Hilton Smythe welcomes to the market this popular family run business venture. The Bread Shop was originally founded by our clients, a successful mother and son partnership in 2000.
The business has seen year on year growth to the successful business it is today, reporting a healthy turnover of circa £98,000 for 2017 with a gross profit of circa 50%.
The Bread Shop offers daily freshly baked produce including a range of breads. The business operates as a sandwich shop offering eat in or take away breakfasts sandwiches, hot and cold lunches included homemade soups and a wide variety of pastries. The shop provides seating for approximately 8 covers internally with an additional 8 covers externally in the warmer months. The business has a nice selection of home-made fudge, marmalade, jams and chutneys on display and available to purchase. The sandwich shop boasts a 5 star food hygiene rating.
We believe the business still has scope for development, certainly a new owner would benefit from introducing a website and having a presence on social media to promote the assets of the business to new customers. The business could also open later or start trading on Sundays to generate additional income.
This is a lovely business in a great location which genuinely comes to the market as our clients wish to pursue other business interests.
