The business is currently operated from our clients home in the Northwest, over a 25 hour 5-day week. It is running very flexibly at present to fit around the owner’s personal commitments, however the demand is certainly there to grow the business even more, should a new owner wish to. This could be done by adding themselves onto local sales platforms, creating a website, offering a UK wide delivery service, and taking on staff to help make orders.
No property included as the business is currently being run from our client’s home.
