Freehold Traditional Bakery in Leigh Town Centre
Leigh, Greater Manchester
Ref: 14095 D
Hilton Smythe is delighted to welcome to the market R E & J Parker Bakers, an extremely well-established and popular traditional Bakery in Leigh, Lancashire. R E & J Parker Bakers has been established for over 40 years. Our clients have enjoyed their time at the bakery and are now looking to retire. Our client offers a variety of traditional bakery products including cakes, biscuits, pies and sandwiches. The business has built up an enviable reputation within the area for the high quality of the products and services offered, which has resulted in a very loyal client base, with a high volume of repeat trade and word of mouth recommendations. The Bakery also boasts a 4.5 star rating on Google reviews. The premises boast a well-equipped bakery, shop floor and finishing room. The owners currently use the first floor for storage; this could be converted into a flat with the right planning consent. We feel there is scope to increase the turnover. A new owner could introduce a delivery service to local businesses and embark on a modest marketing campaign to promote the goods offered. The business would further benefit from the launch of a website and social media to advertise the business. This is an excellent opportunity for a new owner to take this already thriving business with growth potential to the next level; therefore, early viewing must come highly recommended.
The business reports a turnover for 2016 of approximately £130,000.
The business is owner managed and currently has 3-part time staff members.
Current opening hours: - Monday – Friday: 8:30 – 16.00 Saturday: 8.30 – 15.30 Sunday: Closed
