EQUIPMENT & STOCK
The asking price includes all stock, suppliers, forward bookings, facebook and equipment.
A full inventory will be provided by the sellers but includes the Candy Cart, Popcorn Machine, Candy Floss & Slush Machine, two wishing wells, 5ft illuminated chocolate fountain, two display carousels, two large drinks chillers, retro Coca cola fridge, American Till, three advertising 'A' boards, all catering equipment and all stock.
The business is currently run by a Mother and Daughter team between Monday & Saturday.
The current lease is £95.00 per week including water. There is a four year lease remaining but the landlord would happily agree a new length lease if required.
We have been advised that the retail turn over is a consistent £1,500 per week. The outside catering and equipment hire is currently approx £15,000 per year.
This business has got huge, further potential. The business has over 5000 followers on facebook (candiland) but hasn't got its own website. Online marketing for sweet and chocolate gift sets could prove lucrative, as would online marketing of the equipment hire and outside catering side of the business.
The room at the rear isn't currently being utilised, but the potential for an ice cream parlour or some form of food / children's party venue would, in our opinion, increase an already attractive turn over.
This really is an opportunity not to be missed, and the current owner is only selling due to her daughters change in circumstances.
