The West Country Deli has been trading for circa 4 years. The Deli has grown year on year and built a strong local trade which is reflected in the turnover of the business. Due to other professional commitments, the Deli is now largely operated by staff with the owners overseeing the day-to-day running of the business. The Deli is operated on a year round basis, closing for a short period in January for redecoration and deep cleaning. The business is strong throughout the year, peaking in the summer months and again at Christmas. The trading hours are unrestricted, but are currently operated as 9.00am - 5.00pm on Monday to Saturday and 10.00am - 4.00pm on Sunday. Staff include one full time and 2 part time members with extra staff employed to assist at weekends and during the holidays.
The turnover for the year ending April 2017 was circa £168,000 with an impressive net profit figure. There is the opportunity to increase the turnover of the business further by building on the areas of the business the current owners have not developed to their full potential.
The premises are held on a 10 year lease from 2013 at a current rent of £15,000 with 5 yearly rent reviews. The tenant is responsible for the shop front and the internal repair of the premises plus a percentage of the overall maintenance and building insurance.
The premises are connected to mains drainage, water and electricity.
