Hilton Smythe welcomes to the market Hilliers Butchers. The business was originally established by our client in 2011. The butchers has been a great success and sees a generous amount of repeat trade daily. The owner is now looking to sell the business due to relocation and the desire to take a well-deserved retirement.
The business runs as a traditional butchers selling a fantastic range of products. They offer raw meat, pastries such as pies and pasties all of which are homemade at the store. The shop also sell fresh fruit and veg, deli produce and filled rolls and baguettes. The owner offers a local delivery service in the sign written van.
The delivery service is very popular and is available within a 5 mile radius. Orders can be placed in store or via the business website. www.hilliersbutchers.co.uk This site is fantastic and has a great range of information. The site promotes offers, special promotions and news.
We are advised the current turnover for the business is around £282,000 per annum with a gross profit of 29% as per 2015 accounts. This is an exceptional turnover, however, we feel this could be increased with the introduction of an outside catering service. The business has an outstanding reputation and we feel this would be a very popular arm to the business.
The business has a generous amount of repeat loyal trade, we are advised trade is split 80% retail and 20% commercial. This is great but the new owner should look to increase the commercial side.
The butchers is run from a tidy well-presented property. There was a full refit just 5 years ago, so the premise looks relatively new.
This is a fantastic business opportunity for a purchaser with experience in the trade. Hilton Smythe highly advise early viewing in order to take in full potential of the butchers.
