Business History

Meridian Business Sales are delighted to offer to the market this well known company which was established by our client 28 years ago. Today it includes outside catering and hire along with the production of sweet and savoury produce delivered weekly throughout the southwest. Our client is offering the business to the market due to a desire to retirement. Although the business has been running for 28 years and is well established, it continues to offer a new owner great business potential and even greater earnings. Our client inform us that annual turnover currently runs at 137,000 with a gross profit margin pf 40% which is derived from offering good quality food and service to a wide range of customers. The business enjoys a strong reputation within the local community and as such has a high level of regular and repeat business. This is a superb opportunity to purchase an established business, which is a great base to build upon and as such early viewing is highly recommended as businesses of this calibre rarely stay on the market for long.
