Hilton Smythe is delighted to welcome to the market this popular and busy farmhouse style café business in Finedon, Northamptonshire.
The business was established by our clients in 2013 and is only now being offered to the market due to our clients’ desire to move abroad. The business currently operates 7 days per week and generates a turnover in the region of £126,280 per annum as per 2015 accounts, with a good gross profit.
Our clients’ offer a wide variety of fayre including breakfasts, cereals, breakfast rolls, sandwiches and baguettes, Paninis, jacket potatoes, homemade burgers, soup and omelettes, to name a few, as well as a selection of hot and cold beverages. Our clients also offer an outside catering service, which has proved to be very popular. The property offers approximately 206 sq. metres, is very well maintained and fitted out to suit the trade with approximately 70 covers.
The business has built up an excellent reputation within the area and further afield, due to the high quality of the goods and services offered, which has resulted in a very loyal client base, with a high volume of repeat trade and word of mouth recommendations.
We feel there is scope to increase the turnover by extending the opening hours, perhaps by opening in the evenings as a bistro. A new owner could also embark on a small marketing campaign to highlight the excellent food and services offered, as well as offering a delivery service.
This is an excellent opportunity for a new owner to take this already thriving business to the next level; therefore early viewing must come highly recommended to avoid disappointment.
