Hilton Smythe is delighted to welcome to the market The Deli-Licious. This deli was first established in the summer of 2014 by our client.
In such a short space of time our client has built up a fantastic profitable business. The owner is now however looking to reluctantly sell due to ill health.
We are advised this is a brilliant business, in a popular area with high demand for the trade. There is a very little amount of competition, therefore the business receives a high amount of business from the locals and passing trade.
The premise is perfect for this trade. The business runs as a delicatessen selling a great range of produce. On sale are foods such as sandwiches, paninis, sausage rolls, pies, cakes, biscuits, sweets and more.
The business is currently generating a turnover of around £68,000 as per 2016 accounts, this is brilliant however we feel this figure could be increased massively. Some ways to increase turnover would be to-
Extend opening hours
Introduce a loyalty scheme to attract repeat trade
Consider advertising on Just Eat and/or Hungry House
Take advantage of free social media
Introduce a website with an example of the menu.
Another way in which turnover could be increased would be to offer an outside catering service. The premise is a perfect size and would be well suited. Outside catering would boost sales massively. We highly advise this should be something the new owner looks into.
Our client would be more than happy to offer a hand over period to the purchaser, if required. The business has been run at a steady pace to suit our client’s needs; this deli would be a perfect opportunity for a hard working new owner with the determination to succeed.
This business benefits from low rent as the lease is provided by the local council. Hilton Smythe highly advise any interested parties to view at the earliest opportunity to avoid missing out.
