Bakewell Bakery has been trading on Sturdee Avenue since 2015 and over that time it has firmly established itself within the local community. The business has gained a large and loyal customer base and an excellent reputation.


Location


Gillingham is a large, densely populated town in Kent. The business is located within the town centre, close to many other complementary businesses and shops. The area is well linked by the M2 and A2 with great public transport links and plenty of town centre parking available.

Building layout and design


Bakewell Bakery is housed within the ground floor of a large, mid-terraced retail unit with glazed frontage and branding displayed above. To the front on the business is a small forecourt area with table and chairs for customer use.
Inside, the main shop floor is well presented and organised, with two glass fronted display counters and food preparation areas behind. Drinks and other food goods are stocked in display fridges. To the rear of the main servery area is an additional preparation room with fridges, freezers, ovens and other well maintained equipment. Toilet, office and staff room are all separate and private. All areas are well presented and finished to a good standard with quality fixtures, fittings and equipment in place.

Financial details


Financial details are available upon a viewing of the business and Bakewell Bakery has traded solidly over its trading history. The business generates weekly takings of £2,115 and there are no rates payable for this property. Most customers are from the local area as one would expect, with some additional trade from passers-by and visitors to the area.


Summary


This leasehold business offers a new owner a superb opportunity to continue to drive a relatively new business forward, yet with a customer base, 5* hygiene rating and great reputation already in place. There is plenty of scope to develop the business further and there are even more income opportunities with the addition of delivery rounds, additional outside catering and occasion cake trading. This proposition would ideally suit an owner operating team who could push the business forward and build upon the solid and impressive trading foundations, or may be of interest to a similar business looking to expand into this popular and much sought-after area of Kent. Early viewings are strongly advised. Business: £9,995.
