Corporate sales, still very strong in a discerning market place..

For the past five years EM&F have been the sole agents for Cooks The Bakery Ltd in the sale of 70 of their sandwich bars & coffee shops across the country. From Dover to Durham and from Ipswich to Exeter, EM&F have been successfully finding buyers – often first-time business buyers – who have recognised the rare opportunity in purchasing a Cooks store. And there are 15 stores still available including shops in Kent, Devon, Essex, Worcestershire and Merseyside.

So what is special about buying a Cooks store? Michael Taylor, national co-ordinator for corporate sales at EM&F comments: “Usually, the stores are extensively equipped and in prime high-street trading positions. Whilst no formal accounts are available, we can supply comprehensive management information including weekly trading figures, often going back two or three years. Supplier chains are already in place which buyers can continue with and, last but not least, the stores are usually very keenly priced.” Contact your local EM&F office to see if there is a Cooks store available in your area.

With a nationwide network of 18 offices, a comprehensive marketing package and a “hands-on” approach to the sale process, EM&F was the natural choice for Cooks The Bakery when they were selecting a partner to handle their business sales. Richard Prime, Managing Director of Cooks The Bakery Ltd recognises the key role that EM&F has played in their branch disposal programme: “Cooks The Bakery have used EM&F exclusively for all disposals over the last 5 years. Their function has primarily been to find buyers, but the work after the initial deal has been struck is just as important; for many purchasers it is the first time they have bought a business having made a lifestyle choice to be their own boss and they often need help getting through the process.

EM&F have demonstrated an excellent understanding of our business.” If you wish to discuss corporate branch disposals, please contactMichael Taylor at EM&F Head Office on 01404 813762.
