Business Hilton Smythe are delighted to introduce to the market EA & JD Nurse. Established by our clients
some 36 years ago, our clients have worked tirelessly to build up the business to the highly profitable concern it is today. The business reports a fantastic turnover of around £600,000 per annum with a good gross profit.
The business is a specialist wholesale concern supplying and delivering food and drink, packaging and catering supplies to the catering trade including sandwich shops, cafes, delis, schools, pubs, restaurants, butchers shops and hotels.
Currently the business has one refrigerated van covering areas in Yorkshire including Pontefract, Wetherby, Selby and York and another van supplying Leeds, Doncaster and Hull. The business has an enviable reputation and a long list of loyal clients with regular orders in situ.
Including in the sale is the owners stunning 4 bedroom farmhouse, nestled within the breath taking grounds covering around 3.5 acres. In addition there is a 2 bedroom accommodation attached to the main house, with a sitting tenant and yielding an additional income of £700 per month.
We believe the business has potential for further development, perhaps by introducing another van and extending the delivery area to wider afield or introducing a website to promote the businesses assets and the potential to launch an e-commerce function to allow on-line sales.
We highly recommend early viewing of this long established and reputable business in this most desirable location, with the business genuinely coming to the market as our clients wish to move abroad.
