Hilton Smythe is delighted to welcome to the market this well-established and popular sweet shop in Buckinghamshire.
The business has been in our clients’ careful ownership since 2012 and is only now being offered to the market due to our clients’ desire for a well-deserved retirement. The business operates 6 days per week and generates a turnover in the region of £73,000 per annum, with a gross profit of approximately 49%.
Our clients offer a delicious collection of traditional and contemporary sweets including Cherry Lips, Uncle Joe’s Mint Balls, Cough Sweets, Coldsfoot Rock, Pear Drops and Liquorice, as well as a huge range of sugar free sweets and chocolate.
The business has built up an enviable reputation within the area for the high quality of the goods and services offered, which has resulted in a very loyal client base, with a high volume of repeat trade and word of mouth recommendations.
We feel there is scope to increase the turnover by extending the opening hours, perhaps by offering Sunday trading. A new owner could also embark on a modest marketing campaign to promote the business and the services offered.
This is an excellent opportunity to acquire a thriving and busy sweet shop, with vast scope for growth; therefore early viewing must come highly recommended to avoid disappointment.
