The iconic building will now undergo a complete refurbishment making way for a new concept coffee shop and bakery by Cakesmiths. The company is based in Bristol and has been established for over 10 years, currently supplying handmade cakes to independent retailers nationally.
The new site will be developed to include the company’s innovative kitchens and its offering will include fresh produce made onsite. The company is looking to launch as a new food hub in Bristol by April 2016.
Nicholas Calfe, Director at Christie & Co’s Bristol office comments: “With Cakesmiths’ delightful offering, we are confident that their first retail venture will be a success. An exciting and innovative concept, it is something the site has been craving for.
“The Bristol market is vibrant with a reputation for embracing new concepts and supporting independents, while continuing to attract more recognised chains and established regional group operators. Sites such as this will always be sought after by the regional group operator to the local independent, as well as first time buyers to the bar and restaurant market.”
