‘Tractor Boy’ baguette proves a hit
TWO out-of-work brothers-in-law have clubbed together to create a sandwich sensation.
Ryan Smith and brittle bones sufferer Donovan Edwards, both 27, decided to go into business themselves after they were unable to find a job.
The duo came up with the idea of creating Bernie Lee’s, a hot baguette, sandwich and coffee shop in Queen Street, Ipswich.
Donovan got in touch with the Prince’s Trust who put him on a business course, and the pair came up with a business plan.
One of their best-sellers is a hot baguette called the Tractor Boy, in honour of Ipswich Town FC, containing pork, locally-made cheese and apple chutney. They also offer a range of other freshly-made roast meat sandwiches.
