Falcon Commercial is delighted to offer for sale this extremely well presented wholesale delivery and Cash & Carry business which occupies a prime trading position on one of Gloucester's main trading estates. It has been under the proud ownership of our client since 2002 during which time they have made considerable investment in establishing the area's premier supplier of packaging products as well as food and drink to caterers. It is now being placed on the market due to the owner's ill health. During our client's stewardship the business has built up an excellent reputation for its good selection of products as well as great service.

Imperial Food and Packaging enjoys a central trading position with ample free car parking. This thriving business is primarily operated as wholesale delivery business with a fleet of 10 delivery vehicles as well as a rapidly growing cash and carry. The business supplies many of the takeaway shops in the south west delivering to Worcester, South Wales, Bristol, Cheltenham and Gloucester.

Imperial Food and Packaging is run by our client with help from a dedicated team of full and part time staff. It generates a turnover in the region of £4,100,000 per year with healthy gross profit margins. There is tremendous potential to increase the turnover possibly by running a modest marketing campaign, expanding the delivery area or by extending the opening hours to include Sundays or one or two evenings per week.

This rarely available opportunity is not to be missed and early negotiations with Falcon Commercial come highly recommended
