Business Description
Aspire is delighted to present for sale this substantial licensed café bar and potential restaurant / bistro, set in an enviable trading location in the centre of Kendal, Cumbria.
The business is set on one of the main shopping thoroughfares in the town, surrounded by a wide range of independent and well known high street shops and businesses. The premises have a considerable main road presence and prominent, attractive frontage. The town centre location benefits from high footfall and much passing traffic, with ample car parking available in the vicinity and easy access to public transport.
Kendal is a vibrant town and a popular residential area, which also draws substantial numbers of visitors all year round.
The area is serviced by a number of A-roads, with the M6 motorway less than seven miles away.

The business trades from a character 4-storey building, which was originally built in the 1600’s as a coaching inn and it retains many original features such as cornicing and wooden panelling.

The cafe bar has been in the careful hands of the current owners for over 13 years, and is only now offered for sale due to relocation. The owners have developed an enviable reputation in the town, which is reflected in their many excellent internet reviews, and which provides much repeat trade. The premises hold a table alcohol licence.

Currently run at a pace to suit, there is huge scope to enhance the business. These sizeable premises would easily lend themselves to evening opening hours and re-branding as a restaurant and bistro. Alternatively there is also the option of introducing international cuisine such as Italian, Chinese or Indian.
Initially extending the opening hours would increase turnover, along with re-arranging the table layout to increase the number of available covers and create a more intimate environment.
Offering additional services such as a takeaway / delivery service, outside catering, or using the premises for private functions are other opportunities.

There is a website in place, which could be further enhanced to offer additional marketing opportunities.

Externally, the business fronts onto the main road, with a prominent, attractive facade, finished with black wrought iron railings. To the rear of the premises is a pretty courtyard dining area, with stone flagging, garden plants and a feature yew hedge, and with seating for up to 40 covers.
A private yard area provides bin and recycling storage and access for deliveries.

The main entrance leads into the foyer area with service area and an EPOS ordering and cash till system, directly connected to the kitchen. The bespoke serving counter provides a self service segment with chiller displays for food and drinks.
The dining areas are split into three sections, holding an overall total of up to 74 covers.

To the rear of the cafe is a well equipped commercial kitchen, which briefly comprises a stainless steel air extraction unit, stainless steel prep tables, commercial dishwasher, salad bar, double fryer, 2 x grills, 4-ring cooker and oven.
Also on the ground floor are staff WCs and a dry store.

The first floor has a large landing which houses 2 tables for overflow seating, customer WCs and a baby changing room. There are a number of large rooms on this floor, some are privately used by the owners and some are unused. There is also a staff room and store room.

The second floor has good potential for use as private accommodation and comprises a landing, lounge, bedroom, bathroom and a potential kitchen room.
The third floor is the attic level, which is an open plan area.
