Hilton Smythe welcomes to the market Keith Ashmore Butchers.
The business has been operated by the current owner for over seven years in which time it has built up an unrivalled reputation for quality and service. Due to family commitments this rare and exciting opportunity has now become available.
The business has a very strong local following and dedicated customer base with the added benefit of being a part of Leicester’s famous Market Place. The site benefits from its prime location within the Market Food Hall with busy passing trade as well as having a customer base of local pubs and restaurants which due to its location could easily be expanded by the new operator.
Keith Ashmore Butchers sells a wide range of traditional meats, sausages, steaks and ham, all from established supplier chains with local produce also being sourced.
The Butchers offers the opportunity for either an established Butcher looking for an additional site in an excellent trading location or an individual looking for the opportunity to obtain an established business and take it to the next level by creating a stronger on line and social media presence and developing the product offering further by introducing new ranges and seasonal specials.
The business creates a respectable turnover with a very attractive nett profit which would ensure a rapid return on investment as well as having the benefit of its location and City Council landlord covenant strength.
