Business Description
Hilton Smythe is delighted to welcome to the market this well-established and popular Bakery business, ideally located within the town centre of Ferryhill, County Durham.

The business was established in 1915 and has been in our clients careful ownership since 2016. Only now is the business being offered to the market due to our clients desire to retire.

The business operates 7 days per week and generates a turnover in the region of £156,000 per annum, with a gross profit of approximately 66%.

The turnover is generated from the sale of a wide variety of fayre including:

• Breakfast buns
• Sandwiches
• Pies
• Pasties
• Panini's
• Artisan breads
• Jacket potatoes
• Soups
• Hot and cold beverages

Over 95% of the goods sold are baked freshly on the premises.

The business boasts a spacious sales area and well-equipped newly re-tiled bakery.

We feel there is scope to increase the turnover by extending the opening hours of the business. A new owner could also embark on a modest marketing campaign to highlight the bakery or introduce deliveries to local businesses. There is also scope to expand the outside catering arm of the business.

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