This bakery is designed and arranged for detailed volume production to serve a wide variety of clients including convention and event centers, major hotel chains, cafes and restaurants, catering companies, food distributors and grocery stores.
The facility itself is impeccable with high open ceilings and first-rate lighting that pours through the western wall of floor-to-ceiling windows.
Mechanically automated processing has been incorporated at strategic points in the production process for maximally efficient output, while the finishing work is still completed by hand to ensure quality at a professional level.
Depending on specialty and focus, each production room is equipped with modern ovens, sheeters, depositors, glazing machines, Trulsen stand up reach-ins, walk in freezers and refrigerators, wash stations and separate centralized dry storage.
The Café is a well-planned and smartly used 500 sf space. Access is available to the café directly from the street for clients, and immediately from the bakery production floor for staff. Along with its spaciously high ceilings, the café presents to patrons a stainless-steel cold case, retail counter, coffee and espresso equipment, all complimented by a cozy number of tables and chairs.
A standard-sized dock with a roll-up door is used for incoming materials and goods, as well as for quickly loading outgoing deliveries.
Currently, the business is staffed to cover 2 shifts per day, with space to expand to a third shift.
Staff and owners currently have medical, dental, vision and profit sharing.
The current owner occupies the role of pastry chef, creating and delivering roughly 120 to 130 custom cakes a year.
This turn-key business stands out as one of the best appointed and designed bakeries in the Bay Area and is a must-see for a buyer who is looking to either expand their current business into the commercial space, or an entrepreneur looking for an opportunity to jump into the industry as a major player in the local industry.
