Hilton Smythe welcomes to the market Mr D’s Quality Meat.

The business has been operated by the current vendors for over twelve years in which time it has built up an unrivalled reputation for quality and service within the surrounding area. Due to family commitments this rare and exciting opportunity has now become available.

The business has a very strong local following and dedicated customer base with customers travelling from miles around to sample the local fayre on offer.

The business sells a delicious range of:

• Meats
• Fresh fruit
• Vegetables
• Range of cheese
• Condiments
• Sauces

The business effectively generates three income streams which the new operator could continue to expand and develop.

The business sells a delicious range of locally sourced Faggot’s, sausages and Pork Pies which are all produced by the current owners who would be happy to work with the new operator to maintain chain of supply routes to the business will be maintained.

The site itself is very affordable to operate with low running costs and offers the opportunity for either an established operator looking for an additional out of town site with low overheads or for a partnership/individual to take an already respected and established business and take it to the next level.

The site would benefit from developing a stronger on-line presence, expanding the delivery service and as well as the range of products available and targeting the many pubs and restaurants in the area with special offers.

A very rare opportunity within this sector, viewing is highly recommended.
