Business comes with
Online ordering App
Strong social media following
Decades of trading loyalty.
Ongoing catering contracts within the airport. Nothing complicated just a continual revenue stream that has been in place for 7 years.
And essentially a business moat. No one can come on and set up any catering facilities so you have the business park to feed. It is a unique situation. It has a protected location and is set for continued growth.

Any buyer needs a reasonable knowledge of catering, however training can be factored in.
You would need to have your eyes set on growth
With over 300 businesses on the business park and the population swelling year on year this business is ideally primed to expand, extend relationships for in-house / satellite operations / contract catering arrangements / buffet meetings - in flight catering. There is a lot of scope for development.

In the last 30 years this has been sold just once. It is genuinely a rare opportunity. We have not been immune to the Covid situation, we closed for a few weeks in April, then reopened at the end of April and traded straight through. We were initially 20% down on revenue. This did not last long. We are now the busiest we have been in our trading history.
The world of catering is pivoting, the high street is faltering, retail is migrating to business parks for warehousing and online distribution.
When it comes to catering this location is unique, thriving and ultimately perfectly positioned for the way the world is shifting.
