Blacks Brokers are delighted to bring to the market this exceptional leasehold Artisan Chocolate Shop operating from this impressive building in Ripon.
The Artisan Chocolate Shop has been trading at 3 The Arcade East, Ripon since 2014 and over that time it has firmly established itself with an enviable reputation and a large and loyal client base. The business is only being offered for sale due to the current owners’ other business commitments and therefore this business has now become available as a leasehold retail only proposition. The location itself is a prestigious one in Ripon centre. The business is solely supplied by The Little Chocolate Shop factory in Leyburn and product supply will continue under contract. The business is located in a pedestrianised area of the city behind the main city square. Set behind major high street shops such as Dorothy Perkins and W H Smiths, it is situated in a very busy arcade which connects to the main square and is adjacent to the main Sainsbury's car park. In essence, the business could not be better positioned. Over its trading history the business has developed a reputation for fine chocolate and customers are both local and from the surrounding areas. Additionally, the shop has a scoop ice cream freezer offering a renowned local ice cream.
Externally the business has a dramatic entrance and once inside the attention to detail to the display fitments is tremendous. The beautifully presented shop area creates an exquisite first impression and is in keeping with the product on sale. The design and finish are second to none and clearly this fully air-conditioned shop has been fitted with a ‘no expense spared’ attitude. Currently, the shop is open from 10:00 until 16:30 between Tuesday and Saturday each week.
The business provides a gross profit of 40% and offers a new owner the opportunity to build on the product sales to increase turnover. This is an exceptional opportunity to operate a retail store under a recognised and highly respected name. The business offers plenty of scope for a new owner to enjoy whilst also provides the security of a name that has an enviable reputation in the area. Early viewings are advised as a speedy completion is anticipated.
