Business Description
Hilton Smythe is delighted to welcome to the market Detour. The café was originally established in the 1990’s and was only taken over by our client in 2014. The owner is now looking to sell the business due to the desire to change career.

The café sells a fantastic range of high quality foods such as hot breakfasts, sandwiches, wraps, paninis, pasties, jacket potatoes and much more. The business offers an eat-in option or take-away.

The take-away is highly popular and the café even offers deliveries through JustEat. This has only very recently become popular but there is already high demand for this service. The business has 6 star reviews which just show how great this café really is. There are also some brilliant reviews on TripAdvisor.

We are advised the current turnover for the business is an advised £92,000 as per 2015 accounts which is a very healthy turnover for a café. Although this is a great turnover we feel this could be increased in several ways.

Some suggestions the purchaser should look into are as follows-

Develop a website

Extend opening hours

Consider opening a bistro in the evenings

Offer a delivery service to local businesses

Look into outside catering

The café has an enviable reputation in this location and benefits from a generous amount of repeat loyal trade. The owner has also achieved a 5 star hygiene rating.

This is a perfect opportunity for a first time buyer looking for an exceptional business with little competition and a great reputation. Our client would happily offer a hand over period to the purchaser whilst they settle in.
