Bread& is a start-up artisan baker creating high-quality products. They instructed JK to find a production area within the geographic area of Tyneside to Teesside, that met the food hygiene requirements at a reasonable cost.
The supply of industrial units of less than 1000 ft.² was limited to three units across the whole region but none could be adapted to meet the food hygiene requirements within budget. JK considered the challenges and identified a unit fitted out as a laboratory that could be adapted at a reasonable cost. Terms for a lease were negotiated at a fair market rent.
"From instruction to completion of lease took three months, with a saving from the asking rent and softer lease terms to help a start-up company, including the cost of adaption being met by the landlord."

This left the tenant to concentrate on the acquisition and fitting out of equipment for its trade.
“JK Property Consultants helped us in our search as a new business to find the best possible premises and location in which to set up our artisan bakery. There was a scarcity of small units fit for the food hygiene needs. Their knowledge of the availability of units, and the help and guidance given, enabled us to find suitable premises from which to grow and thrive through a very challenging economic climate”
