Business Sales Booming in St Agnes

The popular, unspoilt Cornish coastal village of St Agnes is clearly seen as a fabulous business opportunity.

Within a short space of time, Miller Commercial have sold four local businesses, three of which were under offer within two weeks of them coming on to the market. You might expect businesses of this nature to have been snapped up by out of area buyers but, unusually, this has not been the case as all four businesses have been sold to local people, two of whom live in the village. In addition to sharing a popular location, all four businesses were food related.

The catering sector in general accounts for in the region of 60% of our activity and, when combined with a highly desirable coastal location, you have the perfect scenario for buyers which may account for the apparent surge of interest in St Agnes.

St Agnes, like many of Cornwall’s coastal villages, has a loyal, local community which offers purchasers the stability of ‘year round’ trade with the added benefit of a seasonal uplift through the summer months. For many people, this holds great appeal as there is not the dependency on a very short season which can be very heavily weather dependent and unpredictable.

We receive daily enquiries from those both local and out of area looking for a food lifestyle business somewhere in Cornwall or Devon. For anyone thinking of selling such a business now is definitely the time to go to market.
