Business description

turner butler are delighted to be appointed as sole selling agents for this exciting business opportunity which has never been brought to the market for sale before. This business offering is an absolute gem. Laid out, as it is, over 7 acres of beautiful leicestershire countryside, this two generation family run business has been trading successfully for over 17 years, by fully utilizing the 30+ years of horticultural experience in the family. This business has been run with much skill, dynamism and love of the business – and it shows! from the very first seconds of arrival at the wide road frontage site, the operation has great impact and is very well tended and cared for, with lovely colours and displays. Sometimes there may be a poster on the entrance gate linking their activities to others in the community. This type of link typifies the warm and friendly approach to business that flows from the family to all the staff. The business offers a lot more than its wide variety of plants etc. And provides a one stop shop type of experience for all its regular customers and families, who seem to drink in the ambience of this very well run business. The site has been nicely laid out with 3 x large glasshouses and 7 x polytunnels, plus storage shed, office/ canteen and a 2 bedroom park home, currently resided in by father and mother (both still actively involved on a daily basis). The site also has planning permission for construction of a 3 bedroom 2 storey chalet type house, plus enlargement of the glasshouse and polytunnel areas. It should be noted at this stage that this business has traded at much higher profitability and turnover levels in recent years, but they have found in recent times that their activities in the wholesale side of the trade have impacted greatly on their profits. This situation is now very much in hand, and will reflect in future trading figures. In summary, a great lifestyle type of opportunity with a great deal of scope for growth and development in the future. This business has been sensibly priced to encourage an early and uncomplicated sale, therefore, early inspection is recommended and invited. Equipment: the company owns and maintains a large inventory of assets, used in the daily operation of the business. The main items include:- • 1 x 64ft. X 120ft polytunnel • 2 x 50ft. X 50ft. Glasshouses • 1 x 110ft. X 42ft. Glasshouse • 6 x 24ft. X 120ft. Polytunnels • 1 x 40ft x 40ft. Storage shed • 1 x portakabin type office/ canteen • 1 x 2 bedroom park home customer service: reputation and high levels of customer service are self evident here, with the attendant high levels of repeat customer business and word of mouth recommendation. Key strengths: the key strengths of this business must surely be its very well presented location, its traditional business formula, where customers are made to feel very welcome and almost like family members, and its apparent close links to the local community. Growth and expansion: growth and expansion should take care of themselves through the increased profitability brought back from relinquishing wholesale activities. Key opportunities: the key opportunities here are clearly based in the planning permissions already in place for expanding the business and the living accommodation.
