Description:      The character cottage style premises are attractively appointed and have been fitted out to an excellent specification, with attractive display shelving showing off the enormous and varied range of jarred sweets.

The business predominantly operates as a sweet shop but also makes the most of the prominent position by offering hot & cold drinks, both to take away and to enjoy on the premises with space for tables outside, ice cream, liquorice and local produce such as honey and preserves, and has gained an enviable reputation with an ever expanding and loyal customer base.

                        The business also provides an excellent opportunity to expand into other areas of operation such as a coffee and cake shop/ café or perhaps a dessert shop, particularly given the prominent location, and also with the potential to supply events such as weddings and parties.

                        The business does not currently have a huge online presence, instead relying on its long established reputation and prominent position, however this is an area which provides exceptional potential for growth with a website and social media advertising.

Accounting information can be made available following on from viewing.

 

Business:          There is also an opportunity to acquire The Fudge Kitchen which currently operates inside the third unit. The Fudge Kitchen which trades as The Real Fudge Company manufactures and supplies an extensive range of delicious fudge made to an original recipe in a wide variety of flavours.

                        This again provides a huge area for growth, with the potential to supply local shops and tourist destinations, and to provide for events such as weddings and parties as well as stocking the sweet shop for sale directly to customers. The current set-up allows customers to see the fudge being made which has proved highly popular over the years, and provides excellent scope to run events from the premises.

                        Please contact our office for further information on this opportunity, which also provides franchise opportunities.

 

Lease:              The premises are made up of three separate units, two being rented together with the end unit being in addition. The rent for the double unit is payable at £625 per calendar month, and the additional single unit is payable at £333.33 per calendar month.
