Shepherd instructed to sell fourth-generation retail and wholesale bakery in Ayr and Prestwick

The Electric Bakery

Shepherd Chartered Surveyors has been instructed to sell a fourth-generation retail and wholesale bakery business in Ayr and Prestwick.

The Electric Bakery has two shops in Ayr as well as a bakery and third shop in Prestwick with a customer base encompassing the three Ayrshire counties and beyond.

Established by the Murray family in 1929, the current owners of the business are seeking to retire and have therefore decided to place it on the market.

The sale will include the trading name of The Electric Bakery which is a well-known and established brand throughout the three Ayrshire counties.

Shepherd Partner Kevin Bell said: “The Electric Bakery is a renowned brand familiar to generations of shoppers throughout Ayrshire and beyond, and a thriving business with rising income and substantial annual profits generated.

“With local retail markets picking up as a result of consumers shopping closer to home through the pandemic, we believe the business offers genuine growth potential in both the retail and wholesale sectors”.

David Murray, the current owner, added: “Our family business has for four generations served a loyal and expanding customer base and, due to my impending retirement, now is the time to put up for sale what is an excellent profitable business.”

Offers in excess of £500,000 are invited. Interested parties should contact the sole selling agent on 01292 267987.
