BUSINESS
Hilton Smythe welcomes to the market Adrian Curtis Family Butchers Ltd. For Sale due to the wish for a well-earned retirement. This long standing and profitable family butchers business has been in the village for decades. Based on good old fashioned customer service, and local butchery with a smile the business enjoys a huge repeat customer base within a 10 mile radius.

Long established and locally renowned for many years, Adrian Curtis is a traditional and highly skilled butchery business offering a full range of cuts, meats and associated condiments, with several locally sourced products. Famed for its 'Hog Roast' outside catering facility (for sale by way of separate negotiation) the business is well respected via its online feedback and reviews, and carries a 5 star hygiene rating.

Founded by an older family member in the 1960's the business has served the local community for decades, has much history and also provides many local operators such as pubs and restaurants with quality meats.

Run at a pace to suit the current operator and although decades of profitable success, there remains excellent scope and growth. The addition of a full online presence would be useful by way of a website, Facebook and social media pages, plus adding further outside catering or more provision to local businesses including deliveries.
