Business Hilton Smythe welcomes to the market The Cake Kabin, which opened in its current location in 2010. The business was however established several years before. Our client is now retiring, hence the sale of this well-established business, which is primarily renowned for its fantastic range of bespoke, and traditional cakes for all occasions.
The cakes are freshly baked in the 5-star hygiene rated first floor catering facilities, which are located directly above the show room area which sells a vast array of baking supplies, equipment, cake decorations, helium balloons and party decorations.
Although there is a website The Cake Kabin could benefit from an uplift in marketing as the owner has decreased the hours the shop is open and no longer does outside catering, which added an extra 5% to the turnover only 4 years ago.
Hilton Smythe highly advise early viewing to avoid disappointment.
