The business consists of two cafe units and some wholesale bakery produce which is sold in the shops. The wholesale part of the business also currently supplies local businesses with rolls and pies but could be extensively developed and there is potential room for growth in external catering. The owners are looking to relocate to England and have decided to put the business on the market.

The current owner commented, "Baking for You has been in our family for the last 45 years and it has been with great pleasure the business has been passed down to me and operated by my family for such a long time.  It was first started by my father and handed down to the latest generation of bakers. I wish a successful purchaser the very best in this extremely well-run business."

Blair Smith, business agent at Christie & Co’s Glasgow Office is handling the sale of the business and comments, “Both cafés have a loyal customer base and benefit hugely from being prominently placed on main thoroughfares for passing trade and local custom. The business currently runs part managed but could benefit from an owner operator to maximise profits. The sale presents itself as a fantastic opportunity for an experienced baker or catering business wishing to expand in a thriving market.

"There is further potential to extend the product range and increase trade by offering gluten free and specialist artisan breads and cakes. This is a fantastic opportunity for a new owner to expand on a well performing bakery business."

Christie & Co is seeking offers of £615,000 for the freehold of both businesses.
