Hilton Smythe is delighted to introduce to the market The Lunch Box. This sandwich shop is very popular in the area, and receives a lot of custom from passing trade.
Originally established in 1995 the sandwich shop is well known and generates great profits. Our client first took over the shop in 2012 but is now looking to sell the business due to relocation.
The business runs as a sandwich shop and takeaway. The business also offers a delivery service, to business around the area. We are advised the business offers outside catering and have managed to secure several verbal contracts, supplying to local companies and their events.
The business has a website www.outsidecateringpreston.co.uk this promotes the outside catering side of the business and has menus and create your own buffet option. The website is included in the price.
The current advised turnover for the business is around £65,000 per annum, with a gross profit of 80%. This is fantastic with a generous gross profit. We believe the turnover could be increased further by extending the outside catering service. By confirming more contracts with local pubs and hotels etc, there is a more guaranteed source of income. This could be something the new owner looks into.
The Lunch Box has a fantastic menu with a range of choice. They sell breakfasts, paninis, jacket potatos, sandwiches and hot meals such as curry, hot pot and lasagne. They offer great daily specials at low affordable prices.
This is a brilliant opportunity for a buyer looking for a fully fitted business. We highly advise early viewing to avoid disappointment.
