Relocatable Sugar Craft Mould Manufacturer & Distributor
- Excellent reputation
- Loyal customer base
- Huge potential for growth
- Equipment included
- Low overhead costs
This is a unique opportunity to acquire a once flourishing sugar craft mould manufacturer, which ceased operating around 6 years ago. The business was establsihed in 1995 and was experiencing year-on-year growth, while gaining an excellent reputation and a loyal clientele.
The current owner acquired the business in 2017 with plans to relaunch the company. They are now looking to sell due to retirement and hope someone with experience in the cake decorating industry can maximise on the huge potential this business offers.
The company was founded by a pioneer of sugarcraft art and launched a range of cutters and veiners in the shape of leaves, butterflies, lilies, and orchids. Their rubber mould offering again proved highly popular. The business aimed to make it as easy as possible for customers to use their products.
The business had many wholesale clients across Europe and beyond. Previous customers include the kitchens of Buckingham Palace and the House of Commons. They were selling worldwide and were holding their own against competitors.
Previously, the company has completed exhibitions, sold online, and their products have been stocked by cake shops. The business comes with everything ready for a successful relaunch, including a ready-to-go website, YouTube tutorials, manufacturing guides, a well set-up Amazon shop, production machinery, and much more.
The business doesn’t currently have premises, which means this company is completely relocatable. This will provide the new owner with a great deal of flexibility. The buyer will need to find small premises for the business, to store the equipment and products.
All equipment will transfer over with the business sale, including 1 x minipack vacuum heat shrink wrap machine, 1 x minipress auto kiss cutter press, 1 x electric curing oven, 2 x vacuum tanks, 1 x vacuum pump, a large stock of printed backing boards, 380 x finished products (worth around £3k), 1 x wet burnishing machine, 1 x wall mounted electric mixer, 1 x auto heat sealer, and a large stock of chemicals (powder, colours, resin, mixers, etc).
The current owners are happy to provide a business handover, in order to ensure a smooth transition.
This would be the ideal opportunity for someone who has previous experience within the cake decorating industry.
The business is currently not trading, so there is huge potential for growth, as there is massive potential for the company to return to its former success. Previously, the company was flourishing and had many wholesale clients. With some targeted advertising and marketing, the business could easily thrive once again.
The business already has a successful website. It would be a great idea to continue optimising this platform. Finally, it may also be beneficial to develop some social media channels.
