Business Description
Hilton Smythe is delighted to welcome to the market Peters Bakery, an extremely popular traditional bakery and sandwich shop located in Manchester.

The building has been a bakery since the 1930’s, and in the hands of our clients for almost 40 years.

During the time our clients have ran the shop he has built up an excellent reputation and a strong rapport with the locals and regulars, our clients are offering a hand over period to show the new buyer the ropes should they require.

The bakery currently offers a variety of traditional bakery products including specialty bread, cakes, pies, as well as a large breakfast and sandwich menu.

The business has an excellent reputation locally and further a field with customer reviews stating
‘I live around 10 miles away and travel as often as I can to Peter's for their delicious bread’ and ‘Lovely bacon and egg barm and coffee, great value and friendly staff.’

The premises boast a huge, well-equipped bakery and shop floor, total size in the region of 193 m2 with a 3 bed flat above, which could be used as living accommodation.

The bakery operates 6 days per week and generates a turnover in the region of £180,000 per annum, with a gross profit in the region of 33%.

We feel there is scope to increase the turnover. A new owner could push the delivery service to local businesses and embark on a modest marketing campaign to promote the goods offered.

There is huge potential to extend the wholesale side of the business, due to the size of the bakery and the equipment installed.
The business would further benefit from the launch of a website and social media to advertise the business on a larger scale.

This is an excellent opportunity for a new owner to take this already thriving business with growth potential to the next level; therefore, early viewing must come highly recommended.
