Property description

Business
Hilton Smythe is delighted to welcome to the market this well-established and popular butchers business in Sheerness, on the Isle of Sheppey in Kent. The business was established in approximately 1975 and has been in our clients careful ownership since 2011. Only now is the business being offered to the market due to our clients desire for a well-earned retirement. The business operates 6 days per week and generates a turnover in the region of £134,000 per annum, with a good gross profit.

The turnover is generated from the sale of fresh, high quality meats, which includes beef, lamb, pork, chicken etc. Our client has recently started to offer freshly made pies, pasties and sausage rolls, which has proved very popular within the area, soft drinks are also available. We feel the turnover could be increased by embarking on a small marketing campaign to highlight the excellent high quality goods and service offered.

A new owner could also establish a website for the business to further promote the services. The business has built up an excellent reputation within the area, which has resulted in a very loyal client base, with a lot of repeat custom and word of mouth referrals. The premises are well-equipped to suit the trade, boasting a spacious sales area. This is an excellent opportunity for a new owner to take this already thriving and popular business to the next level; therefore early viewing must come highly recommended.
