5561 — Well-Established Scratch-Based Bakery & Custom Cake Company

This acquisition opportunity is an established scratch-based bakery with a solid custom cake business known as a community gathering place in the neighborhood. The Company was founded in 2007 by the original owners as a custom cake shop. Over time, the Company evolved from a bakery specializing in custom cakes into a thriving bakery and cafe offering a variety of freshly prepared items and other services. Bringing their passion for food and a strong business acumen, the current owners purchased the business in 2017 and have successfully sustained and grown this well-known neighborhood institution over the last 5 years. During this time, the owners have increased sales annually except for the first couple of months of the pandemic shutdown. Sales continue to grow through 2022 in large part to capturing attention of customers over the last two years. In addition to custom cakes, the Company makes a wide variety of pastries in house for retail sale. They serve breakfast and lunch daily and have a full coffee bar with drip and espresso-based drinks with coffee beans roasted onsite. They provide a catering option and frozen pre-prepared meals. Additionally, they serve ice cream, have a liquor license allowing them to sell beer & wine and offer a variety of merchandise for retail sale including candles, party supplies and “shwag”. There is a culture created by the community and the staff that makes customers want to visit. The outlook for the Company is excellent. The business has been operating for over 15 years and their brand and reputation have been deeply established in the community. There are numerous ways to increase business volume including expanding production capacity, implementing a comprehensive marking plan and expanding food and menu offers. This is an excellent acquisition opportunity that will not stay on the market for long. The current ownership is ready to pursue other opportunities and looks forward to facilitating the transition to new ownership that will take this well established Company to the next level and maintain the legacy that has been established over the last 15 years. SBA financing is available.

The Company is designed to be a comfortable inviting place where customers can relax and enjoy quality food. The historical commercial space has high ceilings, exposed ducting and an inviting wood motif. It offers booths, tables and outdoor seating weather permitting. The store is tastefully decorated and bright and well lit. The 2,000 square feet of space is located on the corner of a brick strip mall on a well travelled and trafficked street.

The business thrived during the Covid 19 pandemic and is positioned for continued success as it has a well-established customer base, is financially strong and has very good growth potential. This is an excellent acquisition opportunity for a financially qualified Purchaser with food service background and restaurant experience.

The outlook for the Company is excellent. The business has been operating for over 15 years and their brand and reputation have been deeply established. People will always eat out. Younger generations are much less inclined to prepare food for themselves and rely largely on restaurants or prepared food vendors to sustain themselves. Celebrations will always happen, and food is culturally a centerpiece of those celebrations.
