Project Description

Ref: GAT2080

Cake, chocolate and coffee…….what’s not to like!

Gator Business Sales is pleased to offer for sale this distinctive business located in Wimborne Minster, one of East Dorset’s most attractive and affluent towns.

Established in 2012, ChocoCake is popular with local Wimborne residents, many of whom are regular customers, as well as the large number of year-round visitors to the area.

The business is particularly well known for its extensive selection of cakes, tray bakes, and assorted sweet treats, all handmade on the premises using the very best local ingredients wherever possible. Celebration cakes are an important source of revenue, and ChocoCake undertakes in excess of 450 individual commissions per year. The shop is also well known as an artisanal chocolatier, and offers a range of fresh chocolates alongside slabs, bars, seasonal and gift items.

Complementing the cakes and chocolate is a compact, but very attractive, café area which showcases the store-made baked goods, together with locally sourced tea and coffee, hot chocolate (of course!), milkshakes, and Purbeck ice cream, all available to eat in or take away.

5 star FSA hygiene rating.

Attractive professionally designed website incorporating e-commerce.

Exceptionally well equipped with quality fixtures and fittings throughout.

This is a great opportunity to purchase a well-established business with lots of growth potential. ChocoCake is currently operated predominantly under management due to the vendors’ other non-competing business interests, and would certainly benefit from more focused hands-on ownership.

Please note that the vendors have requested that no direct approach should be made to them or the staff of this business, and all requests for information need to be made via Gator Business Sales.
