Hilton Smythe is delighted to welcome to the market this well-established and busy café business in Gloucestershire. The business was established by our client in 2009 and is only now, reluctantly, being offered to the market due to our client`s desire to pursue other business interests. The business operates on limited hours and generates a turnover in the region of £135,000 per annum, with a gross profit of approximately 65%.
The turnover is generated from the preparation and sale of freshly prepared, high quality fayre including sandwiches, baguettes, pasta, salads, pastries, all day breakfasts, home cooked meals and confectionery, as well as a range of hot and cold beverages. Our client also offers a delivery service to businesses within the area, outside catering, corporate buffets and vending services. All the ingredients used in the food preparation are from locally sourced suppliers.
The business has an excellent reputation within the area for the high quality of the food and service offered, which has resulted in a very loyal client base, with a vast amount of repeat trade and word of mouth referrals. The premises boasts a good size café area with approximately 40 covers. We are advised there are two sign written vans which are not included in the sale, but could be bought by separate negotiation.
We feel the turnover could be increased by extending the opening hours of the business. The business would also benefit from the launch of a website and a small marketing campaign to promote the business and the services offered. This is an excellent opportunity for a new owner, perhaps a husband and wife team, to take this very busy and popular café business to the next level; therefore early viewing must come highly recommended.
This popular cafe occupies substantial two storey, lock-up premises in a prominent trading location on a very busy trading estate in Gloucestershire. The business is surrounded by a wealth of businesses, from which the business derives much of its trade and boasts a monopoly position being the only café on the estate. The business benefits from parking facilities to the front of the premises. The trading estate generates a vast amount of footfall and passing trade. The town centre is approximately 1½ miles away from the premises and boasts all the amenities needed for everyday living.
