Hilton Smythe is delighted to welcome to the market this popular café business, ideally located within the city of Bath, Somerset.
The business was established by our client in 2011 and is only now being offered to the market due to our client’s other business interests. The business currently operates 6 days per week and according to accounts ending July 2015, the business generated a turnover in the region of £83,300 per annum, with a gross profit of approximately 64%.
Our client offers a wide variety of fayre including hot and cold sandwiches, soups, salads and daily lunch specials, as well as cakes, which are all made onsite, biscuits, chocolates, fudges, relishes, preserves and chutneys.
All the food is freshly prepared with only the finest high quality ingredients, which are locally sourced, if possible. Our client also offers a bespoke outside catering service for any occasion, providing everything from finger buffets to custom-made speciality cakes.
The property boasts just over 72 sq. metres of floor space, with a café area for 20 covers. The premises are very well maintained, decorated to a very high standard and fitted out to suit the trade.
The business has built up an enviable reputation within the area for the very high quality of the goods and services offered, which has resulted in a very loyal client base, with a high volume of repeat trade and word of mouth recommendations.
We feel there is scope to increase the turnover by extending the opening hours, perhaps by offering Sunday trading. A new owner could also embark on a modest marketing campaign to highlight the excellent food and service available. There is already an excellent and informative website in place to promote the business at www.indulgence-cafe.co.uk.
This is an excellent opportunity for a new owner, perhaps a husband and wife team or partnership, to take this already thriving and popular business to the next level; therefore early viewing must come highly recommended to avoid disappointment.
