Hilton Smythe is delighted to welcome to the market this well-established and busy butchers business, ideally located in Effingham, Surrey.
The business was established by our client in 1982, although there has been a butchers on this site for over 60 years. Only now is the business being offered to the market due to our client's desire for a well-deserved retirement. The business currently operates 5 days per week and generates a turnover in the region of £150,000 per annum, with a gross profit of approximately 40%.
Our client offers a wide range of local free range meat and BBQ fayre, as well as cooked meats. The business has built up an enviable reputation within the area for the high quality of the goods and services offered, which has resulted in a very loyal client base, with high volume of repeat trade and word of mouth recommendations.
We feel there is scope to increase the turnover by extending the opening hours. A new owner could also embark on a modest marketing campaign to highlight the goods and services offered. The business could also launch a website to advertise the fayre offered and introduce a delivery service within the area.
This is an excellent opportunity for a new owner to take this already thriving business to the next level; therefore early viewing must come highly recommended to avoid disappointment.
