Falcon Commercial is delighted to offer for sale this extremely well presented supplier of Fish and Shellfish to both trade and retail customers. The business occupies a prime trading position on a modern industrial estate in one of Dorset’s most popular towns. This well known company was set up un the 1980’s and has been under the proud ownership of our clients since 2013 during which time they have made considerable investment in establishing the area’s premier supplier of fish not only from West Country Ports but from those throughout the UK. It is now being placed on the market as the owners wish to retire. During our client’s stewardship the business has built up an excellent reputation for its good selection of products as well as great service.
Our client’s business enjoys a central trading position and is primarily operated as wholesale delivery business with a fleet of 3 delivery vehicles as well as a having a retail counter which is very popular with local customers. Fresh fish can be prepared to customers’ requirements and a wide selection of frozen fish is always in stock. The business supplies many of the restaurants, pubs and shops in the south west delivering mainly to Weymouth, Honiton, Dorchester and Poole.
This fantastic opportunity is run by our client with help from a dedicated team of full and part time staff. It generates a turnover in the region of £772,000 per year with healthy gross profit margins. There is tremendous potential to increase the turnover possibly by running a modest marketing campaign, expanding the delivery area or by extending the opening hours to include Sundays.
This rarely available opportunity is not to be missed and early negotiations with Falcon Commercial come highly recommended
