Hilton Smythe is proud to present to the market Pickles Delicatessen.
Pickles Delicatessen is a traditional deli which specialises in serving cooked meats, cheeses and pies, bacon and sausage which our client has an excellent reputation for. Specialist different cheeses which range from English and continental, olives and the shop has shelving to the side and rear which hold the Sarah Darlington specials jam pickles marmalade sauces and chutneys. At Christmas time the business also supplies cooked turkeys to the locals and is very well known for this service. The business has a five-star hygiene rating.
Our clients have owned Pickles from 2014 and now have reluctantly decided to sell due to making more time for family life. The business is also complete with a Facebook page which gets posted on daily with deals or new deliveries they have. We feel as though the business could introduce a website for the deli so that people who don’t have face book can go on the alternate site to see daily post and Pickles could also start a delivery service to those customers who can’t get as easily to the business. Pickles has a healthy turnover of circa £92,000 and a gross profit of 38%.
This is an excellent opportunity for a new owner to take this busy business to the next level; therefore, early viewing must come highly recommended to avoid disappointment.Location
