Hilton Smythe is delighted to welcome to the market The Kandy Factory. The business was originally founded by our clients in 2012 and has seen year on year growth to the successful business it is today.
This unique business concept is a chocolate café serving tempting treats such as hot chocolates, ice-cream milkshakes, warm fudge brownies and traditional sweets. The business reports this year’s turnover at circa £52,500 with a gross profit at around 72%, and is seeing revenue increasing each month.
Further revenue is generated via popular chocolate-making parties offered to customers of all ages and abilities including children, hen parties and company team building days. The children’s parties are extremely popular and we are advised our clients have applied for an alcohol licence which should boost hen party bookings.
The café is beautifully presented and the product used is quality premium Belgian chocolate. It is this attention to detail which has resulted in the businesses excellent reputation seeing much repeat trade and word of mouth recommendations. The business has an excellent website in situ www.kandyfactory.co.uk and has a presence on social media website Facebook with over 3700 likes.
We believe a new owner could further build on the excellent reputation of the business and increase revenue, perhaps, by extending opening hours, considering Groupon or Wowcher type deals and building up the mid-week business by targeting students or toddler groups.
This is a fantastic business opportunity which genuinely comes to the market due to our clients other business interests and are willing to offer a hand over period if required.
