Business Description
Business
Hilton Smythe are delighted to present to the market Mummy B’s, a fully equipped jiffy catering van round established 7 years ago. The successful business has been in our client’s hands for the last 2 years who has now decided to sell to concentrate on other business pursuits.

The round focuses on a regular and loyal customer base at the Willow Lane Estate, attracted by the range of daily hot and cold menu choices available from the van.

Our client informs us 80% of the weekly turnover comes from hot food sales and 20% from the cold selections.

Our client is proud to offer a homemade option of daily specials including curry’s, chillies, cottage pie, lasagne, spicy chicken, beef burgers as well as hot breakfast, bacon or sausage rolls. Hot sandwiches can be made as a wrap, roll or baguette. There is also a vegan choice of food, salads, snacks, fruit and cold drinks.

Our client currently chooses to shop daily for her ingredients which means service stops after lunch followed by a trip to the supermarkets or Bookers cash and carry. Any new owner may look to extend the hours to include an afternoon snack time service and carry out any ingredient shopping at the end of the week.

If any new owner already owns a similar catering business, buying together would not only save time but also improve the gross profit levels.

In the 2nd year of trading with the round, our client has increased turnover by 50% which any new owner could enjoy the benefits of and by increasing opening hours could take this single catering van business to the £80,000 level.

As the business is singly run by our client, there are no staff to worry about.

If any prospective buyer is looking to purchase a new catering business but put off by the pressures of a leased premises, high utility bills and business rates then they would be best placed to look at this low running costs, low hassle yet profitable mobile catering business that still offers further opportunity to increase sales levels.

Location
Mummy B’s is a highly regarded catering van business predominantly serving the Willow Lane Trading Estate in Mitcham, Surrey.

The Willow Lane Trading Estate has been a well-established centre of a commerce and industry for a number of years. With over 150 businesses employing over 2,500 people, the estate benefits from great transport links by tram, rail and bus.

The estate is very hard to get into with a wide range of companies including building contractors and associate’s trades, events services, trade waste companies, food manufacturers, engineering companies, printing businesses and many more. The ideal mix for any mobile catering business!

Our client’s round includes 10-11 stops for breakfast, mid-morning breaks and lunchtime hot and cold meals.

Our client chooses to operate on this estate at these times only however there is high demand for both later opening and other estates, offices and locations nearby to this core round which is not been investigated.

Any new buyer may also look to utilise the free weekend time to undertake events, festivals, private parties or local deliveries.
