Business Description
This is an excellent opportunity to purchase an independent family retail and catering butcher. Trade is split 35% retail, 65% catering.

Well established with a 100 year trading history the vendor bought the business back in 2002 and specialises in the supply of all meat and poultry products. The produce is prepared for retail and catering, prepared to the catering clients own requirements, fresh or frozen, vacuum packed, labelled on a daily basis, ensuring freshness and excellent quality. This has placed the business firmly in the local market and enhanced its enviable reputation amongst the general public customers and its many accounts that include restaurants, schools, hotels and pubs.

The business operates from very well suited, freehold, retail premises that includes residential accommodation. With a predominately retail customer base the business has some important trade customers – it provides a full catering service to restaurants, hotels, schools, restaurants and pubs. The range of produce is prepared by experienced and skilled butchers using the traditional hands-on methods of hanging, butchering and preparing meat.

As would be expected of a traditional butcher with all of the necessary skills available in house, products are cut and prepared exactly to each and every customer’s specific requirements. Not surprisingly this business is a firm favourite with its loyal customer base, drawing customers from several miles around. The business is profitable and has grown consistently over the years.

There is a small team of highly experienced staff who maintain a friendly and helpful service to their customers as would be expected from their local butchers.

The freehold houses the retail and residential accommodation conservatively valued at £245,000. This represents an excellent acquisition opportunity for an independent butcher in the area looking for an additional outlet with the possibility of additional income from a rental property, if not required, or alternatively someone already employed within the trade to start out on their own.

The business uses Sage for accounts and payroll and a bespoke invoicing system.
