Hilton Smythe are privileged to offer to the market City Meats, a renowned butchers & deli business established over 30 years ago.

The business is now being offered for sale with full handover from our client who is now selling due to his wish to retire.

The business is one of very few on the Kings Road which is owned by the local council which ensure long lease terms with very low rents in comparison to the many private landlords owning property on the street.

The business offers endless goodwill, from both walk in customers as well approximately 10 wholesale customers attracted by the array of English, Spanish & Italian products. The choice of goods is endless and includes -

  • Traditional butchers - meats sourced from Scotland and Smithfield market in London

  • Cooked meats, chorizo, prosciutto, salami, hams chicken

  • Freshly cooked prepared meals, lasagnes, stews & pasta

  • Olive oils, fruit & veg, sauces, herbs, chutneys, soups & pulses

  • Large choice of pastas, breads & cheeses from around the world

  • Biscotti, panettone, baci, chocolates & pastries

We are advised the sales mix is derived 60% from walk in customers and 40% wholesale customers.

Our client also undertakes certain high end catering requests for parties and gatherings.

The deli attracts both local and central London people looking for authentic and freshness not available in High street supermarkets.

Wholesale clients include local schools and colleges, European restaurants and clubs.

The business comes with a 5 star hygiene rating.

Our client admits he runs the business to suit and turns down many requests for more wholesale customers.  Any new owner would benefit from adding any of the following actions to help further boost the excellent turnover in place -

  • New website, social media presence and instagram

  • Online ordering facility with monthly, seasonal and gift ideas

  • Adding a choice of commentary wines, liqueurs and spirits

  • Increasing the food to go menu, including more ready meal ideas as well lunchtime snacks, sandwiches & salads

  • Increasing the outside catering menu for parties, weddings & celebrations

Very rarely do unique businesses of this type ever come onto the open market in this area and we therefore recommend early viewing to avoid disappointment.

The City Meat Butchers & Deli occupies a highly sought after trading position along the Kings Road in Chelsea, London.

The renowned business sits along a busy parade of community driven shops which include several cafes & bistros, Newsagents, hairdressers, spa, bike shop, kitchen design shop and public house.

The Kings Road is a major retail street stretching through Chelsea and Fulham, both in West London. The road is associated with the 1960’s movement for fashion and interior design with well known fashion figures such as Mary Quant and Vivienne Westwood.

The business benefits from pay and display parking directly outside.
