Hilton Smythe welcomes to the market 4 Occasions. The business was originally established in 2010 by our client. The florist has been a great success in this location and is very popular with the locals. The owner is now looking to sell the shop, due to the desire to focus on other interests.
The business runs as a florist offering an excellent range of products. They offer fresh flowers, floral displays, plants, funeral tributes and wedding displays. Our client is a member of Direct2Florist, which provides 4-5 bouquet orders per day, this is a big plus to the business. Orders can be placed through an e-commerce website. Deliveries are free within a 5 mile radius.
The florist is currently generating an advised turnover of around £75,000 per annum, with a gross profit of around 30%. This is a healthy turnover, we are advised that the business was recently moved to this current property and since, our client has seen a month on month growth.
The business has an exceptional website www4occasions.co.uk. On this e-commerce site there is an excellent range of stock available, the site is also used to promote regular offers and promotions.
The florist offers a chocolate fountain hire, this is very popular with weddings and private parties; complimenting the business well. There are different packages available for the hire, all are hired out for 2 hours with a uniformed member of staff.
This is a fantastic opportunity that is not to be missed. Hilton Smythe highly advise early viewing to take in the full potential of the trade.
