We are delighted to be appointed to formally bring to the market for the first time in 25 years this traditional high street bakery, which has been a mainstay of the town for many years more. Situated in a prime spot in the centre of the main route from the popular commuter and visitor station, leading down to the seafront it is ideally placed to capture the busy long tourist season, as well as serving their loyal local customers all year round.
If you are looking for a solid profitable business with an unquestionable proven track record then this one is well worth considering, especially if you enjoy being by the sea on the beautiful North Norfolk coast.
Given the many successful years that the business has been established in the town it is no surprise to note the excellent reputation that it has built up over this time. As well as the many locally residing customers that come in week in, week out, the business has served customers from all over the world, as far away as Australia, Japan and New York, who have subsequently ordered goods to be delivered to their relatives and friends. Tourists love the traditional style bakery and many make contact to request their favourites to be available for when they visit or to have delivered for when they return home. The bakery also supplies several loyal wholesale customers with new customers coming on each year.
The bakery is the only one in the area which still bakes everything on site, selling a large range of bread, traditional treats and savouries. Celebration cakes are also offered if requested but are not actively marketed.
Whilst continuingly enjoying a significant turnover and attractive profit margins for an owner operator there would of course be other areas that a new owner could look at to further drive up these figures. It would appear to offer good scope to develop a mail order side to the business as well as developing online sales. In addition one could further promote the wholesale service as well as introducing seasonal ranges and celebration cakes.
As stated the business is situated in the centre of Station Road being the main route into the heart of Sheringham, only a couple of minutes walk from both the station and the seafront. The property is narrow in width but extends quite some way back to the rear, in total measuring around 2.67m wide by 29.71 deep.
Set behind a glazed frontage onto the busy main road with a widow display and space outside to the front for the further display of the fine products available to buy. Stepping in to the retail area you will find built-in wooden shelving on a tiled floor with a range of other shelving, 2 bread slicers, 2 upright drinks fridges, microwave and till point.
The property continues through an open doorway to a preparation room with a Compacta 5 door oven, various stainless steel tables, a range of stainless steel baking trays and trolleys, as well as a bread prover, all on a vinyl floor.
Through again to a small kitchen room with a double stainless steel sink, stainless steel table, shelving and storage which then leads into a further small room with w.c to one side and a storage cupboard with sliding door to the other.
Next you come into the main preparation room with a tiled floor, 2 mixers, pastry roller, dough cutter, pastry break, doughnut fryer, a Compacta 3 door oven, plastic packing sealer, microwave, stainless steel work benches, under-counter fridge, stainless steel tall fridge, microwave, further trays and trolleys and a hand sink.
There is one final room to the rear of the building which contains 3 chest freezers, 1 tall fridge/freezer and a range of shelving.
