Business History

Meridian Business Sales are delighted to offer to the market this superb delicatessen and chicken barbecue business which has been established for over 40 years and has been in the capable hands of our client for the past 18 months. The only reason this superb business is being offered to the market is due to our clients desire to take a well deserved retirement. During our clients stewardship they have increased turnover and spent time and money on upgrading the businesses facilities where it now presents a true turnkey opportunity for any new prospective purchaser. Our clients advise us an annual turnover of 358,800 with good gross profits derived from the sale of general delicatessen produce, cooked meats, hot sandwiches and the very popular chicken barbecue side of the business. The business has a fantastic location in Preston's indoor market hall enjoying high levels of passing trade but also from high levels of repeat trade due to our client's reputation for providing quality food and service in the local area. The business currently has no website and does no advertising providing great scope for any prospective purchaser. This is a superb opportunity to purchase a thriving business with great potential for improvement on turnover and as such early viewing is strongly recommended.
