Property description

Business
Hilton Smythe welcomes to the market Save On Meats. This is a historic butchers originally established over 100 years ago. The business boasts an exceptional reputation in this residential location, benefitting from a generous amount of repeat loyal trade and further benefits from tourist trade. Our client took over the butchers in 2009 and is now looking to sell the business, due to the desire to take a well-deserved retirement.

The business has maintained its reputation over the years for its high quality of goods and services available. The butchers offer an excellent range of fresh meats, as well as providing a range of fresh fruit and vegetables, stock, chutneys, pickles, gravy and sauces.

Our client offers deliveries and supplies local business with fresh meats. Trade is split 50% retail and 50% local business trade.

Save On Meats is situated in a prime trading location operating 6 days a week. We are advised the business generated a turnover in the region of £301,000 as of the 2015 accounts, with a gross profit of 17%. This is a healthy turnover with scope to be increased. The purchaser could look into extending opening hours and expand the contract base with local businesses. Torquay is filled with Guest Houses, restaurants, pubs and schools. Arranging contracts to supply fresh meats and vegetables to these businesses could massively improve income. A catering service could also be something the purchaser considers.

The butchers would be an ideal purchase for a husband and wife team or partnership; looking to run a fast paced, long established butcher’s business. This is a fantastic opportunity that is not to be missed. Hilton Smythe highly advise early viewing to take in the full potential of the business.
