Hilton Smythe are delighted to bring to the market a fantastic opportunity to purchase a well-established, long standing traditional bakery business with its own bakehouse, retail outlet and commercial supply business.

Greenfern Bakery has been under the careful and meticulous ownership of our client for over 24 years and has grown the business year on year to an impressive level with turnover and profit levels growing steadily.

It is only now that the business has been placed on the open market as it’s our clients desire to take well-earned retirement after many successful years of trading and they would like to see the business pass to someone who would continue to build the business and ensure its continued success.

The popular business is renowned as an excellent bakery and produces its own baked goods on a daily basis including:

• Handmade sandwiches
• Ready meals
• Hot food
• Salads
• Cakes
• Confectionary

All this has led to an enviable reputation with many loyal repeat customers within the local area. All the produce is made in its own onsite craft bakehouse with most of it being sold through its highly popular retail premises.

The business further benefits from a thriving wholesale side and provides catering solutions for the likes of Aberdeen Royal Infirmary coffee shops, TWMA (oil & gas) Doorsteps Catering, as well as supplying many retail shops & newsagents within the city.

Greenfern bakery is also very experienced in providing outside catering & corporate catering for events.

There is scope to increase turnover with additional opening hours of the retail side of the business and expanding some of the retail lines currently produced along with the possible undertaking of a robust marketing campaign to highlight the products & services available.

This is an outstanding, well run business which offers a new owner the opportunity to take this already thriving business to the next level.

Very rarely do businesses of this calibre come to the open market therefore, early viewing must come highly recommended to avoid disappointment
