Hilton Smythe is delighted to welcome to the market this well-established and very popular café business, ideally located within the seaside town of Bexhill-on-Sea, East Sussex.
The business was originally established in the 1940s and has been in our clients’ careful ownership since 2012. Only now is the business being offered to the market due to our clients’ unfortunate health problems. The business operates 5 days per week and generates a turnover in the region of £70,000 per annum, with a gross profit of approximately 64% as of the 2015 accounts.
Our clients offer a wide variety of freshly prepared home cooked fayre and homemade cakes, as well as a selection of hot and cold beverages. Our clients also offer a very popular meals on wheels delivery service, with over 40 meals delivered every day. The premises boasts a spacious 71 sq. metres of floor space, is very well maintained and decorated to a high standard, with over 30 covers.
The business has built up an enviable reputation within the area for the 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. The business also boasts excellent reviews on the popular travel website Trip Advisor.
We feel there is scope to increase the turnover by extending the opening hours, perhaps by trading on Mondays as the business is currently closed on that day. A new owner could also embark on a modest marketing campaign to promote the business and services offered.
This is an excellent opportunity for a new owner, perhaps a husband and wife team or partnership, to take this already business to the next level; therefore early viewing must come highly recommended to avoid disappointment.
Two Trees café occupies substantial ground floor premises, ideally located within the town of Bexhill-on-Sea, East Sussex.

Bexhill-on-Sea is a seaside town and is home to a number of archaeological sites, a Manor House in the Old Town, an abundance of Edwardian and Victorian architecture and the famous De La Warr Pavillion. Bexhill-on-Sea retains much of the charm and style that made it a favourite of the Victorian and Edwardian aristocracy.
