Ben N Zaks Superfresh Florist is situated within the very busy Coventry Retail Market in Coventry, West Midlands. The market was voted market of the year in 2007 and Britain's favourite market in 2010. The market is in the shopping centre of the city; therefore the business benefits from a high volume of footfall and customer loyalty.

Coventry is located within the West Midlands and it is the 10th largest city in England and the 13th largest UK city overall. The city is home to a unique selection of internationally renowned family friendly attractions, popular cafes, bars and quirky restaurants.

Hilton Smythe are delighted to welcome to the market this very busy and popular florist business in Coventry, West Midlands.

The business was originally established in 1958 and has been in our client's careful ownership since 1996. Only now is the business being offered to the market due to our client's desire to concentrate on other interests. The business operates 6 days per week and generates a turnover in the region of 60,000 per annum, with a good gross profit.

Our client offers a range of high quality flowers for all occasions both locally, nationally and internationally. Our client has experience in both contemporary and traditional designs for any occasion including birthdays, anniversaries and weddings, as well as tributes and sympathy flowers for funerals. The business is also an agent for E florist flower deliveries and are sought after by TV companies and celebrities.

The business has built up an enviable reputation within the area for the high quality of the goods and services offered, which has resulted in a very loyal client base, with a high volume of repeat trade and word of mouth recommendations.

We feel the turnover could be increased by embarking on a modest marketing campaign to promote the goods and services offered. A new owner could also develop the corporate side of the business to provide workplace flower arrangements etc. There is already a very informative website in place to advertise the business at Any new owner could also expand the business and trade as a greengrocer as well as a florist, the shop can also sell fruit and veg. The landlord has given permission for this .
