Overview

Please quote reference B06158

Hilton Smythe are delighted to bring to the market a thriving and long-standing floristry business with an enviable reputation. The business was established by our client 17 years ago and is only now for sale as our client wishes to spend time with family overseas.

One of the best florists in the south, and florist of choice for many businesses in the local area, our client has a contract with a large multi-site funeral director, is house florist for two prestigious luxury hotels and preferred supplier for the area’s top wedding venue.

The sale of the business includes the following -

  • Website (supported - hire)
  • Till (own) & card readers (hire)
  • Sign-written 2019 van (hire)
  • Social media accounts
  • Several florist related URLs
  • Counter and work tops
  • Display units and shelves
The business has a strong online presence: an attractive and efficient ecommerce site, outstanding Google reviews, and an excellent following across social media platforms.

We feel there is Scope to Improve: -

  • Extending the delivery area for online orders to 10 miles (7 miles currently) to take in three significant towns.
  • Joining a relay network such as Interflora to grow web orders.
  • Making better use of tools on Facebook and Instagram to extend reach.
  • Attending more wedding fairs in the area (current owners attend one per year)
Reasons to purchase:

  • A well-established business with an outstanding reputation, great brand recognition and many repeat clients.
  • Ideal owner-managed or partnership business with real growth potential.
  • A real Lifestyle opportunity, offering an ambitious new owner the chance to prosper in a thriving community.
  • Current owner is happy to offer a handover to ensure the continued success of the business.
Rarely do such highly rated, well-known, and well-located businesses come to the market, so early viewing is highly recommended.

Turnover
We are advised as per the 2019 accounts, the business generated a turnover in the region of £160,000. Full financials can be made available upon further request.
