Description

Hilton Smythe is delighted to welcome to the market the superb Relish. This outstanding business successfully combines a busy sandwich shop with a complementary outside catering business to corporate contract and private clients.

Relish was originally founded by our client in 2010 and since then has established a loyal client base and fantastic reputation mainly due to the diverse menu that offers something that little bit different and also due to our client’s attention to detail and very high standard of quality. The business has been rewarded with the 5 star food and hygiene certificate for consecutive years.

Relish sandwich shop provides a fantastic variety of freshly prepared fare including hot and cold sandwiches with an extensive menu of fillings on different types of breads, salad boxes, pies, soups, paninis, toasties, bagels, snacks, jacket potatoes and all day breakfasts. The shop is in pristine condition throughout with a fully fitted kitchen and good artistic branding on the menu boards.

The Relish outside catering arm of the business is quickly expanding with much repeat trade and word of mouth referrals, and is becoming very well known throughout Lancashire. The caterer provides quality, affordable freshly prepared cold buffets for corporate clients, private parties, christenings, weddings, and other special occasions. With a highly skilled team ensuring the smooth running of each event. The business offers bespoke packages with hot menu options with equipment available to hire if required. The buffets are beautifully presented and delivered to the venue of the client’s choice in the company van, which is included in the sale price.

We believe this rapidly developing business has the potential for further growth, perhaps by extending opening hours to cover weekend trade to increase turnover. The Turnover has increased dramatically from approximately £977 to in the region of £1400 per week this year. This is due ‘inpart’ from substantial business tendered for from national and multi-national companies based locally. In addition, we feel this would be a fantastic opportunity for a husband and wife team or partnership to take over the helm, thus reducing the wages bill and lower overheads as our client currently employs a number of staff, due to family commitments.

Early viewing of this outstanding profitable business is highly recommended.
