THE BUSINESS

Our vendor client operates this superb business on a full time basis with the assistance of 1 full time and 4 part time/casual staff. Trade is currently derived from approximately 60% wet and 40% food sales and whilst emulating the current business model; there is still immense potential for a new full time hands-on owner operator partnership with previous experience of running a catering orientated operation to take the business to the next level by exploiting the obvious food potential that is to be found here. There are many additional areas of potential to increase sales and profitability by implementing a strategic marketing campaign to utilise the premises for private parties, wakes and functions etc which would have a direct positive effect on the turnover and profits. Turnover figures are available on request. In our opinion with the above areas of potential we would quite easily expect fully focussed and fully committed operators to achieve a turnover well in excess of £400,000 (incl. VAT).
Accounting information will be made available to interested parties after viewing.
