Hilton Smythe is delighted to welcome to the market Taylors of Cleveleys, an extremely well-established and popular traditional Bakery.

The bakery was established in 1947 by our clients’ parents, though our clients have thoroughly enjoyed running the business, they are now heading for their well-deserved retirement.

Taylors of Cleveleys operates 6 days per week and generates a turnover of £678,050 per annum, with high gross profit margins. The bakery is well known for the artisan bread, freshly baked from the Macadams oven which was installed in 2016 and featured in an editorial for the Lancashire magazine.

Our clients offer a variety of traditional bakery products including cakes, biscuits, pies and sandwiches.

The premises boast a well-equipped kitchen, service area, cake decoration room, packing area and large preparation area in the out building.

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.

At time of instruction The Bakery holds a 5 star google review rating with customers stating ‘Simply the best bakery, excellent pies and hotpot, catering service and delicious cakes, wouldn’t go anywhere else’ and ‘I got my wedding cake from here, just wanted to say thank you, it looked beautiful and tasted amazing’.

Our clients are offering a handover period to ensure the continued success of the business.

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.

The business has a comprehensive website.

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.
