Trading hours:The vendor now works 5 days a week at a pace to suit his own lifestyle and he is ably assisted by any one of 4 sub contractors as customer demand dictates
Home based: This business can be run from home.
Relocatable: This business can be relocated.
Location:The business is based from the vendor’s home in Essex and a new owner will need to relocate the business elsewhere, either to their own home or to their business premises.
Expansion potential:This is already a well established and very profitable concern, which still offers excellent scope to increase both sales and profits further by: 1. Not using so many sub contractors, which could save circa £30k per annum 2. Ideal bolt-on business for an existing company/operator in the refrigeration industry, or for a player in the food/drinks sector 3. Marketing and advertising, as very little is done at present 4. Maintain a fully optimised website and introduce social media sites and blogs
