Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Bruce and Co. are delighted to offer to the market this well presented patisserie which has been under our client's very caring ownership for the past 11 years. Our clients are offering the business to the market due to their impending wish to retire. The business has been successfully established in the local area and the current owners have invested in the property to make sure it was fully operational by carrying out substantial refurbishments and installing equipment to a high standard throughout. The business enjoys a strong reputation within the local community and as such has a high level of regular and repeat trade along with high footfall due to its position in the tourist town of Oban. Our clients inform us that turnover is of a steady pace and is derived from a popular hot & cold food menu catering for breakfast service, lunch and snacks with fresh and home produced breads, cakes, soups, quiches and sandwich fillings. Although the business currently trades well, the turnover could be significantly improved by extending opening hours and increasing marketing and advertising.
