The owner has operated the bakery as a passion business since its' inception, and is now retiring. There are two obvious directions to take it. Option #1 is to take their great product and embrace some business technology, and bring it into the modern era. Revamp the website, optimize for good search and implement online ordering, Despite being all 5 stars, there are only 15 online reviews. Also, there is bare minimum social media presence; neither Instagram nor Pinterest, and few Facebook followers. And for gosh sakes' market! With a solid starting base, further develop & expand the local coffee shop & specialty market. Option #2 is to bring your own concept to this location; the buildout is ideal for catering.
Either way, this wholesale/retail gift box bakery company is a great start: a product with fantastic margins, a low rent location, and in a highly desirable part of South OC. At this price, the listing won't last long; contact your Agent today.
