Hilton Smythe is delighted to welcome to the market Grange Bakery, an extremely well-established and popular traditional Bakery, operating from 3 busy locations in Cumbria.

Grange Bakery was originally established in 1911 and has been under the ownership of our clients since 2008, only now is the business coming to the market due to retirement.

The main Bakery, located in Grange Over Sands operates 6 days per week. The bakery is well known for their hand crafted traditional bread freshly baked from the 80-year-old Edwardian gas-fired trap oven. The bakery supply’s its own shops plus 5 local retailers as well as approximately 50 wholesale customers.

Our client offers a variety of traditional bakery products including cakes, biscuits, pies and sandwiches.

The premises boast a well-equipped bakery on the lower ground, with the ground floor being the retail shop.

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

The Bakery holds a 5 star google review rating with customers stating ‘Always have a good variety of breads, cakes & pies. Staff very chatty & welcoming. Love Local’ and ‘Delicious bread, scrummy pies’ Our client is offering a handover period to ensure the continued success of the business

The 3 shops and main bakery are fully staffed, each with their own manager; therefore, the purchaser doesn’t necessarily need to be a baker, but would benefit from organization and management skills.

We feel there is scope to increase the turnover. A new owner could increase the wholesale side of the business and embark on a modest marketing campaign to promote the goods offered.

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


Offered for sale is the 100% Share Capital in the limited company on a debt free, cash free basis
