Our client has owned the business for approx 1 year and has seen it grow in that time to a level that is beyond his own personal expectations or requirements and is choosing to sell the business on because basically it is getting too busy for him and is seeking a more sedate style of life. Takings are often touching £10,000 per week and will this year show £250,000 inc vat projecting £400,000 for the following year on a sales split of 35% Wet to 65% Dry. The resulting GPs should be extremely robust due to the high level and mark up of the wine business.
OUR ADVICE, GET IN BEFORE THIS BUSINESS TAKES OFF AS IT WILL DO WITH AN ENERGETIC FOCUSED OWNER WHO IS TRADE SAVVY
