Manufacturer and Retailer of Pet Food Business For Sale
Hilton Smythe is delighted to welcome to the market this well-established manufacturer and retailer of pet food, currently located in Worcestershire. The business was established by our clients in 1976 and is only now being offered to the market due to our clients desire for a well-deserved retirement. The business operates 5½ days per week and generates a turnover in the region of £471,200 per annum, with a gross profit of approximately 22%. Our clients manufacture and retail many varieties of pet food for horses, rabbits. guinea pigs and hamsters to name a few. The business has built up an excellent reputation within the area for the high quality of service and the goods offered, which has resulted in a loyal client base with a high volume of repeat trade and word of mouth referrals. Although the business only is for sale, our clients would be happy to lease the premises currently being used if required, these include the manufacturing barn, an outbuilding used for the storage of animal feed and an outbuilding for the retail side of the business, they are also happy to enter into negotiations as to the length of the lease and rent to be paid. We feel there is scope to increase the turnover by embarking on a modest marketing campaign, as there is currently no advertising undertaken. The business would also benefit from the launch of a website to promote the business. A new owner could also open a retail store within the area, which would further increase turnover. This is an excellent opportunity for a new owner to take this profitable business to the next level; therefore early discussions with Hilton Smythe must come highly recommended.
