C. Kunzle Ltd. Garretts Green Lane Birmingham

 by Voltman , Fri Mar 05, 2010 12:22 pm

I know almost nothing about Kunzles Cake and so have started this thread in the hope of collecting some sort of finite history of the company.
My girlfriends Mother used to work there and so did SBs, I believe.
I got the company name from a 1960 Planning application to erect an Illuminated Factory Sign.

They were on the Garretts Green Industrial Estate, I think they preceded Chad Valley, a car company? and HRS in their use of the prominent building facing Blakenhale Road.
They made cakes called Showboats, which were small chocolate cups filled with a variety of cake concoctions. I can sometimes recall the taste and smell of these even though I was still in short trousers at the time.

And that's about it....... Please help.

Where did they come from? Where did they go to? What happened to them?
