Hilton Smythe welcomes to the market Ruth’s Floral Design Studio. The business is very well supported by the local community being the only florist in Wolverton. The business was originally founded by our client in 2004 seeing year on year growth to the profitable business it is today. The business reports a turnover of 150,000 with gross profit around 45%.
Ruth’s Floral Design Studio operates from substantial premises with floral displays artistically arranged throughout. The business offers quality bespoke arrangements using quality flowers for all special occasions and events. The business has established a firm loyal client base seeing much repeat trade and word of mouth referrals. The business also has regular work from two local Funeral Directors. Additional revenue is generated from the sales of gifts, silk flowers, pot plants, balloons, dress jewellery and complimentary floral accessories.
The business has a fantastic interactive website www.ruthsfloraldesign.co.uk with e-commerce section showing some of the arrangements available, and a talking flowers section the only florist in Buckingham with this unique concept.
Our clients currently sub-let the first floor to a photographer and the second floor to a printing design studio on a 2 year lease agreement with landlord’s consent. This yields a further income of £7000 per annum. The size of the premise lends to further sub-letting or the possibility of increasing the product range if required.
There is also a livered van used for deliveries available to purchase by separate negotiation.
This is a lovely business with a solid client base and enviable reputation and early viewing comes highly recommended. The business genuinely comes to the market as our client looks forward to semi-retirement.
