Hilton Smythe is delighted to welcome to the market this popular and busy sandwich shop/café/delicatessen business, ideally located within the town of Yarm.
The well-established business has been in our client’s careful ownership since 2009, only now is the business being offered to the market due to our client’s other business interests. The business currently operates 7 days per week and generates a turnover in the region of £251,000 per annum, with a gross profit of approximately 58%. (audited accounts)
Our client offers a wide variety of fayre including full breakfasts, hot and cold sandwiches, pies, sausage rolls, salads, hot meals, Sunday lunches and chilled ready meals, as well as a selection of hot and cold beverages. Our client also offers an outside catering service which includes finger food, hot food and buffets. The business benefits from an A5 takeaway licence (and is able to be open until 8pm.)
The premises boasts 48 square metres and offers a spacious sales and service area, a well equipped kitchen and a small rear office. The business has built up an enviable reputation within the area for the high quality of the goods and service offered, which has resulted in a very loyal client base, with a high volume of footfall and passing trade. The business also has a chilled van with an insulated hot box which delivers 5 mornings a week to an established round of businesses within the area.
We feel there is scope to increase the turnover by extending the opening hours. A new owner could also embark on a modest marketing campaign to promote the goods and services offered and further develop a delivery service to the businesses and households within the area. The business already has a very informative website in place at www.croftersyarm.co.uk.
This is an excellent opportunity for a new owner, perhaps a husband and wife team or partnership, to take this already thriving business
