Hilton Smythe is pleased to have been given the opportunity to manage the sale of The Cake Room Bridgnorth which is a well-established cake decorating and partyware store, as well as a successful sugar craft school, that also supplies bespoke cakes with a renowned reputation amongst residents. This is a superb opportunity to take on a popular local business in an area teeming with customers.
The Cake Room was founded by the current owner and has traded from the current premises for the last five years. The business has been a real labour of love for the vendor and has accrued many regular customers with a burgeoning reputation and has made many cakes for local people and businesses, along with famous celebrities, as well as being chosen to make a seventieth birthday cake for HRH the Prince of Wales.
This lovely business is being sold due to a wish to take a well-earned retirement. The vendor is keen to see her beloved cake business pass to an ambitious and entrepreneurial new owner who can take it to the next level. The business will be suitable for any baking business such as brownies, chocolates or general baking supplies.
The Cake Room provides bespoke wedding and celebration cakes, runs classes for budding cake decorators at all levels, and supplies a wide range of cake decorating supplies as well as balloons and partyware.
