Hilton Smythe welcomes Charles Bread Ltd to the market.

Charles Bread Ltd has been established since 2016 and during that time our clients have grown the business considerably.

Specialising in Danish baking, Charles Bread Ltd offers an array of organic freshly baked breads and pastries such as Cinnamon buns, rye bread, almond Danish, choki Danish and olive focaccia to name a few.

The business comes with two premises, the shop which is located along Lower Clapton Road and the bakery which is located in the Arches of Ponsford Street. From the Arches premises, Charles Bread Ltd also offers delivery of wholesale bread and pastries to cafes, restaurants, pubs, grocery stores and shops within the local area.

Our clients also offer bakery classes which take place at the weekend where people can come along to the Arches premises and enjoy a full day hands-on workshop, introducing the key principles of making and baking healthy and nutritious sourdough bread, and Nordic inspired pastries.

The current owners are now looking to sell the business due to the desire to pursue other business opportunities.
