Business History

Meridian Business Sales are delighted to offer to the market this wonderful freehold florist with 3 bedroom owners' accommodation that has been established by our client since 1979. The only reason this superb opportunity is being made available is due to our clients desire to take a well deserved retirement. Since establishing the business our client has built up a fabulous reputation and benefits from a high percentage of repeat and regular customers. We are advised of an annual turnover 151,975 with good gross profits which is derived from the sale of flowers and associated products. The business has a fabulous trading location and is the only florist in the town, there are a regular number of both commercial and private clients that use the business for their floristry needs including local hotels and funeral directors which provide a steady and reliable income into the business. A sign written van is included in the sales price to accommodate the business' increasingly popular delivery service. There is great scope for further improvement as the business currently does not have an internet site and only uses limited advertising providing any new owner very tangible options to increase upon a respectable turnover. This is a superb opportunity to purchase a long established and thriving business with a fabulous reputation in a true honey-pot trading position and as such early viewing is highly recommended as this business will not stay on the market for long.
