Hilton Smythe welcomes to the market Harbour Café. The business was established in the 1970’s with our clients successfully running the business since inception in 1995. The business benefits from very little competition in the area and sees much repeat trade.
Harbour Café is immaculately presented with cheerful décor, seating for 35 covers and well equipped kitchen area. The café has a hygiene rating of 5. The café serves a great varied menu from breakfasts to hot and cold sandwiches and snacks. The business reports a healthy turnover of circa £72,000 per annum with a gross profit in the region of 40%.
The cafe is very well supported by local businesses and has an excellent reputation for the quality of service and value for money. However, we believe there is huge potential for further growth. We are advised by our client that there has been a great demand for a delivery service in the area for a sandwich round. The café is comprehensively equipped to cope for this and could even expand into the outside catering field for private parties or business meetings. We believe the business would also benefit from having a presence on social media websites and launching a website to entice new custom.
This is a fantastic turnkey business venture which genuinely comes to the market as our clients which to pursue other business interests. We highly recommend early viewing.
