Business Description

Wilmington's premier shop for all things cooking and kitchen related located in a central location with good traffic and visibility. Owner has established a Registered Trademark, business infrastructure and marketing brand adding goodwill that compliments both businesses on the retail and the cooking service sides. Operated since 2004 by the current owner, The Seasoned Gourmet has grown to include the Food and Wine Club. An investment to move to larger space in 2016 allowed the business to expand and add a new kitchen and event space. Weekly events with well known local chefs and themed dinners has increased revenue in 2017. Well established social media marketing and a total streamlined e-commerce shopping feature on the website provides revenue growth. Lots of future potential for the right person. A similar start-up business would cost between 250-300k to bring it to the level of this opportunity.
