Not applicable

Sugazone is a ground floor retail lock up in a fabulous location with the benefit of storage and office space. Sugazone stocks a wide variety of confectionary to include Pic N Mix selection, retro sweets, homemade traditional sweets in jars and American imported sweets. Alongside these Sugazone also offers Marshfield’s Scoop ice cream, a large selection of milkshakes and smoothies all freshly prepared on site plus canned drinks again imported directly from America. Sugazone previously traded 9.30am – 6.30pm with a turnover of well over £100,000. However, due to family health issues the hours have been reduced to 10.30 – 5pm, seven days a week from Easter to October reducing to weekends for November and December. The owners choose to close for January and February. Due to this the business is now trading below the VAT threshold. Sugazone is operated by the owner with the assistance of a part time member of staff. The website, social media and online sales have currently been suspended therefore providing the next proprietor with huge potential to increase the current sales should they wish to.
