TRADING INFORMATION

What The Scoop is an award winning dessert and ice cream parlour. The business is very successful with a high level of repeat business. The owners have developed the brand to enable it to be franchised. This is a rare opportunity for someone looking to purchase an established business with the option to rapidly expand via franchising. The business also has an impressive social media following.

The current owners have decided to sell the business due to a change in circumstance, thus creating an exciting self-employment opportunity. We have been advised the business is currently trading with a sale in excess of £5,000 per 5 day week. This figure is predicted to rise over the summer period. Proof of sales will be made available to seriously interested parties post viewing stage. The business including stock, fixtures and fittings is available to purchase for a capital sum of £40,000.  There may be scope to purchase the brand including the franchise agreement which includes the franchising pack, and full training.

The subjects are available to lease on a full repairing and insuring basis, for a term to be agreed, at a rent of £7,800 per annum. Full quoting terms are available upon request. Alternatively, there is also the option to purchase the freehold property for £50,000.
