Hilton Smythe are delighted to welcome to the market this well-established and very popular bakery business in Cheshire.
The business was established by our client’s family in 1965 and is only now, reluctantly, being offered to the market due to our client’s desire for a well-deserved retirement. The business operates 6 days per week and generates a turnover in the region of £172,000 per annum, with an excellent gross profit.
Our client offers a wide variety of goods, all of which are freshly baked on the premises including a selection of breads, pies, sausage rolls, steak & kidney slices, cheese & onion slices, freshly prepared sandwiches, cakes and pastries, as well as a good selection of convenience items and hot & cold beverages.
The bakery boasts an enviable reputation within the area for the high quality of the goods and services offered, as well as being famous for their meat & potato pies, which has resulted in a very loyal client base, with a vast amount of repeat trade and word of mouth recommendations.
The bakery boasts a large sales and display area, half dedicated to the freshly prepared goods and half to convenience items, frozen and chilled goods. To the first floor is a 2 bedroom flat, which could be used as owners’ accommodation or let out to generate further income.
We feel there is scope to increase the turnover by extending the range of products available and perhaps introducing a delivery service to local businesses. The business already has an impressive and informative website in place to promote the business and the excellent goods offered.
This is a wonderful opportunity to acquire a well-established and busy bakery business with good scope for growth; therefore early viewing must come highly recommended to avoid disappointment.Location
