Falcon Commercial is delighted to offer for sale this well presented Bakers with hugely popular sandwich delivery service which calls on all parts of Taunton, Bridgwater and Wellington. It has been under the proud ownership of our client since 1969 during which time they have made considerable investment and improvements to reflect changing markets over the years. It is now being offered for sale as the owners wish to retire. During our client’s stewardship the business has built up an excellent reputation for its gorgeous bakery products, fantastic sandwiches along with a great range of additional products.

Barry The Bakers enjoys a central trading position in Taunton. The good sized shop and bakery is used as the production base where the bread and other bakery products are baked. It is also where the sandwiches are prepared. From here each day the 5 delivery vans deliver to customers throughout Taunton and other nearby towns often at their place of work.

Barry The Bakers is run by our clients with help from a dedicated team of approximately 15 members of staff. It generates a turnover in the region of £373,000 per year with healthy gross profit margins. There is tremendous potential to increase the turnover possibly by running a modest marketing campaign, expanding the delivery area, growing the outside catering part of the business or even offering a wholesale service to other shops in the local area.

This rarely available opportunity is not to be missed and early negotiations with Falcon Commercial come highly recommended.
