Hilton Smythe are proud to present to the market Don Hayes Butchers.
Don Hayes Butchers has been an established business for over 30 years with our clients successfully running the business since inception around 10 years ago. The business currently holds a 5-star hygiene rating from South Gloucestershire Council. The butchers is well known in the area seeing a high amount of repeat trade as well as passing trade due to its prime location.
Our clients have now reluctantly decided to sell the business due to retirement.
This award winning butchers offers a wide range of quality fresh meats, seasonal game and poultry. They currently make their own award winning sausages and are the current holders of the BPEX South West Bacon Championship.
Additionally they produce a wide range of their own pastry products and have a good revenue from the sale of home-cooked meats. Additional revenue is also derived from the catering supplies to local schools, cafes and farm shops in the area. The business does particularly well at Christmas time and runs a very successful Christmas club for customers.
The business is currently turning over a figure of £450,000 per annum and although this is a very healthy turnover, we feel that a new owner could take the already thriving butchers shop to the next level by perhaps expanding the catering side of the business. The business may also benefit from a modest marketing campaign via social media to keep customers up to date with new products, promotions and progress within the shop.
The business is very well maintained with a high level of equipment, it also further benefits from a former bedsit above the business which could be converted back to living space and let to generate further income. There is also a large cellar below which is used for further storage space.
We highly recommend an early viewing of this business to avoid disappointment.
Don Hayes Butchers is located in Staple Hill, South Gloucestershire, just outside the boundary of Bristol in the South West of England.
This thriving butchers is situated in the centre of a busy high street surrounded by a plethora of small independent retail shops. It benefits from excellent footfall and passing trade throughout the day. The surrounding area is very densely populated and the business sits on a main bus route with a bus stop conveniently situated directed outside.
There is ample parking on the high street itself and two free public car parks nearby. The City and surrounding areas are served by several stations and the M32 links Bristol to the national motorway network.
The business premises is a single fronted property situated in the centre of the very busy high street.
The shop benefits from a large refrigerated window bed for the display of fresh meats. The retail area of the shop has an L-shaped refrigerated cabinet, currently used for the display and sale of bacon, cheeses, pastry products and cooked meat. This area is equipped with a Bizerba electronic scale and till system, a cooked meat slicer, a relatively new butchers block and stainless steel table. There is a large walk in fridge to accommodate prepared fresh meat.
Behind the retail area is the first of two preparation rooms. This large room is fitted with a further butcher’s block, a range of stainless steel shelving and 2 commercial stainless steel sinks. There is also a raw meat vacuum packer, an over wrapper and a raw meat scale. The current owner also utilises this space for a small desk/office area.
To the rear of the shop is a further large preparation room accommodating two walk in fridges for the storage of animal carcasses and bacon products. This room accommodates a further butcher’s block, a Berkel bacon slicer, commercial sized mixer, mincer and hydraulic sausage filler. A section at the back is exclusively used for the preparation and cooking of ready to eat foods. There is a large commercial oven and further vacuum packer and overwrapper as well as a stainless steel cooked product fridge and a Rose ham boiler.
There is access to the back of the shop from the yard for deliveries from large lorries. The detached garage provides storage and houses 3 chest freezers.
There is parking for up to 6 vehicles.
The business currently uses this space for storage of dry goods and as a staff rest room. It comprises a former lounge bedroom, kitchen and dining room/office with a toilet and shower. As mentioned before this would be relatively easy to convert this space back to a bedsit. There is a large terrace to the rear with stairs down to the back yard.
