Business description

Tilly's is a 6 month old desserts delivery business offering evening/weekend desserts and milkshakes.Facebook page and website, customer and order records, stock, packaging, equipment included and reliable staff
There is huge potential to expand and grow this delightful business which is ready made for the right person to take it to its full potential. The owner is selling because of other business commitments and cannot give the business the full attention it requires to continue growth. The right person will be buying a business that has come through the first 6 months very well and is now ready to be grown and developed with a sound customer base and data of all customers new and old is available for email marketing etc. The menu has been developed for optimal time management, and puddings are simple to prepare and serve reducing staff expenses.
Tilly's is currently the only dessert only delivery business in the South Lakes area. We offer indulgent, irresistible desserts and we use only the best quality ingredients and suppliers, there is no direct competition.
The business is very simple to run. The new owner could expand the menu if they choose, the website is run by Shopify so desserts can be changed with ease when required. Shopify tracks all customer data, sales, orders, return customer rates, website visits etc
The turnover over the last 6 months has varied due to Christmas and January mainly being quiet, we have now gathered momentum again and starting to make a profit in April and I believe that the business has huge potential going forward.
The staff are available on a self employed basis at the moment, they deliver and can also work in the kitchen.
The business has mainly gained custom via Facebook, we gained popularity quickly with competitions and our following is increasing by approx 30-60 per week still. We have around 4000 menus which can also be delivered in the local area to increase awareness of Tilly's. We believe we have gained many customers through word of mouth also.
If we were to keep the business I would focus on reaching more people, I think we have just scratched the surface of what is possible as many still don't know we are here.We have started to make a profit after just 6 months and we have 1700 people 'Liking' our Facebook page yet there are over 28,000 people in Kendal and over 8,000 in surrounding areas.
Currently open only 12 hours a week the potential to open full time could be beneficial, other services can also be offered such as Childrens partys, Festivals, Food Shows etc
The business is currently run from a pub kitchen, there is no lease just a temporary arrangement was made so Tilly's could move when established. Tilly's is easily relocatable, it could even be run from a home kitchen if large enough. The current landlord will consider letting out the current kitchen via separate negotiation, please get in touch if you require his details.
