DESCRIPTION
This is an excellent opportunity to purchase a very well established wholesale supplier of cooked meat products, which also offers an outside catering business with excellent potential for future growth. The business occupies a prominent town centre trading position in a very highly rated, popular area of Ashburton in Devon, located less than a minute away from the main A38 Devon link road.

JC Hams (South West) Limited is located on a small estate just a few minutes' walk from the town centre of Ashburton, close to a large number of quality residential dwellings, schools and other large and small businesses within the immediate locality. The business occupies a single storey building. The business has 2 main aspects to it, these being, the wholesale supply of cooked meats and an outside catering business. There is also excellent scope to offer a retail arm at the premises, offering potential for enhanced profits locally.

The current owners purchased the business in 1998, having been established 10 years prior by the previous owners, who have developed it to its current potential and now feel they are ready for retirement. The business is briefly described below.

JC Hams (South West) Limited offer a quality service upon a wholesale basis to clients within a 100 mile radius. Their client base extends to over 90 regular trade clients with many more upon a seasonal basis, Easter to October. Clients include deli shops, public houses, hotels and many more. In addition, the business offers some outside catering to specialist functions which could be expanded.

The products are based around quality and therefore there are no competitors in the area who offer this same quality. The business produces succulent hams, chickens and their own range of pork pies and beef joints.

JC Hams (South West ) Limited operates from a single storey factory and is totally self contained. There is the potential that the vendor may relocate the factory to larger premises, which does indeed offer a retail store in anticipation of the sale.


Catering
JC Hams (South West) Limited offer a small amount of outside catering for perfect wedding days and specialist events. They offer a selection of their quality products to specialist events and charity outlets. This represents only a small aspect of the business and has excellent potential for the new owners to expand upon this.

JC Hams (South West) Limited is a thriving and lucrative business, which is run by the owners and up to 2 members of staff, and offers two businesses in one with excellent potential to expand the business further. 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 stock already on offer.

The business would also be of interest to competitors and suppliers alike, who want their own production facilities or to add new products to their existing portfolio.

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