Hilton Smythe is delighted to welcome to the market this well-established bakery business in Soham, Cambridgeshire. The business was established in the 1920`s and has been in our client`s careful ownership since 1981. Only now is the business being offered to the market due to our client`s wish to take well-deserved retirement. The business generates a turnover in the region of £215,000, with a gross profit of approximately 62%. The turnover is derived from the sale of freshly baked breads, cakes, sandwiches and filled rolls, as well as hot and cold beverages. Our client also makes celebration cakes for all occasions.
The business has an excellent reputation within the area for the quality and freshness of the produce available, which has developed a very loyal customer base and a vast amount of repeat trade. The property boasts a spacious sales area and a well-equipped preparation and baking area. We feel the turnover could be further increased by embarking on a small marketing campaign to promote the business further.
There is scope to offer a delivery service to the local area and extend on the commercial clients side. We feel the business would benefit from the launch of a website to advertise the business and the products available. The property benefits from a two bedroom flat to the first floor, which is currently let out to generate further income, but could be utilised as owners` accommodation, should a new owner desire. This is an excellent opportunity for a new owner to take this already thriving and well-established business to the next level; therefore early viewing must come highly recommended to avoid disappointment.
