Best thing since sliced bread – the sandwich!

Before sandwiches were so readily available, only the elite enjoyed them. In fact as a recipe, the sandwich has a very interesting history! It was formally invented in 1762 when the Earl of Sandwich requested something to eat while playing cards. He was given a beef, cheese and horseradish sandwich.

Afternoon tea came in 1840, a light meal consisting of tea and sandwiches – a British institution!

The French adopted the sandwich in 1910 and in 1980, M&S invented the packaged sandwich. Today, it is estimated that at least 60% of Brits buy a sandwich at least once a year. Many of us buy fresh or pre-made sandwiches once a week or more.

An excellent service provided, I would certainly use them again

All Hilton Smythe's staff were extremely helpful from our initial enquiry into the sale of Jacks Sandwich Bar, with this service continuing right through to the confirmation of purchase. All our questions (of which we had many) were responded to quickly and efficiently and there staff went beyond what was required to ensure we completed the purchase on the agreed date.

Opportunities to boost revenue

With so much competition in the market, it’s a good idea to consider opportunities to increase revenue streams. You could also advertise catering services in addition to serving customers in the shop. Team up with local offices to offer corporate catering at their meetings – who can resist a selection of fresh sandwiches? Catering services can also be hired for private events which require a cold buffet.
