|Competition:||The business enjoys high levels of repeat business, word of mouth recommendations and referrals, however it could benefit from a more strategic medium/long term sales and marketing campaign. It has very minimal internet presence to date but does occasionally undertake some direct advertising via mailshots. It also appears in local directories.|
|Growth Potential:||The company has access to further product ranges and could easily expand this offering to incorporate even more products and services. A more proactive approach to sales and especially e-commerce would also improve performance. The business does have a basic yet informative website, which could possibly benefit from further development.
The business does very little in the way of retail and the vendor believes there is scope to develop retail sales of catering equipment to the general public. There is also demand for the sale of refurbished commercial equipment, another area that the vendor has not developed to date.|

Vendor may consider staying on for a further period as a consultant, or as an employed service/technical engineer should a new owner so require, subject to negotiation.|
