Now available to the market is this longstanding bakery in a well-populated village in Kent.

Since 1985, the business has been operating as a cornerstone of the local community, supplying the village with a wide range of freshy baked goods either through its concrete premises or popular external catering service.

With minimal competition in the area, a base of returning customers and a good online presence, a new owner could easily excel the business upon taking over.

Supplying a wide range of freshly baked bread, pastries, cakes, pasties and sandwiches, the bakery is visited by a regular customer base daily who favour them for their high quality goods and friendly customer service. The bakery also offers a catering service, supplying small buffets for business meetings or events for any occasion.

Operations run from a sizeable, well-equipped shop with a glass frontage letting passers-by see produce for sale. Upon entry, a serving counter is directly ahead, which displays products in a glass cabinet. Beyond is a kitchen and prep room complete with ovens and all necessary equipment. There is also an office and toilet for the use of staff, as well as a 2 bedroom flat upstairs. All equipment will be included in the sale; an inventory will be provided by the owner.

Marketing is carried out through a website which outlines the company’s history, ethos and their trade supplying and catering side of the business.

This is a great opportunity to take on an established, profitable bakery which has an excellent village location and unrivalled reputation in the area.

Perfect for an experienced professional baker looking for a lucrative, well-established business complete with great contacts and a brilliant team of staff, a new owner would be able to take steps to grow the business further.

Increasing opening hours and investing in additional marketing through social media would allow the business to gain fantastic levels of exposure and entice new customers. Reaching out to local businesses who may require their catering services would also help grow the bakery.

The current owner would be willing to stay on for a transition period to hand the business over to its new owner.
