Vintage Converted Horsebox- Wedding And Event Caterer & Bar
Gosport & Fareham, Hampshire
Business overview**REDUCED PRICE** Fully Relocatable and desirable event caterers. Currently focused on the wedding market but the trailer can be put to almost any use.
We started this business last year as a bit of a side hustle project. In that time our other business commitments have grown to the point where we cannot commit the time we would like to continue the successful start this business has had.
There are many mobile bars out there and horseboxes are particularly on trend at the moment- but to our knowledge we are the only one offering food and drinks to customers.
Our USP is food locally sourced and cooked on site, our customers are buying into a high quality product from a family run, local business with unique and high quality branding.
We have had to be very picky about the events we can do but even so there is already £8500 worth of bookings for next year that are part of the sale. This is 3 events and would be roughly 6 days work (1 day prep/1 day delivery for each).
The website receives around 5-10 hot leads per month and for the right person these could easily be turned into sales.
The business is also signed up with two lead generation services for the industry and this generates around 10-20 leads a week which can be followed up.
An average booking is worth around £2500 each with a profit margin of between 50% and 70% depending on the type of event.
Events can be run with between 1 and 4+ people dependant on the size of the event. For a 100 person wedding we would be looking at a gross profit of £3000 with 2 cooking staff needed and 2 waiting staff.
During the winter the trailer can be put to use at Christmas markets and other events. There is great potential to attend summer events also such as country fairs and festivals. We have been approached a lot by street food festivals and vintage festivals- there is a charge for pitching at these events but profit margins are very good.
For the right buyer this presents an opportunity to own a business that is prepped for success.
Included in the sale is:
Vintage Converted Horse Box Trailer- runs off mains electric or generator. Has external and internal lighting.
Stock- various sundry items
All future bookings and deposits
Our horsebox always gets compliments wherever we go and the earnings potential is superb given a little time commitment.
Fully Relocatable but currently in Hampshire with bookings all over the south coast of England.
