Business History
Meridian Business Sales are delighted to offer for sale this superb delicatessen which has been established since 2003 and has been in the careful hands of our clients since 2007. Our clients are reluctantly offering the business to the market due to their desire to concentrate on other business interests. Since our clients took ownership of the business they have run the business at a pace that suits their lifestyle, meaning that there is massive scope for a new hands on owner operator to further develop the business. Our clients inform us that annual turnover currently runs at £71,305 which is derived from the sale of meats, cheeses, quiches, pies, pastries, soups, fresh rolls, baguettes, sandwiches and morning goods which are made on premises or homemade. The business has made a profit each year our clients have owned it which shows what their hard work and customer loyalty due to the unique products and excellent customer service can do even during the worst recession for the past 8 years. The business is unique as our client cooks and prepares everything they sell fresh and daily. The delicatessen is famous for the aberdeenangus minced steak lasagne and meatballs, our clients cakes and the fact that every order is made fresh to order in front of the customers. All of the Italian products are grade one only and are unique to our clients. The business enjoys a strong reputation within the local community and as such has a high level of regular and repeat trade. This business would ideally suit a husband and wife or partnership and could afford a good standard of living. This is a superb opportunity to purchase a premium business with massive scope to develop further. There are plans in place for 26 luxury flats to be built on the floors above the business, at some point in 2015. This will not affect the business, but will most likely bring more customers to the area. The business is doing extremely well and potential buyers can see this from the excellent TripAdvisor reviews. Although the business has been run at a pace to suit our clients lifestyle the customer base is there to increase income largely by extending hours, the outside catering and lots of other aspects of the business. An early viewing is highly recommended as businesses of this calibre rarely stay on the market for long.
