Leasehold option available £40,000 + SAV
Hilton Smythe is delighted to welcome to the market this well-established and popular café business, which is ideally located within a quaint town in West Yorkshire.
The business was originally established in 1969 and has been in our client’s careful ownership since 1998. Only now is the business being offered to the market due to our client’s other interests. The business currently operates 5 days per week and generates a turnover in the region of £27,000 per annum, with a good gross profit as per 2014 accounts.
Our client offers a wide variety of hot and cold food, to eat on the premises or take away, as well as a selection of hot & cold beverages. The café specialises in large and small breakfasts, with a vegetarian option available. The breakfasts include tea or coffee, plus toast or bread and butter.
The café boasts approximately 87 sq. metres of floor space and is well fitted out to suit the trade with 55 covers. The first and second floors offers two flats, which are currently being used as owners’ accommodation. Flat 4a, which is on the first floor covers the entire footprint of the café with a spacious lounge, kitchen/dining room, bathroom and two bedrooms. Flat 4b on the second floor boasts a spacious open plan living room/kitchen/dining room, bathroom and two double bedrooms.
The business has built up an enviable reputation within the area for the high quality of the food 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 and perhaps open on Monday and Tuesday. A new owner could also embark on a modest marketing campaign to highlight the excellent fayre offered. We also feel the business would benefit from the launch of a website to promote the business.
This is an excellent opportunity for a new owner, perhaps a husband and wife team or partnership, to take this already busy business to the next level; therefore, early viewing must come highly recommended to avoid disappointment.
This café occupies substantial three storey premises, ideally located within a picturesque town in West Yorkshire. The property is surrounded by a wealth of complimentary shops, businesses and residential properties, from which the business derives much trade, as well as from the many tourists, visitors, bikers and cyclists to the town. The café benefits from excellent car parking facilities within the area.
The area of the business is well served by the public transport system, with the bus station directly opposite the property. The nearest railway station is approximately 2½ miles away.
