Property description

Business
Hilton Smythe welcomes to the market Shepherds Butchers Ltd. The butchers was originally established in this location in 1963. Our client has worked at the butchers since 1976 and took over in 2000. This is a well-established business that boasts an exceptional reputation for its high-quality meats and friendly service. The owner now looks to sell the store, due to the desire to take a well-deserved retirement.

The business runs as a traditional butchers specialising in their homemade sausages, burgers, pies and sandwiches. Hot and cold food is served daily, this includes sandwiches with salad, chicken wings, burgers, soups and hot and cold drinks.

Shepherds Butchers Ltd generated a healthy turnover of circa £200,000 as of the 2016 accounts, with a gross profit of 37%. This is a healthy turnover with huge scope to further increase this figure. The purchaser should look to expand on the sandwich and takeaway service trade, and possibly introduce a breakfast and takeaway menu.

The business already has a Facebook page, this is regularly updated and boasts over 190 followers.

The butchers would be an ideal purchase for a husband and wife team or partnership. All equipment is included in the sale and the business comes ready to run. 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 trade.
