Business Description
Hilton Smythe is delighted to welcome to the market this well-established coffee shop/café business in a prime trading location in Bow, London.

The business was established in 2005 and has been in our client’s careful ownership since 2008. Only now is the business being offered to the market due to our client’s desire to concentrate on other business interests. The coffee shop currently operates 6 days per week and generates a turnover in the region of £184,000 per annum, with a gross profit of approximately 72%.

Our client offers a wide variety of fayre including full English and Italian style breakfasts, salads, pasta, various Italian dishes and hot and cold sandwiches, to name a few, as well as a variety of hot and cold beverages. Our client also offers a delivery service, which has proved very popular and outside catering, which includes three contracts with local authorities.

The property boasts approximately 87½ square metres of floor space, incorporating a spacious service area with approximately 30 covers and a commercial kitchen.

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 very 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 opening in the evenings as a bistro or offering Sunday trading. A new owner could also embark on a modest marketing campaign to promote the food and services offered. The coffee shop already has a website in place, which offers online ordering facilities.

This is an excellent opportunity for a new owner to take this already thriving business to the next level; therefore early viewing must come highly recommended to avoid disappointment.

Kiki Coffee Shop occupies substantial ground floor premises, ideally located on the very busy Roman Road within the Bow district of London. The business is surrounded by a wealth of complimentary shops and businesses and benefits from a very high volume of footfall and passing trade. The business further benefits from good car parking facilities within the immediate area.

Bow is a district in east London, within the Borough of Tower Hamlets. Bow underwent extensive urban regeneration including the replacement or improvement of council homes, the redevelopment and rejuvenation coincided with the staging of the 2012 Olympic Games at nearby Stratford.

The area of the business is well served by the public transport system, with several bus stops within easy walking distance of the property.
