Property Description

Full description

A fantastic opportunity to acquire an established dual outlet ice cream business in West Cornwall. The sale will include a comprehensive training and handover process and an extensive amount of equipment.

Location/Business - Mr B's Ice Creams is one of the most instantly recognisable brands within the harbourside town of Hayle with the original shop being established on Penpol Terrace some 10 years ago. The business enjoyed many years of significant growth and it was decided to expand the trading potential through the addition of a second outlet which is located on Market Square and indeed the Ice Cream is currently produced from this shop for both of the outlets.

Hayle has a resident population of approximately 10,000 and has a number of holiday parks within the immediate vicinity and is close to the cosmopolitan harbourside town of St Ives and the glorious surfing beaches at nearby Gwithian both of which attract hundreds of thousands of visitors to the region each year.

Mr B's has been in the direct ownership and control of our clients family since its inception and they enjoy a loyal customer base from not only within the immediate area but also repeat visits from holiday makers year on year. All of the ice creams are produced on site with the business currently being concerned with retail sales only and it is felt that owing to the consistently high levels of enquiries from other outlets within the area that a wholesale element could be added to the business to expand the turnover further but as our clients now wish to step away from the business owing to family and other business commitments this is an avenue that they have to date not explored.

In addition to offering an extensive range of ice creams (in excess of 300 flavours) our clients also produce to ice cream cakes for special occasions and a comprehensive training package will be included with the transfer of the business and goodwill.

Both shops are well equipped with top of the range ice cream display/conservators, blast freezers etc with the Market Square premises also benefitting from the ice cream making machines, pasteurisers etc.

Turnover for the year ending 31st December 2015 was £173,496 with full accounting information being made available to prospective purchasers subject to a viewing appointment in the usual manner.
