Business History

Meridian Business Sales are delighted to offer to the market this superb bakery business with 2 freehold retail premises which was established by our clients' family in 1939. The only reason this superb business is being offered to the market is due to our clients desire to take well deserved retirement. Since establishing the business our client has built up a wonderful reputation for the quality of their products and benefit from a high percentage of repeat and regular customers. We are advised of an annual turnover of 231,402 which is derived from the sale of bakery products which are produced on site and sold through 2 prominent high street retail units. The business offers any prospective purchaser the opportunity to increase turnover as our client does no external advertising and does not have a website. In addition the premises offer the opportunity to diversify the business and start outside catering services which our client also currently chooses not to pursue. This is a fantastic opportunity to purchase a long established family run business with an outstanding reputation and great scope for improvement and as such early viewing is strongly recommended as businesses of this calibre are rarely available.
