Hilton Smythe is delighted to welcome to the market this well-established butchers and greengrocer business, which is ideally located in Bilston in the West Midlands.
The business was originally established in 1975 and has been in our client’s careful ownership since 2001. Only now is the business being offered to the market, due to our client’s desire to concentrate on other business interests. The concern currently operates 6 days per week and generates a turnover in the region of £93,600 per annum, with a good gross profit.
Our client offers a wide variety of fresh meat and poultry, a selection of vegetables, dairy products, soft drinks and convenience items. The property offers just over 45 sq. Metres of floor space, is well maintained and fitted out to suit the trade. To the first floor is a one-bedroom flat, which is currently let out for £450 per month, which could continue for a new owner or be used as owners’ living accommodation.
The business has built up an excellent 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 offering a delivery service within the area. A new owner could also embark on a modest marketing campaign to highlight the goods and service offered. We feel the business would benefit from the launch of a website to promote the goods offered.
This is an excellent opportunity for a new owner to take this already busy business to the next level; therefore, early viewing must come highly recommended to avoid disappointment.
The Meat & Veg Centre occupies substantial two storey premises, ideally located within Bilston in the West Midlands. The property is situated on the busy Mount Pleasant and is surrounded by a wealth of complimentary shops and businesses, therefore, benefiting from a very high volume of footfall and passing trade. The business further benefits from good car parking facilities within the area.
