Hilton Smythe welcomes to the market this busy Deli and sandwich business, occupying an attractive courtyard location, in the thriving village of Bishops Cleeve, which has an excellent reputation with many loyal clients and repeat business.

The business was established 8 years ago by the current owners who have built up a loyal customer base with a consistent turnover in excess of £80,000.

Only now is our client offering to the market to look towards other business interests.

They specialise in a range of delicious deli products to include:-

•Artisan bread
•Scotch eggs
•Pasta and much more

They also sell a range of sandwiches and rolls and make their own fudge, chocolate brownies, sausage rolls and quiche, together with the offer of a catering service on request. There is a small counter with 4 stools for customer seating, offering hot and cold drinks and sandwiches.

Using their Southern African heritage, they also have a niche South African section which includes top quality Biltong.

They have their own website which can be found at

They are active on Facebook and Twitter, with great 5-star reviews on Trip Advisor.

The business has a healthy turnover, at a level which suits the current owners, however, it would be easy to take the Deli to the next level, with longer opening hours, more advertising, making more of the small café area and driving the catering side of the business forward.

The business is offered with an extensive range of fixtures and fittings with viewing a must to appreciate the position and potential on offer. It is an ideal turnkey business, which will be up and running on day 1.

Offered at a Fantastic price for genuine sale.
