Hilton Smythe welcomes to the market Ludham Butchers. This traditional family run business was originally founded back in the 1960’s and has been run and managed by our clients’, a successful husband and wife team since inception in 1992. The butcher’s is immaculately presented with a high level of equipment and fittings to suit the trade. Ludham Butchers has an exceptional reputation for the high-quality produce and friendly customer service seeing a high amount of support from residents and further benefits from tourist trade. According to the 2016 accounts, turnover is in the region of £160,500 with gross profit at 30%. We believe that a new owner should consider wholesale trade to local businesses or set up a delivery service in the area to increase revenue. The size of the premise could also allow for further product lines to be introduced and the potential to start in-house baking. We highly recommend early viewing of this outstanding business in this most desirable location, which genuinely comes to the market as our client’s look towards a well-deserved retirement.
