DESCRIPTION
This is an excellent opportunity to purchase a very well established delicatessen, take away, café and outside catering business with excellent potential for future growth. Occupying a prominent centre of town trading position in a very highly rated, popular area of Shepton Mallet in Somerset, close to the tourist areas of Glastonbury, the City of Wells, the Royal Bath and West Showground, Bath and Bristol and the M4 motorway.

Peppers is located on a prominent pedestrianised position in the town close to a large number of quality residential dwellings, schools and other large and small businesses within the immediate locality. The business occupies 2 shop units owned by the same landlord who has specially developed the site and made the two into one. The business has 3 main aspects to it, these being, the delicatessen, the café and an outside catering business.

The current owners established the business in 2007 and have developed it to its current potential and now feel they have taken the business as far as they can. So as not to hold back the business they have opted to reluctantly sell. The businesses are briefly described below.

Delicatessen
Peppers has a large deli counter which is stocked with a good selection of cows, sheep and goats cheeses, many locally produced which complement their assortment of crackers and biscuits. Peppers offer a wide range of olives and antipastos, local kettle ham, home roasted joints and continental meats and salamis.
Their large range of salads are all freshly made at Peppers, as are most of their savouries and cakes.

Other products include free-range bubble'n'squeak, scotch eggs or a brie and bacon sausage rolls, a large list of sandwich fillings for baps, ciabattas and wraps, along with a daily homemade soup. The shop has shelves full of wholefoods, dry fruits and nuts, pulses and speciality flours; a large selection of teas, coffee substitutes, and ethnic ingredients.

Peppers also carry a large range of Ecovers ecological household products as well as providing a refill service and a small range of toiletries, alternative medicines and supplements.


In the gifts section, peppers stock unusual dressings and oils, chutneys and jams, and local fruit wines, as well as spirits, liqueurs and apple juices, fudges and chocolates and are a licenced alcohol seller.

Café
Peppers offers a comprehensive selection of breakfast and lunchtime dishes for both vegetarians and meat-eaters, with homemade cakes and sandwiches served throughout the day.

Peppers are well known for cream teas which are available all year, and consist of a large homemade scone with local clotted cream and a selection of quality jams.

Their menu also presents local ales, water and apple juices and award-winning jams, chutneys and dressings which are all available to buy in the shop. Peppers offer an extensive menu for both gluten-free and dairy-free diners.

Peppers cafe is available for hosting large private functions.
Currently licensed for serving alcohol.

Catering
Peppers offer outside catering for wedding days and specialist events. They can offer anything from a traditional three course meal, cold or hot buffet, quaint English tea or an informal reception.

Peppers have a comprehensive list of canapés and sandwiches for finger buffets or retro classics for something different each designed to satisfy your guests day or night

Peppers is a thriving and lucrative business, which is run by the owners and up to 3 part-time members of staff. Offering 3 businesses in 1 - the very best delicatessen, café and catering services for the local community and tourists alike, and reaching further afield via the well-established website. The business offers excellent scope for future growth and improvement and would therefore ideally suit an ambitious and energetic couple or individual that have the opportunity to extend and add to the scope already on offer at Peppers. These enhancements will undoubtedly increase the already impressive weekly sales whilst also enabling the additional staffing levels to be kept to a minimum therefore maximising overall profitability.

This is a first class, high turnover, business opportunity and viewing is therefore highly recommended to avoid disappointment.
