Hilton Smythe welcomes to the market Upper Limit Café. The business is well established and was first opened around 20 years ago. Our client took over 8 years ago but are now looking to sell due to the desire to concentrate on other business interests.
The business runs as a coffee shop selling a fantastic range of delicious foods. They offer breakfasts, lunches and hot and cold snacks in the recently refurbished premise. The coffee shop has a 5 star hygiene rating. The business is highly popular and receives a generous amount of repeat trade and heavy footfall.
The coffee shop generates a healthy turnover of around £320,000 per annum. There is further potential to boost turnover by extending opening hours and by introducing a loyalty scheme. The business closes at 4pm weekdays. By opening later hours the new owner could look to offer an evening menu which should maximise trade.
The coffee shop has very little competition around and the new owner should look to advertise the business on sites such as JustEat and Hungry House. These are popular sites that allow for an increase in trade.
The business has an exceptional reputation in the area and a successful social media presence. The coffee shop boasts excellent reviews on TripAdvisor. The owner has also set up a Facebook page with over 1,000 followers. This page is regularly updated with information about the business and any special offers.
This is a wonderful business in a beautiful position, a real lifestyle business with high levels of repeat trade. Hilton Smythe highly advise early viewing to take in full potential of the trade.
