Hilton Smythe welcomes to the market Phoenix Pet Foods in Swadlincote Derbyshire, this long-established business has been operated by the current vendor for over 13 years in which time it has built up an enviable reputation for quality and excellent customer service and which due to retirement this rare and exciting business opportunity has now become available.

The business supplies a wide range of pet foods and feeds to the retail sector and has built up a strong and loyal customer base with over 200 regular customers visiting a week. The business is currently supplied by three separate wholesalers to service the retail/domestic sector.

The business has huge growth potential and could easily expand by introducing a stronger on-line presence with an additional ordering/payment platform to expand the retail side further along with targeting trade customers to expand the customer database and start grow this side of the business. The Limited Company is run very efficiently working on a cash/card payment basis with no account customers which enables good cash flow for the business which is being offered to the market as a Limited Company Purchase.

The business has huge potential and would be ideal for an established operator looking for an additional site or a foothold in this sector of the market or an individual or partnership looking for their first business opportunity with the benefit of acquiring a Limited Company with excellent trading history and a swift return on initial investment.

The business operates from a clean and tidy two storey business unit which has the capacity to accommodate future growth and is owned by the current vendor giving the new operator the flexibility of negotiating a new lease. A very rare turn-key business opportunity.
