Business History

Meridian Business Sales are pleased to offer to the market this owner operated furniture and design business which was established by our client in 1998. Only now is the business reluctantly being offered to the market, due our clients desire to concentrate on other business interests. Since the business was established our client has invested time and money in the business and premises to the point where it is in full walk in condition. Currently the business is run at a pace that suits our client’s lifestyle meaning there is massive scope for a new hands on owner operator to further develop the business by increasing trading hours, offering online sales and updating the current website which may increase income. Our client informs us that the annual turnover currently runs at £25,000 with a gross profit of £20,000 which is derived from making beautiful bespoke furniture in all styles, in virtually any material, working from designs provided by both commercial and private clients. Our client enjoys a strong reputation within the local community and with commercial businesses throughout the Midlands and as such has a high level of regular and repeat trade. The business enjoys very low overheads with a rent of just £3,600 pa. The business is easy to run and is currently owner operated; our client is happy to provide training during the transition period. This is a superb opportunity to purchase a premium business in a truly tranquil and idyllic location and as such early viewing is strongly recommended to appreciate the location and potential of the business.
