Business Description

This business originally started over 30 years ago and specialised in supplying the gourmet and fresh food market with an exceptional array of products that would have been hard to find in one location anywhere else in Adelaide. The business is in effect a grocery store that only supplies gourmet foods. The products are of the highest possible quality with many ready-made meals of restaurant quality which are prepared onsite.

Many of the products sold are “value added products” and are exclusive to this business which allows the products to be sold at exceptional margins that supermarkets simply can not achieve. This is the opportunity for a buyer or a family to acquire a high turnover fresh food business that is unique with very limited serious competition. This opportunity will not come up again for decades.
