Old Mill Bread Company transferred ownership on August 1st, 2014 thanks to the hard work of the CBI+Central Arkansas Team in Little Rock, Arkansas. Sellers Jim and Jeanie Berna founded Old Mill Bread Company over 25 years ago and developed it into a highly successful business. When they decided it was time to sell their company and retire they interviewed several business brokers and a law firm in hopes of finding the best. After doing their due diligence, Jim and Jeanie chose to sell their business through CBI+Central Arkansas because of “their knowledge about the industry and their persistence reaching out to business owners and buyers,” said Jim Berna.

CBI+Central Arkansas was able to confidentially list Old Mill Bread Co. and it it sold in less than three months, far better than the national average of 9-18 months it typically takes to sell a business through other brokerage firms.

Old Mill Bread Co. is a Little Rock favorite, having provided healthy scratch-baked artisan fresh breads and other bakery products for over 25 years. The Old Mill is also a popular lunch destination serving soups, salads, and signature sandwiches based on over 40 varieties of American hearth breads produced by Old Mill.  The Bakery/Café has received numerous accolades over the years from local press, and prides itself on being an integral part of the community donating thousands of dollars in products annually to local schools, charities, and civic organizations.
