Established Charcoal Manufacturer and Distributor

South East

Advert ref: 2030SH

A rare opportunity to acquire an established and well known charcoal brand with excellent ethical sourcing and manufacturing credentials.
The restaurant grade charcoal is made from British trees from sustainable woodland and compliant with the strict Grown in Britain standard. As such it is the chosen product for many renowned chefs and restaurants and carries the endorsement of many well known names in the industry.

As a result of this the business is now a well known and respected brand with sales reaching throughout the country via web sales but also through national corporate clients.

It would make a great stand-alone business acquisition, but it would also be a fantastic opportunity for and existing business who perhaps already operates on the fringes of this sector, or perhaps within the supply chain and with the warehousing space required to relocate the business to.

Key features:

  • Established and respected brand
  • Enviable nationwide customer base
  • Robust supply chain in place for raw material and finished products
  • Strong social media presence with nearly 20,000 followers
  • In-house manufacturing with additional capacity providing scope to expand
  • Not location specific and could be operated anywhere in the UK
  • Fantastic potential as stand-alone or bolt-on business

Property Details: Leasehold
Asking Price: £1,000,000 (Leasehold)

The business is currently located in the home counties but could easily be relocated anywhere in the UK without detriment to the business as most sales are either on-line or to a national customer base.

Premises Details:

The business currently operates from leased premises on an informal arrangement with only 3 months notice required to terminate this arrangement. It is therefore expected that the purchaser would already have suitable premises or look to secure an alternative.

The current premises is approximately 3,000 square feet, with the kiln outside the unit and it can be operated either inside or out. If the kiln and therefore the manufacturing was to be taken inside the total area required would be in the order of 5 to 6,000 square feet.

Relocatable: Yes
Reason For Selling:
The current owners personal circumstances have changed and he now wishes to divert more attention to other business interests.
