However, there is great scope to expand this already thriving business if the new owner so wishes. Currently the business has one refrigerated van covering areas in Yorkshire including Pontefract, Wetherby, Selby and York and another van supplying Leeds, Doncaster and Hull. Introducing a further van and extending the delivery area to a wider field would generate further income. Furthermore, there is the potential to introduce a website to promote the businesses assets and an e-commerce function to allow on-line sales.

Not only will the buyer be gaining a well-established and reputable business, they will also personally benefit from the gorgeous location and picturesque countryside themselves. With a glowing reputation, exciting potential for expansion and impressive profits, this is a great investment for anyone looking for a business in the food and drink wholesale industry.
