CoGoGo is delighted to present to the market Michael’s Butchers, a high quality butchers business with over 30 years successful trading history.

The ‘turn-key’ opportunity is now being made available due to our clients decision to now retire, however he has confirmed a full business handover period will be offered to allow the smooth transition of this much loved community business.

Michael’s Butchers only offers the finest cuts of meat.

The current menu includes -

  • Prepared Beef, Pork, Lamb, Venison Joints

  • Lamb Chops, Noisettes, Pork Belly Plaits, Rib Eye Steaks

  • Venison Cannons, Diced Venison, Game Mix, Pork Parcels

  • Pork Spare Ribs, Minced Lamb, Beef Kebabs

  • Stuffed & Rolled Goose, New Season Pheasants, Chicken Ballotines

  • Homemade Burgers & Sausages, Sticky Maple Syrup Kebabs

  • Dry Cured Smoked & Unsmoked Bacon,

  • Local Cheeses, Cured Deli Meats, Scotch Eggs

Michael’s Butcher supplies both its very loyal domestic customers as well as a chosen number of catering accounts.

We are advised the sales are split 70% from walk in customers and 30% catering clients.

The business makes approximately 1,000lb (453kg) of Sausages a week in the summer, as well as making their own dry cured Bacon, Gammon Joints and Gammon Steaks. The business also has a very busy burger trade, and our client has invested in labour saving machinery.
