Hilton Smythe welcomes to the market an exciting opportunity to acquire an exceptionally well run and performing specialist cake making business with an excellent reputation along with a strong and consistent brand.

The business has only now come to the open market as it’s our clients desire to retire. The business has been under the careful and meticulous ownership of our client since 1989 when Classic Cakes was first established and has grown the business year on year to an impressive level growing steadily with many loyal and repeat customers.

Classic Cakes offers a bespoke cake design and manufacture service for all occasions. Each cake is made to the customers own design, and they can make it in any shape, colour, and flavour. They supply cakes for Birthdays, Christenings, Weddings, Communions, Christmas and supply cakes for corporate clients as well.

Classic Cakes have been selling small cakes for a number of years including Cupcakes, Rocky Roads, and our ever so popular Cornflake Squares!

The sale of the business includes some of the following equiptment/maachinery -

  • new signage
  • refrigerated serve over counter

Classic Cakes continues to grow and has accounts with Just Eat, Uber Eats and Deliveroo. During the pandemic, the owners took them offline and havent put them back online yet. 

Over the years they have become a well-known, well sort-after cake shop creating edible masterpieces for thousands of customers including many famous faces including singers, footballers, actors and many more!

We feel that there is scope to increase turnover and take the business to the next level by undertaking in: -

  • A robust marketing campaign to generate new contracts and orders
  • Expansion of the workforce to help accommodate new and ongoing contracts
  • Revised operating hours
  • Do alot more online and expanding the items sold. 
The business trades on its reputation for quality and service and has outstanding future possibilities. It would potentially be an ideal acquisition to some similar sized or a larger enterprise looking to increase its position and presence within the industry. A tremendous opportunity to own this turnkey business, and early enquiries must come highly recommended to avoid disappointment.
