Business Description
Hilton Smythe welcomes to the market Caffi Jan`s. The café was originally established in 2004 by our client. The owner is now looking to sell the business due to the desire to take a well-deserved retirement.

The business runs as a café serving a variety of hot and cold food, breakfasts and lunches along with specials of the day. The café has an excellent reputation for good home cooked food such as their specials of Chilli Con Carnie, various curries, lasagne, Spaghetti Bolognese etc. There is also a specialist vegetarian selection of food, which is very popular. The café offers a take away or eat-in service for all products.

Also included in the sale is the laundrette which is run from the rear of the property. The laundry and ironing service has a good repeat trade from local residents and has a separate entrance door.

The business is currently generating an advised turnover of around £49,000 per annum with a gross profit of 76%. This is a healthy turnover that could be increased. Our client has run this business to an exceptional standard giving the purchaser a head start. This is a unique café that is eye catching to passing trade. The new owner could look to modernise the café a little.

The owner could also look to advertise on social media sites such as Facebook. JustEat or HungryHouse are great ordering sites which are increasing in popularity.

The café has a great online presence, there are many reviews on TripAdvisor. This is a review site well-used by tourists that visit the area.

Above the café are two flats which generate a combined income of £480 per month. This is a great extra which is included in the sale. However, if the new owner requires accommodation this space could be adapted to suit.

This is a highly popular business sitting in a prominent trading location. The café sees repeat trade from the locals and a heavy amount of custom from tourists. There is all year round trade making this an unmissable opportunity. Hilton Smythe highly advise early viewing to avoid disappointment.
