Hilton Smythe is delighted to welcome to the market Gregory’s Café.
The popular café is well known in the area to the local residents and visitors to Deal. The business was established in 2001 by our client but he has now reluctantly decided to sell to concentrate on other business interests.
The café specialises in a traditional home cooked menu and is most popular for breakfast and lunchtime specials. The business is at is busiest between 11am – 2pm during the lunchtime period. The café is also popular for birthday functions, with frequent requests for homemade birthday cakes.
The café is currently turning over a figure of £70,000 per annum and has a circa of 81%, we feel there is a scope to improve the business, possibly by extending opening hours into the evenings and offer a bistro style menu. We also feel like the business would benefit highly by applying for an alcohol licence.
The café is very spacious and can easily accommodate a further 20 covers, the new owner could also take the business to the next level by offering outside catering for event’s and other private occasions, offer a delivery service to local residents and businesses.
We highly recommend an early viewing on this business.
