Hilton Smythe is proud to present to the market The Food Hamper.
The Food Hamper is a well-known local café which specialises in breakfasts, hot and cold sandwiches, tea and coffee and cold drinks to local and passing trade. Our client established the café 10 years ago but now has reluctantly decided to sell due to wanting to move abroad. The business is currently turning over £46,000 per annum and has a gross profit of 64%.
Although this is a good and healthy turnover we feel as though the new owner could improve it by extending the opening hours on weekends, possibly start outside catering and delivering to local residents and business and extend the menu.
The café has been awarded the 5 star hygiene award as is also completed with a Facebook page which is posted on daily with new additions to the menu and daily meal deals. The café has 8 covers has a very modern day feel to it. The businesses accommodation is large and spacious, 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.
The Food Hamper is located in Ashton-on-Ribble near Preston, Lancashire.
