Business Description
Business
Hilton Smythe are delighted to bring to the market a fantastic opportunity to purchase a well-established, long standing traditional bakery business with its own bakehouse and separate retail outlet.

Ramage The bakers has been under the careful and meticulous ownership of our client for over 35 years and who has grown the business year on year to an impressive level with turnover and profit levels growing steadily. It is only now that the business has been placed on the open market as its our clients desire to take well earned retirement after many successful years of trading and they would like to see the business pass to someone who would continue to build the business and ensure its continued success.

Ramage The Bakers is renowned as an excellent bakery and produces on a daily basis its own, Bread rolls, Homemade, pies, Sausage, rolls, also a fantastic selection of cakes.

All this has led to an enviable reputation with many loyal repeat customers within the local area. All the produce is made from its own craft bakehouse premises with the majority of it being sold through its highly popular separate retail premises.

There is scope to increase turnover with:-

• Additional opening hours of the retail side of the business
• Expanding some of the retail lines currently produced
• Undertaking of a robust marketing campaign
• Introduction of a dedicated website to highlight the produce & services offered by the business
• Expand the commercial side of the business to offer wholesale bakery produce for hotels, cafes and smaller food outlets
• Delivery service
• outside event catering service

This is an outstanding, well run business which offers a new owner the opportunity to take this already thriving business to the next level.

Very rarely do businesses of this calibre come to the open market therefore, early viewing must come highly recommended to avoid disappointment
