Hilton Smythe is delighted to welcome to the market this popular Caribbean restaurant business, which is ideally located within Harlech, Gwynedd.
Our client offers a wide selection of traditional Caribbean fayre including jerk chicken, spicy fried prawns, jerk pork, Buljol (saltfish) with coconut bake, BBQ wings, house specials and Roti wraps, to name a few, as well as kids’ meals and a selection of beverages. The business boasts a 5-star food hygiene rating and has excellent reviews of the popular travel website TripAdvisor and received the Good Food Award 2016.
The property boasts 86 sq. metres of floor space, is very well maintained and decorated to a very high standard. To the first and second floors of the property lies the one-bedroom owners’ accommodation, which could be let out to generate further income, should a new owner desire.
The business has built up 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 high volume of repeat trade and word of mouth recommendations.
We feel there is scope to increase the turnover by extending the opening hours. A new owner could also embark on a modest marketing campaign to highlight the food and service offered. The business already has an excellent and informative website in place to promote the business at www.soulfoodcaribbeanrestaurant.co.uk.
This is an excellent opportunity for a new owner, perhaps a husband and wife team or partnership, to take this already thriving business to the next level; therefore, early viewing must come highly recommended to avoid disappointment.
