Businesses for sale

Business opportunity available now.

We're working with a local business to offer an opportunity to own and run an established, profitable, award-winning Hitchin business.


If you want to earn a good income, working family-friendly hours, preparing and running short workshops during the day for small groups and have a lot fun doing it, then this is for you.

There’s no experience necessary, you will receive full training, support and equipment as well as documentation covering every procedure you need to run your business.

You just need to be a friendly ‘people person’ who happens to like chocolate.

Over the last eight years, all sorts of small groups made up of friends, colleagues, hen parties, birthday parties and primary school children have enjoyed learning to make high quality chocolate in relaxed and friendly workshops.

The seller set the business up in 2009, building, developing and documenting processes as she went, resulting in high quality, professional documentation covering all aspects of running the business including sales and marketing, finance, and how to run successful chocolate making workshops.

Changes in her family circumstances mean that she now has less time to devote to it, so now is the right time to hand it over to someone new, whose drive and determination will enable them to build on her success.

The selling price of the business is £15,000, which covers goodwill including the brand name, know-how, future bookings, customer and prospect lists, website and social media presence as well as initial training and handover. Stock and equipment can also be purchased for an additional fee and ongoing support from the current owner is negotiable.

A net profit of £24k is a realistic target for the new owner with a time commitment of around 28 hours per week.
