Business Description

Hilton Smythe welcomes to the market Gornalls Bakery Ltd. The business was originally established in the 1920’s and has been a great gem in the area. Our clients took over the business in 1998 and has thoroughly enjoyed running this highly profitable business. The owners are now looking to sell, due to the desire to take a well-deserved retirement.

The business runs as a traditional bakery selling a range of delicious products. They sell quality homemade breads, cakes, pasties, pies and sausage rolls. The bakery has a fantastic reputation for its products and great service. The business also offers an outside catering service for functions such as funerals, parties, weddings and christenings. All of the products sold are freshly baked on site daily.

The bakery is currently generating an advised turnover of around £337,000 per annum with a gross profit of 65%. This is a fantastic turnover that could be increased by introducing a website. The catering side of the business could highly benefit from this. They could advertise buffet menus and could also take enquiries via the site. We are advised that the bakery receives orders from all over the UK, so a website would be a great way of reaching these customers.

This truly is an exception bakery that receives a huge amount of trade from repeat loyal customers. This is a fantastic opportunity for a husband and wife team with experience in this trade. Hilton Smythe highly advise early viewing.
