Business Hilton Smythe welcomes to the market Fresh Farm Produce. This traditional, family run and long established Greengrocers has been successfully run by our client since 2005.
Originally founded back in the 1960’s the business is very well supported by local residents seeing a high amount of repeat trade. The store is very well stocked and appealing to the eye with a wide variety of fresh produce clearly displayed throughout. Outside there are colourful displays of the fruit and vegetables highly visible to passing trade.
As per the 2015 accounts the business generated a handsome turnover of circa £143,000 with a gross profit of 33%.
Although clearly thriving, we believe the business would benefit from having a presence on social media, a cheap way to advertise the business to new custom. Product lines could also be extended by possibly adding a deli range, hampers, smoothies or flowers.
Early viewing of this outstanding business in this prime trading location is highly recommended, with the business genuinely coming to the market as our client wishes to pursue other business opportunities.
