A highly profitable sandwich delivery and retail business which has been established and successfully owner operated for many years. Operating from a great central freehold building but the business could be sold without the freehold premises. With five quality refrigerated vans which tour an established route together with retail sales. Cakes, bread and general baking is done from the premises which has been comprehensively equipped with ovens, dough mixers, proving ovens, prep table and refrigeration units. This profitable enterprise could easily complement an existing business and we the agents feel an expansion on the products on offer would greatly increase the already impressive turn-over. Early viewings are highly recommended.


This business occupies a great location in the heart of the year-round busy town of Taunton, Somerset which is within a densely populated area with a high pedestrian and vehicle passing traffic. Because of its unique location, all main arterial road links are easily accessed and on to the M5 motorway nearby. Also, conveniently situated with good local parking, bus route and a mainline railway only minutes away.


The business has been owner successfully operated for many years and has gradually over many years created a fine reputation for quality products and service and now only being placed on to the open market because of retirement. The vehicles used are high quality and a modern fleet which, have all been professionally sign written. However, we the agents feel the is tremendous opportunity to expand on the already impressive turn-over and actual trading accounts will be made available following a formal successful viewing.
