Hilton Smythe takes great pleasure in introducing Dalby's Family Butchers to the market, which was established by the family in 1935 and was passed onto our client in 1975. Our client has worked tirelessly over the past 37 years and has built up an enviable reputation locally. The business is only now reluctantly offered for sale as our client looks towards retirement.
The business provides its customers with the highest quality fresh meats as well as offering a range of hot and cold sandwiches and a selection of pastries. Although the business generates a healthy turnover, it is currently is operated at a pace to suit our client and has substantially reduced opening hours, as such there is huge scope to expand opening hours which would no doubt increase turnover further.
We are advised that in the past, the business provided an outside catering service which was extremely lucrative. Offering this service again, along with a local marketing campaign would be greatly beneficial for any new owner.
This business would suit a variety of purchasers including a husband and wife partnership or family enterprise and indeed the premises would be suitable for a variety of uses such as a cafe or other retail business if required.
This is a rare opportunity to acquire such a thriving and profitable concern and so early discussions with Hilton Smythe must come highly recommended at an early stage.
TENUREAdvised leasehold. A new lease is to be negotiated with our client and our client will be happy to consider a freehold option if preferred.
HOURSThe business currently opens 4 days per week and observes the following opening hours:
Tuesday and Thursday - 9am to 3pm
Friday and Saturday - 9am to 4pm
STAFFThe business is currently owner operated and managed.
