Business Description
Hilton Smythe are delighted to present to the market a much-loved family bakers and sandwich shop business established in the area in the 1980s. Our client is now looking to pass the business on due to family commitments. The business includes a 1 x bedroomed flat to the first floor which includes a newly modernised kitchen/shower room.

Smith’s Bakery attracts a healthy mix of tradesmen/builders, local families, local schoolteachers and other business owners. We are advised the business is split 50% Filled sandwiches/baguettes, 30% Hot pasties/ savouries and 20% Cakes/Bread (All baked goods are made fresh on site).

Majority of the sales are taken from walk in takeaway customers including 12 wholesale customers, located within 5 miles of the business.

The bakery offers:

  • Morning goods, rolls, freshly made cakes, breads and biscuits

  • Filled rolls and baguettes, crisps, cold drinks and coffees

  • Hot sandwiches, breakfast rolls, pasties, sausage rolls

  • Wholesale customers order fresh breads and rolls, particularly popular are the freshly made brioche buns.

We are advised the business is particularly busy in the winter months with a 2nd uplift at Easter.

Currently run as a takeaway led business only, we advise any new owner to consider adding a sit-down cafe. There is a storage building located to the left of the shop which could be converted as well as a large garden space to the rear of the property.

Any new owner could increase the wholesale trade by increasing the current number of delivery customers by adding a 24-hour baking cycle.

Business of this standard and area rarely come onto the open market and we advise early viewing to avoid disappointment.
