⦁ Looking for quick sale.
⦁ Development opportunity above the bakery.

Hilton Smythe welcomes to the market Ellis's Bakery. This family run bakery was first established in 1958 and was taken over by our client in 1967. The owner is now looking to sell the bakery, due to the desire to take a well-deserved retirement.

The business runs as a traditional bakery in a town centre location. The bakery offers an exceptional range of foods, this includes pasties, pies, fresh bread, cakes, biscuits and much more. A delivery service is available to the local area.

Our clients can easily produce 300 pasties in an hour and around 300 baps or baguettes in 20 minutes.

Ellis's Bakery generated an advised turnover of circa 119,000 as of the 2016 accounts, with a gross profit of 63%. Although this is a healthy turnover, we feel this figure could be increased. The purchaser could look to expand its delivery base to a more further afield, therefore boosting the customer base. Arranging contracts with local colleges and schools could further increase turnover.

Included in the sale is the three-bedroom accommodation. This is a great space that would be ideal for a small family. The accommodation doesn't yet have a kitchen, however if required this could easily be done. With a kitchen, the accommodation could be let out to generate an extra monthly income. There are no rates for this property.

This is a fantastic opportunity that is not to be missed. The bakery would be an ideal purchase for a husband and wife team or partnership. Hilton Smythe highly advise early viewing to take in the full potential of the trade.

Ellis's Bakery is located in Tavistock, Devon.

The bakery is set on a main road in the town centre of Tavistock. The business is adjacent to plenty of other complimentary quirky independent businesses, such as hair salons, an antique store, takeaways, cafes, pubs, grocers and much more. This is a popular shopping location with both the locals and tourists, directly outside of the bakery is on street parking.

Tavistock is the largest market town in Devon, with a population of circa 12,280 as of the 2011 census. The town is a picturesque location with quaint village stores and a beautiful historic church. In 2005 Tavistock was voted 'Best Market Town in England'. The town was also a part of the Tour of Britain cycle race in 2010.

The town has good public transport with a bus stop within walking distance. The business is minutes away from the A386, an arterial A-road that runs from Bideford down to Plymouth.
