Project Description

Ref: GAT2085

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

Established in 2012, ChocoCake is very popular with Wimborne residents, as well as the large number of year-round visitors to the town.  Recent investment in enhancing the manufacturing areas, together with a new website incorporating e-commerce, means that ChocoCake’s famous cakes and brownies can now be enjoyed nationwide.

All of the cakes, tray bakes, cookies and assorted sweet treats are 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 celebrating everything from birthdays to retirement, with the skilled bakers and decorators able to adapt the cakes to just about any theme requested.

The business complements its cakes by selling a range of artisanal chocolates, Purbeck ice cream and locally sourced tea, coffee and hot chocolate.  Whilst most drinks are purchased to take away, there is a small area at the front of the shop where customers can enjoy their drinks – and cakes – on the premises.

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 has been 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.
