Hilton Smythe welcomes to the market A Burnham Fruiterers. The business was originally established by our clients in 2001. The owners are now looking to sell the business due to the desire to focus on other business interests.
The business runs as a traditional grocers offering fresh fruit and vegetables. The store also sells freshly made in store ice cream, this is very popular in the summer months for customers that visit the park across the road. The business runs from this store and provides a local delivery service.
The business generates an advised turnover of around £83,000 per annum. This is a great turnover however we feel the new owner could look to build contracts with commercial companies in order to receive some more repeat trade. The business receives a generous amount of trade from the locals in the area but could be boosted.
Included in the sale is an owner’s accommodation. This has been complete to a high standard and is ready to move into. This business would make a perfect opportunity for a partnership team looking to relocate.
The store is well supported in the area and the new owners will be highly welcomed. Hilton Smythe highly advise early viewing of this fantastic opportunity.
