Business Description
Hilton Smythe welcomes to the market Well Dressed Catering. The business was originally established in 2014 by our clients. The business has been a great success in the area, however, our clients are now looking to sell the business due to the desire to focus on other interests.

The business runs as an outside catering company offering its services to a database of over 75 major events. They provide their products in the South West of England. The catering business offers three stalls, all of which are very popular and look professional. The business is well known for its Best Devon 8oz beef burger and Hippy Chicken. They provide street food sourcing local produce; this is a great plus.


Two Coast County- which is a multi-award winning stall offering BBQ and grill food.

Tip Top Chip Shop- offering traditional fish and chips.

Match Made In Devon- this is a bespoke gazeebo perfect for weddings.

We are advised there is high demand for this product and our clients are having to turn down enquiries due to the high bookings. The business is currently run by two owners and casual help. This catering service requires more staff in order to take in more bookings. There is potential to run weddings and festivals every weekend, in the warmed summer months. There are many future bookings this year in Exeter for weddings and festivals.

The business is currently generating an advised turnover of around £55,000 per annum. This is a great turnover, however, it could be increased. Well Dressed Catering has an exceptional client base and over the years has built up relationships with other trade contracts. We feel that contracts could be built up with customers and should be something the new owner looks into.

The business has a professional feel and comes with a number of domain names such as-

The company has a great online presents. Our clients have set up many forms of social media pages. These platforms are a great way of advertising effectively for free. The sale does also include a website. This site has been complete to a high standard and is easy to use. This is where they promote the wonderful food created, information about the business, up and coming events and menus.

This is an excellent business that has huge scope for growth. We feel with a determined new owner this already thriving business could be taken to the next level. Our clients are willing to offer training to the purchaser to allow for a smooth transfer. Please contact Hilton Smythe for further information.

Well Dressed Catering is currently located in Exeter, Devon.

This business can be run from the purchaser’s home if required. There is a large amount of stock so a storage area would be a great idea.

The catering service can be relocated to anywhere in the South West but could be expanded further round the UK.

This is a business only opportunity so there are no premises included in the sale. However, there is a large amount of stock and equipment which is included in the sale price.
