Hilton Smythe is delighted to welcome to the market Cath’s Café. This charming café has been established for over 50 years with our client successfully running the business since inception in 2012.
Cath’s Café is very well supported by the local community seeing much repeat trade and benefits from a monopoly trading position, with very little competition in the area. The business reports a healthy turnover of £78,000 per annum with a gross profit around 65%.
The business is well known for the quality of fayre and value for money. The café offers a diverse menu including breakfasts, hot and cold sandwiches, jacket potatoes, daily specials, Sunday roasts and much more, all freshly prepared and available to eat in or take away. The café offers an order and delivery service via the popular website www.just-eat.co.uk boasting great reviews. The business also has a presence on social media website Facebook with over 1100 likes.
The business also offers a buffet and outside catering service for all special occasions, with a good choice of menus to suit all budgets, with deliveries not only within Burnley but also neighbouring towns and villages. Included is a liveried delivery van.
The café is well presented and light and airy with 18 covers and free Wifi. The kitchen is very well equipped and immaculately clean with the business boasting a 5 star food and hygiene rating. In addition there is a 1 bedroom flat above the business which could be used as owner’s accommodation or equally let out to generate further income.
Due to its unopposed trading position, we believe there is the potential to extend opening hours into the evening and offer the delivery service later in the day to increase revenue.
This is a great turn key business venture which genuinely comes to the market due to our clients other business interests and we would urge early viewing.
