Hilton Smythe are delighted to welcome to the market The New Lofthouse Café. This lovely café and delivery service is the perfect small business, in a fantastic location and mass of custom.
Established 3 years ago the business has thrived ever since, our client has only very recently taken on the business in 2013, and has worked hard to increase the revenue of which the business takes in. Our client is now reluctantly looking into selling the business due to a recent bereavement.
The business is currently generating an advised turnover of around £52,000 per annum. But could be increased with the development of the 400 new houses being built in the area. Also below the shop is a dog grooming salon, allowing customers to have something to eat and drink whilst waiting for their dog.
The business is currently running a small delivery round which we are advised with a little marketing, could open up to a more substantial amount of deliveries.
The business currently sells, hot and cold sandwiches, breakfasts, jacket potatoes, salads, burgers and chips. The business also caters a different menu in the winter selling hot food like stews, spaghetti bolognaise and also chillies etc.
The business is brilliant and has a fantastic 5 star hygiene rating, which increased trade. The business is well fitted out with valuable equipment. The business also has the space to start up an outside catering service to boost revenue.
This business is set in a unique area with the large amount of footfall and passing trade. I advise early viewing to avoid disappointment.
The New Lofthouse Café is located in Lofthouse Wakefield, West Yorkshire
Set just above a Nisa convenience store on Leeds Road A61 a busy main road, in a great residential area. Leeds Road is just on the outskirts of Wakefield and is close to Leeds.
Just 5 minutes away from the business is the M62 and also the M1. There is plenty of footfall in this area, with fantastic connections through to surrounding major cities.
Just past the shop is a bus stop which goes to Leeds City Centre. In the area is a mass of houses and close by is a development due to start shortly, for 400 new houses to be built. This will increase the amount of footfall in the area and benefit the delivery side of the business.
The local school is just up the road from the premises, and also The Rodilian Academy. There are several small shops including the Nisa Local which is below the premises, this provides a large car park.
