Business Description
Hilton Smythe are delighted to offer to the market this well-established and very busy florist business in Langley Moor, County Durham.

Our client established the business in 2006 and is only now, reluctantly, offering it to the market due to a desire for a well-deserved retirement. The business operates 6 days per week, Monday – Saturday, with two half days, generating a turnover in the region of £56,700 per annum, with a gross profit of approximately 48%.

The business offers a wide variety of services including general floristry services and bespoke floral arrangements for wedding, funerals and for local businesses. Our client has built up an enviable reputation within the area for the high quality of the goods and services offered, which has resulted in a 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 of the business, as currently our client closes at 12 noon on Wednesdays and Saturdays. A new owner could also hold a small marketing campaign to highlight the goods and services offered, There is also scope to launch a website for the business, which could incorporate online ordering services.

This is an excellent opportunity for a new owner to take this already thriving business to the next level; therefore early viewing must come highly recommended to avoid disappointment.
