The strength of the Butler’s Pantry brand has helped to drive the sale of two units let to the well-known corporate caterer at Southern Cross Business Park in Bray, Co Wicklow.

While Stephen Conway of agent Colliers International had been guiding a price of €550,000 for units 16 and 17 when he brought them to the market last September, strong bidding from a broad pool of investors saw the property secure in excess of €645,000, equating to a net initial yield of 6.77 per cent, and a capital value of €107 per sq ft.
