Hilton Smythe is delighted to welcome to the market this well-established and very popular sweet shop business in Lutterworth, Leicestershire. The business was established in 2009 and is only now being offered to the market due to our client`s wish to take semi-retirement. The business is open 6 days per week and generates a turnover in the region of £51,300 per annum, with a reported gross profit of approximately 60%.
The turnover is generated from the sale of a wide range of loose sweets, Belgian chocolates, handmade fudge and ice cream. Our client also caters for corporate events, wedding favours and parties, including party bags. The premises have been fitted to a high standard and are well-maintained throughout. The shop has wall-to-wall cabinets filled with a huge range of jars of sweets, traditional ice cream and gifts.
There is scope to increase the turnover by extending the opening hours and perhaps open Sundays, as the current owner only open on Sundays close to Christmas time. The business would also benefit from the launch of a website to promote the business and the goods/services offered. A new owner could also introduce online ordering facilities to increase sales. This is an excellent opportunity for a new owner to take this already busy and thriving business to the next level; therefore, early viewing must come highly recommended.
