Property description

Business
Love Cake Supplies was founded by the current owner in 2013 and has been a real labour of love which has seen the business grow year on year into the thriving business that it is now. The business is being sold albeit very reluctantly and with a heavy heart only so the owner can pursue his other business interests.

Love Cake Supplies is the place to visit for cake supply needs. Whether the customer is a novice or expert cake maker the business stocks a wide range of products such as sugar paste, marzipan, cake boards and boxes, ribbons, cake mixes, sprinkles, figurines mounds and cutters.

Additionally the business specialises in custom cakes and also hires out baking tins, stands and trays. Edible photo printing is also available and proving popular.

The business enjoys great visibility on the internet and has its own Facebook page with nearly 5000 likes and Twitter page.

Scope to improve
1.Advertising and marketing campaign
2.Maximise the use of social media

Hilton Smythe highly advise early viewing to avoid disappointment. This business is likely to attract considerable interest.

Location
Love Cake Supplies is located in Cotteridge, Birmingham in the West Midlands.

Cotteridge is an area of Birmingham and is part of the Bournville ward. It is located about 4.5 miles south of Birmingham City Centre. The shopping centre in which the business is situated contains a mixture of local shops, eateries and national brands.

The A441 (Pershore Road), one of the major routes into Birmingham City centre, runs through Cotteridge, giving a relatively quick road link to places further afield such as Redditch. Cotteridge is also served by Kings Norton Railway Station which is on the Cross-City line, a major commuter route into Birmingham. Many buses run through Cotteridge daily.

Love Cake Supplies is ideally situated alongside other complimentary retail businesses in a main road position and in the heart of the unusually busy and vibrant Cotteridge shopping centre. The business is well presented and maintained with clear visible signage and striking livery and benefits from extremely high footfall and passing trade. There is free on street parking within easy walking distance of the premises.
