Hilton Smythe welcomes to the market this popular cafe. The café was originally established in this location in 2000. Our clients then took over the business in 2014 and are now looking to sell the café, due to the desire to take a well-deserved retirement.
The café offers a generous amount of hot and cold fayre to eat-in or takeaway. They sell a variety of fresh sandwiches, hot breakfasts, jacket potatoes, daily specials as well as hot and cold beverages, popular products being the flavoured milkshakes and homemade cakes. This is a high quality café that has an exception reputation for its excellent service and products on offer.
The business has a great turnover of £166,000 per annum, with a gross profit of 72%. This is a healthy turnover that could be further increased. The purchaser could look to offer outside catering.
Our clients also offers a unique service of picnic basket hire. There are different menus available for this service. The hire includes a picnic basket, cutlery, plates, straws and glasses. This is an excellent service that competition in the area does not offer. The café is also know in the area for its cakes, a full cake can be made to order.
The café can host sit down parties for birthdays, baby showers, bridal showers, anniversaries, engagements and many more private parties. This side of the business should be promoted more. Social media sites such as Facebook would be a great platform. The business does have an excellent website, which promotes products, menus, up and coming events and information on all services. This site is regularly updated and is easy to use.
This really is a fantastic opportunity that is not to be missed. Hilton Smythe highly advise early viewing to take in the full potential of this popular café business.
