EM&F East Anglia are delighted to bring to the market for the first time in 25 years our clients catering manufacturing business which specialises in the production of sandwiches, paninis, wraps and rolls supplied to outlets across Norfolk and Suffolk regions.
With a wide range of regular clients covering shops, garages and tourist attractions coupled with one off lunch platters for local businesses and training providers, a solid base is provided and gives good opportunity from which to expand the business further.
The business itselfThe sandwich industry is now worth a staggering £5.6bn a year according to leading analysts with the traditional sandwich seeing growth in both value (2.8%) and volume (4.2%) and is bought by 54.4% of the UK population. It is easy to understand then why our client's business continues to enjoy turnover in excess of £300k with the high profit margins one would expect from such an operation. As one of the leading independent manufacturers in the region there is much potential for the future expansion of the business. It also offers the opportunity for both an established company to incorporate the business and their clients into their existing organisation or indeed for a new person looking to move into this particular area of the catering industry.
The business is capable of doubling production from its existing premises. This demonstrates the ability for the business to grow with the possibility for providing an outside catering service, sandwich vans and office deliveries being just a few of the ideas that could be looked at. With a loyal staff team, the business is run efficiently and smoothly which will enable a new owner to focus on the development of the company.
