Reason for sale:
Sadly it is only now that our client is moving away from the area due to partners work commitments that this extremely profitable business is reluctantly for sale.
The business is exempt from Business Rates.
We are advised that the business is run solely by our client.
Currently run at a pace to suit our client from 8am - 2pm with 15 regular stops.
There is tremendous scope to increase the already heathy turnover by introducing more hours and weekend working at events and fairs.
Turnover - £80,000 per annum with a healthy net profit of £20,000 per annum.
Note: Our client takes an average of £300 - £350 per day.
This really is a superb opportunity to be your own boss within an area that is fully established with guaranteed takings.
Priced to sell quickly, we feel this well-known business will not be on the market long.
