Hilton Smythe is pleased to welcome to the market Mr Browns Traditional Food Hall, which is part of an old established business and has been in the careful ownership of our client since August 2012. This is a growing business with a turnover for the last financial year of £145,924 with a gross profit of approximately 49.37%. Adjusted net profit for a working couple would be in the region of £56,564 per annum.

The business enjoys unopposed breakfast and lunchtime trade with the benefit of free parking outside the shop and in the village which attracts not only local support but workmen passing the area. The business is currently profitably run under management with opportunities to increase this further with a hands on owner.

The business offers a range of quality products including hot and cold fresh sandwiches, pies, cooked meats, fresh bread and cakes, cheese, jams, milk, eggs and hot/cold drinks.

We feel there is genuine potential to expand the business by extending the hot food offered and a wider range of products in the spacious shop, there is also the possibility of introducing sandwich deliveries as a number of enquiries have been received from local offices and industrial areas.

The business genuinely comes to the market as our client wises to concentrate on his core wholesale bakery business.



We are advised leasehold. Approximately 4.5 years of a 5 year lease remaining with fixed rent for this period. We understand the Landlord would be happy to negotiate a longer lease if required. Rent is 6500 per annum.


The business opens:- Monday to Friday 8.00am to 4.00pm Saturday 8.00am to 2.30pm Sunday closed


The business has one full-time manager and two part-time staff members which do not have to be taken on by new owners.
