Hilton Smythe is delighted to present to the market Spoons of Dorset a fantastic, extremely popular dessert business based in the lovely town of Blandford Forum.

The 5* reviewed business is now being offered to the market due to our client’s ill health, however our client is still happy to offer a 1-month handover period.

Spoons of Dorset is well known in the area, with customers traveling far and wide for the well-known deserts, milkshakes, hot drinks, and many more tasty treats! Providing organic, fair-trade tea & coffee. working with local dairy suppliers and bakeries to source the freshest, highest quality offerings. Serving award winning Purbeck Ice-cream & Forest Edge Gelaleto ice cream. They serve their ice creams in Italian waffle cones or tubs of ice cream.

The business also serves bubble waffles which aren't sold any where in the area with ice cream, sprinkles and sauces, pancakes with ice cream, sauces and sprinkles, banana splits, ice cream sundaes and knickerbocker glory desserts. The business benefits from having its own Mr Whippy ice cream machine.

The business generates a turnover in the region of £47,000 per annum. This is an exceptional business with further scope to increase the already healthy turnover. We feel that the purchaser could look to offer an outside catering service. This would be fantastic for children’s parties, weddings, birthdays, and other private functions. Deliveries to the local area could also be a great asset to the shop.

The business advertises its services on the business Facebook page. This is regularly updated and has over 1,835 followers. The business also has a website, this is easy to use and looks presentable. (www.spoonsofdorset.co.uk)
