Tenure: Leasehold

Hilton Smythe is delighted to introduce to the market Bakers Best Ltd. This exceptional bakery is supported by two complimentary retail outlets.

Bakers Best Ltd offers a fantastic range of daily freshly baked produce including a fine selection of breads, tempting pastries, delicious cakes, Indian savouries, traditional savouries and a wide selection of sandwiches with various fillings.

The business generates revenue through the two retail outlets. In addition 50% of turnover is created via wholesale trade to local businesses within Bedford and Cambridge. We believe with an injection of marketing the whole sale arm of the business could be expanded.

The business was originally founded in 1970 and has been successfully run and managed by our clients since 2004 and comes to the market due to our client's early retirement. This highly profitable business is very well respected with an established loyal client base and benefits from much repeat trade, passing trade and word of mouth referrals.

Included in the sale price is a full inventory of quality equipment, delivery van and 2 refrigerated vans.

We urge early viewing of this highly profitable walk in trading business opportunity.

Bakers Best Ltd currently operates from two town centre locations.

The bakery is at the rear of one of retail outlets in the thriving commuter town of St Noets in Cambridgeshire. The business is ideally located within the town centre ensuring heavy footfall and benefiting from ample car parking within the vicinity.

Counter server with cake and bread displays, serve over chiller glass counter, sandwich filling station, menu boards to walls, ecr, drinks chiller and bread slicer.

To the rear is a store area, sink, chiller, electric hob and toilet facilities.

The bakery is to the rear of the retail outlet in St Neots with equipment including 5 deck bakers oven, bun moulder, bdm, fridges, freezers, store area and other catering tools.

We are advised leasehold.

The original lease length is 15 years with 7 years remaining. Rent is 26,000 for both premises.

The business opens:- Monday to Saturday 8.00am - 5.00pm Sunday closed
The business is owner run and managed with the assistance of 10 members of staff included 4 evening staff.
