Trade is currently derived from circa 90% wet sales and 10% food sales and whilst emulating the current successful business model there is still tremendous potential for a new hands-on owner operator partnership to take this business to the next level by exploiting the obvious food potential and also focussing on a strategic marketing campaign to promote the business for private parties and wakes etc, for which there is huge demand for within the locale.
This is an extremely rare and outstanding opportunity for those seeking a lifestyle change or even an alternative career from the fast pace of London or even as an additional income stream whilst commuting.
