The business has been established for 31 years under three different owners. The current owner has owned the business for eight years increasing customer numbers, turnover and areas of sale (details on request). Good quality fresh fish is purchased from local markets with a range of frozen products also sold. After ill health issues the owner now wishes to retire and has reduced the business to a part-time operation, however, this could be easily reversed with lots of opportunities for business development.

The business operates from a 2013 Mercedes VITO long wheel base vehicle. The interior was designed in consultation with the owner and includes a display trough to carry ice and fresh fish, display shelving, freezer compartment, storage racks, working and filleting surface and utility area.

The main day-to-day nature of the business involves door-to-door delivery to a regular customer base across villages and towns with a regular pitch in a busy market town. There are also a number of customers who require larger orders on an occasional or semi-regular basis. At Christmas and Easter, ready prepared meals and products are offered, these are made by an experienced and highly talented chef and this area could be expanded if required.

A professional website designed and hosted by a local company reflects the nature and extent of the business. Although this does not currently provide a direct online ordering and sales services this is something that could be developed. The business has also established a social media base including Facebook and Twitter.

The business comes with
• An existing regular income
• A fully equipped bespoke Mercedes van
• A large existing customer base
• A 5 star Evironmental Health certificate
• A professional website
• Facebook and Twitter accounts
• Fridge and freezer
• A range of small-scale equipment including scales, trays, labels etc
• Help and advice on current business and areas for further development
• Full set of accounts
• Paperwork on finance, environmental health, administration etc.

The current owner would be happy to discuss any aspect of the current business and areas of potential development.
