Hilton Smythe is delighted to welcome to the market Somerset Catering Ltd. This family run business was first established by our client 5 years ago. The business is part of Sausage and Pear Ltd; each arm of the business is run by the family.
This catering business has been a success in the area and has a large client base. Our client is now looking to sell the business due to the desire to take a well-deserved retirement.
The business runs as a catering service offering a fantastic range of tasty foods to Somerset and the Bristol area. They cater for all tastes and offer a range of services. Some of the services available are mobile bar hire, wedding venue hire and marquee hire.
They cater for all occasions such as weddings, funerals, dinner parties and other celebrations; offering a personalised menu for each event. Photos of their products can be found on the business website. www.somersetcatering.co.uk The site also allows for customer enquiries.
We are advised the business generates a healthy turnover of around £596,000 per annum with a gross profit of 16%. This is a great turnover however we feel it could be increased further by expanding clientele. The new owner should look to advertise on free social media such as Facebook and Twitter. These are very popular sites that generate a lot of interest for businesses.
We must advise the purchaser that this is a family run business and would require several members of staff. The delivery drivers would be happy to carry on working for the new owner which will allow for an easier transaction.
This is a large business with unlimited potential. We highly advise a motivated new owner who is experienced in the trade to view this business at the earliest convenience. Our client has run the business to a high standard and so this is a fantastic opportunity for any interested parties.
