Hilton Smythe is delighted to welcome to the market this popular butchers business in Bournemouth, Dorset. The business was established by our client in 1993 and is only now being placed onto the market due to our client`s desire for a well-earned retirement. The business is open 6 days per week and generates a very healthy turnover in the region of £260,789 per annum, with a gross profit of approximately 31%.
The turnover is generated from the sale of high quality produce such as Scottish premiere beef, lamb and pork, as well as locally sourced produce. Our client also offers in-house made faggots, cooked meats, sausages, pies and pasties, eggs, pre-packed bacon, black puddings and pre-packed cheeses. The business has an excellent reputation within the area for the high quality produce available and the friendly service offered, which has resulted in a very loyal client base with a vast amount of repeat trade, as well as word of mouth referrals. Our client also supplies local public houses and clubs. There is a Ford Transit van that is used for deliveries, which is included in the price.
The property benefits from a two bedroom flat to the first floor, which could be used as owner`s accommodation or rented out to generate further income. We are advised our client has rented out the flat for £650 per month. We feel the turnover could be increased by extending the opening hours and perhaps opening on Sundays. There is also scope to embark on a small advertising campaign to advertise the business and the produce on offer. A new owner could also establish a website to promote the business. This is an excellent opportunity for a new owner to take this thriving and popular business to the next level; therefore early viewing must come highly recommended.
The business is owner run and managed with two staff members.
The business is open:
Monday – Saturday: 7.00am – 5.00pm
