The business has been established for 8 years and has only come to market due to the owner needing to semi-retire and help with family commitments. The business has been trading for the past year on significantly reduced hours, with only one part time member of staff, due to the owners family commitments. In previous years when the business operated longer hours with 2- 4 full time staff, the turnover was double the current. A new owner, therefore, has the opportunity to expand the trading hours and easily increase turnover. The premises would also be suitable for numerous types of food production or small scale food manufacturing.
