Hilton Smythe is delighted to welcome to the market this well-established and popular bakery business, ideally located within the town centre of Ferryhill, County Durham. The business was established in 1915 and has been in our clients careful ownership since 2013. Only now is the business being offered to the market due to our clients unfortunate health problems. The business operates 6 days per week and generates a turnover in the region of £130,000 per annum, with a gross profit of approximately 51%. The turnover is generated from the sale of a wide variety of fayre including breakfast buns, sandwiches, pies, pasties, Paninis, Artisan breads, jacket potatoes and soups, to name a few, as well as a variety of hot and cold beverages. Over 95% of the goods sold are baked freshly on the premises. The business boast a spacious sales area and well-equipped bakery. We feel there is scope to increase the turnover by extending the opening hours of the business, perhaps by opening on Sunday. A new owner could also embark on a modest marketing campaign to highlight the bakery or introduce deliveries to local businesses. There is also scope to expand the outside catering arm of the business. This is an excellent opportunity for a new owner to take this already thriving business to the next level; therefore early viewing must come highly recommended to avoid disappointment.
