Dear chef community, I have decided to put a lions share of my catering business up for sale as I’m looking to leave London and start a family. I think my business would be a great opportunity for a talented chef who’s looking to get out of the craziness of restaurant kitchens and run their own business. I have a pretty decent client list which includes the likes of Jamie O & his magazine and production company, Fresh One, Ralph Lauren and all their London stores, Parliament, Anya Hindmarch, Tom Kerridge, Warner Film, Warner Music, Ben & Jerry’s and more recently, Google.
My business has won multiple awards and I have never advertised or marketed my business, other than running the standard social media pages. What attracts my clients is my strong brand and reputation and I receive almost all of my new clients via recommendation and word of mouth. We’re also very niche, catering for photoshoots, music videos and some film as well as larger events and press days. There is no shortage of jobs coming in and we very often have to turn down work as we’re fully booked – so you can literally hit the ground running, so to speak.
I would be open to discussion on either a full outright sale plus full support; a large percentage and I remain a shareholder and Creative Director; or purchase of equipment, commercial kitchen takeover and client list.
I want it to go to the very best hands and to someone who really understands and cares about food, seasonality and sustainability as that is what my clients have come to expect and I really want to see my business continue to grow and thrive.
Offers in the region of £150, 000 or £250,000 for full brand takeover and 12 months support. Other offers considered.
