Hilton Smythe is delighted to welcome to the market this well-established butchers/sandwich bar business in Sheffield, South Yorkshire.
The old established business has been in our client’s careful ownership for approximately 36 years and is only now being offered to the market due to our client’s desire for a well-deserved retirement. The business currently operates 6 days per week at a pace to suit our client and generates a turnover in the region of £130,000 per annum, with a good gross profit.
Our client offers a variety of both fresh and cooked meats, as well as a large selection of hot and cold sandwiches, including pork, beef, turkey, full breakfast sandwiches, pie and peas, breads and confectionery. The premises boasts a large sales and display area and is well-equipped to suit the trade.
The business has built up an enviable reputation within the area for the high quality of the goods and services 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 to take advantage of the late afternoon and early evening trade. There is also scope to offer outside catering facilities to the many businesses within the area, perhaps by offering a sandwich delivery service. A new owner could also embark on a modest marketing campaign to promote the goods and services offered.
This is an excellent opportunity for a new owner, perhaps a husband and wife team, to take this already thriving and profitable business to the next level; therefore early viewing must come highly recommended to avoid disappointment.
