Property description

Business
Offers over £49,950

Hilton Smythe is delighted to welcome to the market this well-established and busy cake baking, decorating and sugercraft business, which is ideally located within Sale, Greater Manchester.

Our client originally opened their first shop just a few doors away from their present larger premises, and have become an established business over the last 15 years under our client’s careful ownership. Only now is the business being offered to the market due to our client’s desire for a well-deserved retirement. The business currently operates 4½ days per week and generates a turnover in the region of £100,000 per annum, with a gross profit of approximately 50%.

Our client offers a wide variety of celebration cakes, wedding cakes, birthday cakes, novelty cakes, cupcake and sugercraft equipment and baking supplies, to name a few. The premises boast 157 sq. Metres of floor space, with the main sales and display area and preparation area to the ground floor. The lower ground floor has a large commercial kitchen and preparation area.

The business has very limited competition and has built up an enviable reputation within the area and further afield for the very high quality of the goods and services offered, which has resulted in a very loyal client base, with a high volume of repeat trade and word of mouth recommendations.

We feel there is scope to increase the turnover by extending the opening hours. A new owner could also embark on a modest marketing campaign to highlight the excellent services offered. Our client also offers cake decorating classes to both adults and children. The business utilises social media, with a page on Facebook, with further information and photos.

This is an excellent opportunity for a new owner to take this already thriving business to the next level; therefore, early viewing must come highly recommended to avoid disappointment.

Location
Top Tier Cakes occupies substantial ground floor premises, ideally located within the town of Sale in Greater Manchester.
