Hilton Smythe welcomes to the market Ash News.
The business has been operated by the current vendor for over 12 years in which time it has built up a loyal and solid customer base and due to retirement this rare and exciting opportunity has now become available.
The business sells a range of convenience goods along with
• Newspapers & magazines
• Soft drinks
• Chilled and frozen foods
• Ice cream
• Slush puppies
• Lottery scratch cards
• Range of gift cards
The site is in a much sought-after location with busy passing trade especially on match days at Leicester City along with both residential dwellings and other thriving businesses surrounding the site.
The business would benefit from extending the range of goods on offer obtaining an alcohol licence and opening for extended hours to maximise the huge potential the site offers, as well as extending the food and sandwich offering to increase the lunchtime trade developing that particular income stream.
The business is a turn key opportunity with very little in-going costs which is well established and currently trading limited hours offering the new owner huge scope to increase turnover and profits very quickly.
The business does not currently offer Pay-zone, Parcel service, National lottery or top up, All of which could take this business to the next level, as well as extending the opening hours.Location
