Hilton Smythe welcomes to the market an exciting opportunity to acquire an exceptionally well run and performing, “turnkey” bakery, Post Office and cafe business with an excellent local reputation associated with this popular and well-established business.
The business has only now come to the open market as it is our clients desire to leave the industry and enjoy a more relaxed pace of life.
Baker’s Dozen has been under the careful and meticulous ownership of our client for over 20 years and has grown the business to an impressive level with many happy and loyal returning local customers, with the Post Office a real hub within the local village community.
The business prides itself in offering freshly baked goods on a retail basis along with providing baked produce for the wholesale market, which can be ordered on a regular basis or a one-off wholesale basis which is ideal for restaurants, bars, and clubs. In addition, the business has been awarded a five-star food hygiene award from the Foods Standards Agency, reinforcing the quality of produce available from the business. Within the premises, there is also the popular village Post Office that offers a full range of postal services and is very well used by the local community.
A new owner could also take advantage of the café facilities and promote this to help increase turnover for the business.
We feel that there is tremendous scope to increase the already impressive turnover and take the business to the next level by undertaking a robust localised marketing campaign to generate new wholesale bakery orders, along with the possible expansion of the workforce to help accommodate new and ongoing contracts. There is also scope to utilise the current company website and social media platforms to help further promote the business as well.
