Property description

Price includes stock and van

business

Hilton Smythe is delighted to welcome to the market this well-established and very popular florist business in Hertfordshire.

The business was established by our client in 2003 and is only now being offered to the market due to our client’s desire to take semi-retirement. The business currently operates 5 days per week.

Our client offers a wide range of floral designs for weddings, funerals and special occasions, as well as cut flowers, dried flowers, silk flowers, plants, vases and accessories. Our client also offers a varied range of gifts & gift cards and is an Interflora agent.

The business has built up an enviable reputation within the area for the high quality of the goods and service offered, which has resulted in a very loyal client base, with a high volume of repeat trade and word of mouth recommendations.

We feel there is scope to increase the turnover by extending the opening hours, perhaps by opening on Wednesdays, as the business is currently closed on this day. A new owner could also embark on a modest marketing campaign to promote the goods and services offered. The business already has a very informative website in place, which incorporates online ordering facilities.

This is an excellent opportunity for a new owner to take this already thriving business to the next level; therefore early viewing must come highly recommended to avoid disappointment.

The property is surrounded by a wealth of complimentary shops and businesses, therefore benefiting from a high volume of footfall and passing trade.
