Butchers for Sale

Don’t believe the hype – there may be a lot of noise around veganism, but the overwhelming majority of the country still loves to eat meat. A whopping 86% of the population still eats meat in their diets. As long as people are eating meat, the UK high-street still needs butchers. And as long as entrepreneurs are looking for exciting new opportunities, there’s going to be butchers for sale. 

With high demand for quality cuts of meat and fresh poultry, a top-tier butcher shop can easily become the pillar of its community. While the supermarket sells pre-cut meat and pre-packaged poultry, butchers are celebrated for bringing the high-quality option, cutting meat right in front of the customer. If you bring your passion for premium meat and match it with excellent customer service, a butcher shop can represent a lucrative business opportunity. 

But it’s not just fresh meat for sale, today’s butchers can specialise in homemade pies, cured goods and even eggs and milk. As well as supplying individual customers, butchers will also accept orders for trade customers. This includes supply for hotels, restaurants, pubs and canteens. For these reasons, demand for proper meat and poultry will always be high. While business is steady year-round, you’ll enjoy significant seasonal peaks in demand for Christmas and Easter.

Have a look at our butchers for sale listings – we’re confident that we’ll have the prime opportunity to meet your new business needs. And once you do, why not contact one of our advisors to discuss the next steps?
