Hilton Smythe is delighted to welcome to the market this well-established and popular butchers business in Glasgow, Scotland. The business was established by our client in 1974 and is only now, reluctantly, being offered to the market due to our client`s wish for a well-deserved retirement. The business is open 5½ days per week and generates a healthy turnover in the region of £95,500 per annum, with a reported gross profit of approximately 41%. The turnover is generated from the sale of high quality fresh and cooked meats and pies. The business has an excellent reputation within the area for the high quality of produce on offer, as well as the excellent customer service offered. The business has a very loyal client base with a lot of repeat trade and word of mouth referrals. A new owner could embark on a small marketing campaign to advertise the business. We feel the business would also benefit from establishing a website to promote the produce on offer. This is an excellent opportunity for a new owner to take this already thriving family butchers 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: 8.00am - 5.00pm Tuesday: 8.00am - 1.00pm Wednesday: Saturday: 8.00am - 5.00pm Sunday: Closed
