Business Description
Hilton Smythe is delighted to introduce to the market Caffé Capo. This family run café has been open for just over a year. Our client set up the café very recently, but is now looking to sell due to health problems.

The café has been very popular building up a fantastic turnover over the few months its been establised. We are advised the current turnover for the business is around £174,000 per annum, with a gross profit of 70%. This is great but we believe the turnover could be increased by adding to the menu.

The café currently offers a great simple menu with products such as, sandwiches, toasties and jacket potatoes each with a range of fillings. This is fantastic however we feel by adding hot meals such as curries, pies and hot breakfasts etc there will be a great increase in turnover.

The business could also increase opening hours this will boost custom. Opening Sundays throughout the year will target more tourists. The new owner could look into opening evenings and/or by setting up a restaurant in the evening. The business could also be run full time as a restaurant. It could be profitable to look into getting an alcohol license.

On the first floor of the premise is a large room this would be perfect to increase the café or restaurant space, the café currently has covers for 75. This space could be used as a function room for parties, meetings and christenings etc.

The premise has been totally referbished and is the perfect turnkey opportunity, included in the sale is the new expensive equipment.

This is a fabulous opportunity for a buyer or family looking at buying in this sector of business, there is a lot of potential for this cafe. Hilton Smythe highly advise early viewing to avoid disappointment.
