BUSINESS
Hilton Smythe welcomes to the market L Smith Bakers. The business has served the local community for over 60 years and has been owned by the owner for 40 years. The business has an excellent reputation for quality of goods and services in this location.

The bakery is well known for its excellent range of products, they sell sausage rolls, homemade pies with various fillings, bread baps and barms, fresh cut meats, hot breakfasts, a beautiful selection of cakes, tarts and sweets. As well as a variety of hot and cold drinks. The business is well known locally for its excellent pork pies. The bakery has a large amount of trade for lunches, due to its great location.

The business is currently generating an advised turnover of around 156,000 per annum, with a gross profit of 51%. This is a great turnover, however, we feel this could be increased further. The new owner could look to offer an outside catering service and delivery service, this would be a great extra to the bakery and would complement the trade well.

On the first floor there are currently two storage rooms. There is scope for the purchaser to convert the first floor into a flat, this could be let out for an extra monthly income.

This is a fantastic Freehold opportunity that is not to be missed. Hilton Smythe highly advise early viewing to take in the full potential of the trade.
