Business Description
Hilton Smythe are pleased to introduce Café Moods to the market, rebranded by our client in 2010 following a successful period of trading as an O'Brien's Franchise which he acquired in 2002.  The brand and image of the business have been carefully nurtured by our client to bring to the market a fresh and modern coffee shop with the addition of a selection of Fair Trade and organic food; as well as coffee for local businesses and customers.  

The business has established a loyal customer base by the introduction of various offers designed to entice customers to return to the store with 85% of the client's customers visit the cafe up to 3 times a week.  Our client has also introduced a Loyalty Card Scheme.  95% of customers are the proud owners of the cards and this has proven to be very popular, in addition to providing sandwiches and snacks to the exclusive Landing Bar.

Café Moods benefits from an exclusivity clause within the building meaning that no other eateries can trade till 2017 onwards.

This is a truly unique opportunity to acquire a profitable and established Café. Viewing must come highly recommended.

Café Moods is ideally located within the affluent business district of Salford Quays, Salford. The area has seen vast development and improvements in recent years, now providing thousands of square feet in office space.

Situated within the Atrium of Anchorage 2 buildings, Café Moods benefits vastly from the discerning business customer. Easy access is provided from the M602 motorway and major surrounding A roads.  Within close proximity are landmarks such as the Lowry, MediaCityUK and the Imperial War Museum.


Develop Pods – This exciting unique concept is in the development stage with plans already drawn up and involves the construction of mobile pods to be erected in large office buildings or outside events and would have a dramatic impact on turnover if fully developed in the Salford Quays, Manchester and surrounding areas.  These can be serviced by the store.

2 Increase marketing – Fully utilise the existing email database to target market promotions/events and further promote awareness of the business to a wider audience through social media websites.

3 Sandwich Delivery – Take advantage of the location and introduce a sandwich delivery service to the plethora of offices in and around Salford Quays, Trafford Park, MediaCityUK; and Airport Business Park.

4 Extend opening hours – We feel that an extension to the opening hours could bring huge scope to increase turnover.  

Obtain Alcohol license – Offer a different menu during early evening for the business customers.

Presented to a high standard, the Cafe houses large serve over counter to the right, with server area complete with EPOS till system, coffee machine and grinder.

To the rear of the serving area is a compact kitchen area housing preparation area, storage and washing facilities.  The customer area benefits from ample seating with a good sized open fronted chiller.  The café extends to the exterior of the café, with seating provided both in the atrium and to the waterfront with views of the Quays and MediaCityUK.

Advised leasehold. Rent stands at £21,576 per annum.

Monday - Friday 7.30am until 3pm.

Closed during all bank holidays and weekends.

The business is managed by our client with the assistance of both full and part time staff members.

Turnover is in the region of £165,000 with a reported net profit at circa 30% without adjustment.
