Sell your Florist Shop the Hilton Smythe Way

Running a florist or a flower shop is a very rewarding job. But it’s also hard work.

From visits to wholesalers to working weekends, you’ve put in long hours for many years. Nobody can blame you for needing a break! If you’re considering selling up, Hilton Smythe can find a suitable buyer for your florist fast.

Moving on

If it’s time to move on from your florist business then consider the reasoning. Some buyers like to know why the business is for sale. Selling a small business such as a florist can be hard work. So make sure you’re selling for the right reason. Perhaps you need to sell up because your personal circumstances have changed, or due to ill health it’s not possible for you to run the business anymore. Another popular reason for selling a business is retirement.

With Brits spending a whopping £2bn a year on fresh cut flowers, the floral industry is still thriving. Special occasions such as weddings and funerals bring in a large proportion of income, as do sales on holidays such as Valentine’s and Mother’s Day. When you’re selling a business, you sell the specialised sector too, so make the most of its potential.

Tailored advice and support

When selling a business, it’s critical to get professional advice from a business broker. At Hilton Smythe we sell businesses in locations across the UK and have specific sector knowledge. This means our advice is tailored to your small business, and will make sure your florist sells for the best possible price.

We may be business experts but we’re also super friendly and promise not to confuse you with legal or financial jargon! We’ll guide you through each step of the process, and you’ll feel comfortable to ask us any questions along the way.

No hidden fees

Selling a business is stressful enough, especially if you’ve been forced into the decision by a personal or family illness. The last thing you need when going through the sale process is surprise hidden fees, which further reduce your profits from the business transfer. If you use Hilton Smythe as your business broker, you won’t be charged any up-front advertising fees even though we advertise on more platforms than other agents.

Additionally, we can assure you there are no hidden fees which will crop up along the way. Even if you cancel and choose to go elsewhere, there will be no cancellation fees to pay. You’ll know exactly how much the sale will cost you from day one.
