EPC – CREF 6966 – Two Leasehold Cocktail Bars
Blacks Brokers are pleased to bring to the market these two leasehold cocktail bars located in a thriving area of Macclesfield, Cheshire. INTRODUCTION
Thirsty Beak & Harley's Fire and Ice are two well established bars within the heart of Macclesfield’s nightlife area – Dukes Court. Our client opened Thirsty Beak in July 2016 and Harleys Fire & Ice in December 2017. The bars were formally known as Ronnie’s and Society. Both bars are very well known and have a strong base of regular customers in place as well as benefitting from a huge amount of passing trade due to this excellent trading position. Our client has ensured the businesses both have an excellent reputation and superb reviews are noted on Google and Facebook. LOCATION
Thirsty Beak & Harley's Fire and Ice are both located within Dukes Court which is just off Mill Street in the busy town centre. The area is densely populated commercially with neighbouring businesses including other nightlife venues, taxi businesses, eateries, independent retailers and large multiples such as Subway and Tesco Express. Macclesfield Station is also close by. Macclesfield is well linked by the M6, A537 and A523 with strong public transport links and parking is available in the surrounding area. REASON FOR SALE
The bars are ideally suited to a hands-on owner-operating team but due to the demands of our client's other business commitments being higher than anticipated, the bars are currently opening on reduced hours and therefore offered for sale. This presents an excellent opportunity for a new owner-operating team to take the businesses to the next level. LEASE
The building is available on a Full Repair & Insure lease (FRI lease). This is the most common form of commercial lease. The current lease is a three year lease which began in July 2017, this runs at a cost of £341.50 per week.STAFF
The business operates with two members of part time staff in employment supporting our client working on a part time basis. With additional staff and a new, full time owner operator, trading hours could be hugely increased.FINANCIAL DETAILS
Thirsty Beak & Harley's Fire and Ice have both traded solidly since opening and our client has established a strong customer base with a great projected annual turnover of £423,800.
As mentioned above, it is to be noted that the business is currently operating on limited hours to suit the needs of our client’s busy life – there is much scope and demand to extend opening hours and days. SUMMARY
This is a unique opportunity to acquire two thriving and popular bars within a bustling area of Macclesfield. Both bars are well known and have strong customer bases in place with the added bonus of superb trading positions. There is plenty of scope to develop the businesses further with the introduction of an owner-operator with staff or owner operating team to accommodate longer opening hours and potentially to introduce food sales into Harley's Fire and Ice which has space for a kitchen and servery area. This proposition would ideally suit an owner operating team who could push the business forward and build upon the solid and impressive trading foundations. Early viewings are strongly advised.
