Business Description
Hilton Smythe welcomes to the market Cafe Oasis. This business was originally established in 2004. The owner first took over the café in October 2011 but is now looking to sell the café due to ill health.

The business runs as a traditional café offering a great selection of homemade products. They make sandwiches, baguettes, hot breakfasts, homemade cakes, quiches and a great selection of drinks including milkshakes. Additionally they offer outside catering for private functions. Most orders come from funerals and private birthday party. The café does also offer Christmas lunches and catering for large gathering at the village hall.

The café sources products from the local fruit and veg purveyors.

The business sees a large amount of trade from local builders, business owners, council workers and tourists. There is also a loyal clientele of over 65’s. This café is the only one of its size in the town and is highly recommended by the local parish.

The café currently generates a turnover of around £26,000 per annum with a gross profit of 62%. This is a reasonable turnover however we feel this could be increased in several ways. One way would be to focus more trade on the outside catering. This is a great arm of the business that has the potential to bring in huge trade.

In the area there is over 600 new homes being built, this includes new military homes and a school. This should attract and boost trade at the café.

The business offers gluten free options to customers this includes the very popular vegetarian breakfast. Not many café’s offer Gluten free products and this should be promoted more. A Facebook page would be a great platform to advertise. Free advertising on social media sites is highly effective.

Hilton Smythe highly advise early viewing of this popular town centre café.

Cafe Oasis is located in Ludgershall, Andover, Hampshire.

The business is situated on an arterial A-road in the town centre of Ludgershall. The café is amongst a retail parade of stores, there is a beauty salon, hair salon, butchers, fruit and veg shop and a post office and convenience store. This is a great location as there is on street bay parking directly outside the property. Also in the area is a plethora of residential property from which the business receives a large amount of trade.

Ludgershall is a historic town that draws in an abundance of visitors each year. There is the famous Ludgershall Castle, Andover railway line and many heritage walks.

The road on which the business is situated on runs from the centre of Ludgershall all the way over to Upavon. There are many major towns and cities just a short commute away. Southampton is just a short 45 minute drive away and Bristol is also just 1 hour away. This is a great location for those wanting to commute to the centre of London. The train station that heads directly into London is in the centre of Andover. It is however, a 2 hour drive.
