BUSINESS
Hilton Smythe welcomes to the market Flaming Good Fires Ltd. This family run business was originally established in 1956 and was taken over by our clients in 2010. The owner is now looking to sell the business, due to the desire to take a well-deserved retirement.

The business runs as a well-known fireplace shop on the outskirts of Bradford. They sell an excellent variety of gas and electric fires, our clients also offer servicing, however, most trade is retail and installation. The fitting and deliveries are sub-contracted to two fitters.

The store generates an advised turnover of around 255,000 per annum, with a gross profit of around 21%. This is an excellent turnover that has seen an increase over the last years. There were three fireplace businesses in the area, two of which have closed recently, allowing for a large amount of trade for Flaming Good Fires. Our clients have received a large amount of trade and have seen a huge increase in repeat loyal trade.

The business is very busy and the owners don't currently advertise. We feel there could be a larger increase in custom with a marketing and advertising campaign. The new owner could also look to set up contracts with local building contractors and developers in order to boost current repeat loyal trade.

This is a fantastic unopposed opportunity that is not to be missed. Hilton Smythe highly advise early viewing to take in the full potential of the trade.
