Hilton Smythe is delighted to present to the market R.C Roland & Son Butchers/ The Artisan Bacon Company, a very well-respected butchers business established by our client’s family in 1904.
The traditional freehold property includes a fully equipped butchers business/office to the ground floor while the second floor offers a spacious 2 bedroomed flat, ideal as new owners’ accommodation or additional letting income.
The business is now reluctantly being sold due to ill health.
The business is split between the sale of locally sourced meats, homemade sausages, award winning pies, poultry and dairy, cooked meats and deli items while the recently added artisan bacon side offers smoked, dry and sweet cured bacon which has proved to be extremely popular.
There is a very loyal local customer base including an impressive list of local businesses, hotels and public houses, restaurants, cafes and delicatessens.
Our client has also developed a new ‘click and collect’ service throughout the pandemic which is continuing to add extra sales to this previously mainly retail focused business.
The Artisan Bacon Company has added a new and very exciting element to the business, our client has developed a new range of individual bacon available to order through its online website. The choices include - Canny Bacon, Credence Bacon, Pilgrims Bacon and Traditional Northumbrian Oak Smoked Back Bacon.
We believe this part of the business is a major selling point of this butchers and gives it a significant platform for further expansion. Mail order for good quality meats/bacon is in high demand due to the re-focus by consumers to support local businesses like this.
We are advised the business is split 60% wholesale and 40% retail.
Very rarely do freehold butchers of this location, size or number of trading goodwill ever come on to the open market and we therefore strongly recommend early viewing to avoid disappointment.
