Looking for quick sale.Development opportunity above the bakery. Hilton Smythe welcomes to the market Ellis's Bakery. This family run bakery was first established in 1958 and was taken over by our client in 1967. The owner is now looking to sell the bakery, due to the desire to take a well-deserved retirement. The business runs as a traditional bakery in a town centre location. The bakery offers an exceptional range of foods, this includes pasties, pies, fresh bread, cakes, biscuits and much more. A delivery service is available to the local area. Our clients can easily produce 300 pasties in an hour and around 300 baps or baguettes in 20 minutes. Ellis's Bakery generated an advised turnover of circa £119,000 as of the 2016 accounts, with a gross profit of 63%. Although this is a healthy turnover, we feel this figure could be increased. The purchaser could look to expand its delivery base to a more further afield, therefore boosting the customer base. Arranging contracts with local colleges and schools could further increase turnover. Included in the sale is the three-bedroom accommodation. This is a great space that would be ideal for a small family. The accommodation doesn’t yet have a kitchen, however if required this could easily be done. With a kitchen, the accommodation could be let out to generate an extra monthly income. There are no rates for this property. This is a fantastic opportunity that is not to be missed. The bakery would be an ideal purchase for a husband and wife team or partnership. Hilton Smythe highly advise early viewing to take in the full potential of the trade.
The business is run and managed by our client, with the help of a family member and a part time member of staff.
