Pullman Singapore Pte Ltd/ Tachihara Coffee


Pullman Bakery (previously known as Tachihara Bakery) first started in 1978 in Enbetsu town of Teshio Province in Hokkaido. Mrs. Tachihara Sumiko (Director) had a passion for baking homemade breads during her free time, so she decided to set up a bakery.

The bakery received an overwhelming response from its customers after it opened. Mr. Tachihara Kazuomi (Chairman of Pullman Bakery) decided to quit his job to hone his baking skills in Tokyo before joining her to manage the bakery. The following year, they opened their second shop in Haboro Town.

In 1986, both Mr. and Mrs. Tachihara decided upon sharing their delicious breads with even more people. With that in mind, they set up a new bakery branch named “Pullman Bakery” in Sapporo, City of Hokkaido.

With strong competition from other establishments, they placed all their efforts into research, aiming to bake more delicious bread for their customers. This caused the business to gain popularity and eventually become reputable among its customers which led them to be interviewed by Sapporo’s Television and Radio Media.

In year 1995 to 1996, Mr. Tachihara Kazuomi was invited to participate in the Japan’s Bun Championship from the popular Tokyo television programme, “TV Champion” and he won for two consecutive years.

It was Pullman Bakery's very first time participating in the Hokkaido Fair at Shinjuku Isetan Main Branch's, which proved to be a resounding success. Ever since then, they were honored to be invited to participate in Hokkaido Fair Japan in all major departmental stores’ annually.

In recent years, Pullman Bakery has also gathered the support from overseas, with invitations to participate Hokkaido Fairs held in foreign countries like America, Hong Kong, Thailand and even Singapore.
