Hilton Smythe welcomes to the market Dave’s Sandwich Bar. The business has been established since the 1950’s with our client successfully running the business since inception in 2010.
The sandwich bar and cafe is in a great location seeing a lot of repeat trade and is well supported by local residents and businesses. Dave’s Sandwich Bar reports a healthy turnover of £70,000 with a good gross profit.
The café area is light and airy with around 15 covers and serves a good selection of hot and cold sandwiches, breakfasts, jacket potatoes, tempting savouries and sweets. All accompanied by a good choice of hot and cold beverages. The business holds an A3 licence. Our client is Portuguese and also offers a range of produce from this country for sale.
We believe the business has potential for further growth by perhaps adding additional items to the menu, increasing opening hours and introducing a delivery round in the locality. The business would also benefit from a modest marketing campaign to further promote awareness.
Early viewing on this turn key business is highly recommended with the business genuinely coming to the market as our client looks towards a well-deserved retirement.
The business is located in the town of Thatcham in historic Berkshire.
Dave’s Sandwich Bar occupies a prime trading location within a busy retail parade, on the main A4 thoroughfare through the town. The business is ideally located close to densely populated residential areas with heavy passing traffic and excellent footfall throughout the day.

The area is served by its own railway station and has regular bus services running through the town with a bus stop conveniently positioned opposite the retail parade.
