Hilton Smythe is delighted to present to the market Marrows Ltd, an independently owned fresh fruit and vegetable supplier operating in the desirable Cotswolds triangle.

The ‘turn-key’ opportunity was established by our client over 5 years ago and is now looking to pass on the business due to the business being located over 30 miles from where he now lives.

Marrows Ltd prides itself on supplying reliable, locally sourced fresh fruit and vegetables to both domestic homes, wholesale and those visiting their newly refurbished production unit in Nailsworth.

We are advised there are 40 trade accounts receiving weekly deliveries.

Trade accounts include -

  • Pubs
  • Restaurants
  • Cafes
  • Nursing homes
  • Takeaways
  • Schools
  • Office
During the COVID pandemic, many of the trade accounts had to stop or decrease their normal orders which pushed our client to further develop his fruit and veg boxes, prepared for the domestic market.

These boxes include -

  • Build a Box - allows customers to choose their own combination
  • Fruit Box - mixed selection ranging from £15-£30
  • Seasonal Veg, Salad and Fruit Box - mixed selection ranging from £15 - £30
  • Soup Box - large box of all required ingredients £16
  • Grazing Box - raw snacking £17.50
  • Potato Sacks - £11- £17.50
  • Juicing Oranges - £20
  • Heritage Tomato Box - £20
  • Edible Flowers - £3.25
  • String Garlic - £7.50
  • Free Range Eggs - £1.40- - £1.70
  • Gloucestershire Honey
** The above boxes are available for domestic delivery, wholesale customers or walk in customers.

Key selling points -

  • New website with online ordering facility (similar cost of £5-7,000)
  • Excellent customer reviews
  • Facebook page - 1037 likes
  • Instagram page - 293 followers
  • High demand for locally produced fruit & veg
  • Ideal 'lifestyle changing’ business opportunity
  • Recently refurbished storage/preparation unit
  • 3 x delivery vans included
  • Staff team in place
  • Lots of options to increase current sales
Very rarely do such charming businesses of this type with so much more growth potential become available in this beautiful area and we therefore strongly advise any potential buyer to make early enquiry to avoid any disappointment.

Further growth potential -

  • Increase domestic delivery customers
  • Add a new range of ‘complete meal’ boxes - potential partnering with a catering company could provide a very exciting new customer base (meal boxes similar to those available from HelloFresh)
  • Adding a cold drinks menu - including juices, ciders & wines
  • Increase current opening hours
  • Increase social media advertising
  • New leaflet drop - domestic & potential trade accounts
The following is included in the sale:

  • Website
  • 3x vans
  • Office equipment, printer, desks etc

Combined Value - in the region of £25-30,000
