co' and are offering a selection of sandwiches and cakes as well the usual offer of Cornish pastries. The first motorway site to get this branding was at Folkestone in April 2017.
