Hilton Smythe welcomes to the market JF & J Settle, which is currently trading as Settle's Bakery. This bakery was originally established by our client in 1966. The business has an exceptional reputation in this area for its great quality products and services provided. The owner is now looking to sell the bakery, due to the desire to take a well-deserved retirement.

The business runs as a bakery, sandwich shop and convenience store. The store sells an excellent variety of products. This includes hot breakfasts, freshly made sandwiches, cakes, pies, confectionery, soft drinks, Rijo coffee, alcohol and cigarettes. Our client also offers an outside catering service; this has proven to be very popular and has a great reputation.

This is a popular store within the local community as well as football fans and passing trade.

The business is currently generated an advised turnover of around 138,000 as of the 2015 accounts, with a gross profit of 45%. This is a healthy turnover that we feel could be increased slightly. Although this business has an exceptional reputation in the area, we feel with a business website there could be more custom from further afield. The internet is a great way of marketing a business.

The outside catering side of the business is a great asset. This is a highly complementary service that should be expanded. Social media sites such as Facebook and Twitter are cost effective ways of marketing a business.

A leasehold option is available for 45,000 + SAV, a new lease is to be agreed.

Included in the sale is a self-contained two-bedroom owner's accommodation. This is a great sized flat that is currently let out for an extra monthly income. The new owner could continue to rent this space, if not required. The flat may also be a perfect home for a husband and wife team, who are looking to relocate to this location.

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.
