Paignton Bakery in the English Riviera is being sold.

The bakery in Torbay, South Devon has been under the same ownership since 2006 and the couple is now retiring but offering a training and handover period to the new operators.

The bakery is well-known for its selection of homemade cakes, breads, hot and cold sandwiches and pastries. Many are distributed to local businesses including schools, cafés and pubs.

Christie + Co is handling the sale. “This business would ideally suit buyers with a keen interest and experience in food who would enjoy becoming an integral part of the local community,” said Jonathan Southgate of the Exeter office. “Alternatively, it offers an attractive proposition for anyone seeking a lifestyle business opportunity away from city life.”
