Hilton Smythe are delighted to offer to the market C H Wakeling, a thriving family Butchers and Deli business first established in this area in 1952 and purchased by our client in 2011 who is now selling due to retirement.
The business is currently split 70% traditional butcher sales with 30% coming from the growing deli, outside catering and country cooks side.
The business is extremely fortunate to have a much sought after first floor flat which rental income covers majority of the £15,000 yearly business rent making this an extremely low-cost opportunity.
The renowned butchers is proud to serve superbly prepared meat not available in supermarkets with traditional cuts no longer available on the shelves of the larger stores. The choice of quality meats come from 100% traceable animals that have been properly treated and fed.
Our clients make their own sausages, burgers, pies as well as preparing BBQ meats for parties, weddings and events. There are currently 10-12 Catering accounts delivering to pubs, restaurants and a farm shop.
The growing deli side includes:
• Its own ‘Country Cooks’ brand of delicious home cooked ready meals
• Local cheeses
• Artisan pies
• Scotch eggs
• Sausage rolls
• Cooked meats
• Cooking sauces
• Large menu of outside catering options from small buffet to larger wedding events
Any new buyer may look to expand the business by growing the deli side or offering a sit-down space to enjoy the range of deli products or developing the website to enable online ordering which in this area is becoming extremely popular and could easily add a further 40% to turnover.
There is an excellent website included in the sale which could be further developed to increase the online ordering side of the business.
Due to the affluent location, rented flat and business options, early viewing is highly recommended.
Th flat income come also be increased from the £985 pcm to around £1,150 if required.More details Share on twitter
