Business History
Meridian Business Sales are pleased to offer to the market this ice cream sales and wholesale and catering business which was established by our client in 1975. Our client is reluctantly offering this well established business to the market their desire to take well deserved retirement. Since the business was established out client has invested time and money in the business and premises to the point where it is in full walk in condition and has continually introduced new lines and income streams which have enhanced the business massively. Our client informs us that they currently generate a respectable annual turnover, which is derived from supplying ice cream and related products to surrounding areas including shops. Our client has contracts to sell ice cream and catering to two large parks and informs us he sells at Blackburn Rovers fc and grass roots football clubs. The business has a street trader license for Blackburn and Darwen and the business sells ice creams and caters - hot and cold food at town centre events which he has established over the years and has valuable contracts with local schools with advance bookings throughout 2017. The business enjoys a strong reputation within the local community, schools and town and as such has a high level of regular and repeat trade. There is potential to create a professional website which may increase income.
