Break for mums in May

Break for mums in May

You could be forgiven for doing a double take as you pass your local Muffin Break store this May.

The national premium bakery-café chain is renaming its stores to ‘Mother’s Break’ in celebration of the contributions mums make to family life.

The rebrand is rolling out nationally and is part of Muffin Break’s wider movement to make mums feel special and take time for themselves this Mother’s Day.

“Some time out over a coffee and a muffin can be just the tonic for busy mums,” says Gemma Fitzsimons, Muffin Break marketing manager. “We simply want to acknowledge the roles they play in keeping the family running smoothly by giving mums the opportunity to take just a few moments to themselves during the month.”

To encourage family to spend time with their mums this Mother’s Day, Muffin Break stores are for a limited time offering a special deal for customers of two muffins and two signature blend coffees for $12*.

And as part of the chain’s Mother’s Day programme, from April 21 Muffin Break is helping its loyalty club members say thanks to their mums by offering a free Mother’s Day greeting card service.

The cards can be ordered online from 22 April to 1 May and Muffin Break is promising to deliver them in time for Mother’s Day on May 10.
