Business Hilton Smythe is delighted to welcome to the market this popular and busy delicatessen, with a bistro/restaurant in Darley Dale, near Matlock, Derbyshire.
The business was originally established in 2000 and has been in our clients ‘careful ownership since 2015. Only now is the business being offered to the market, reluctantly, due to our clients’ change of circumstances. The business currently operates 6 days per week and generates a turnover in the region of £221,000 per annum, with a gross profit of approximately 65%.
Our client offers a wide range of fayre including delicatessen produce, take-away snacks, filled rolls and pastries, as well as a selection of hot and cold beverages. The restaurant serves a wide variety of hot meals and beverages. The property boasts 41 sq. metres of floor space, is very well maintained and decorated to a very high standard.
The business has built up an excellent reputation within the area and further afield, for the very high quality of the goods and services offered, which has resulted in a very loyal client base, with a high volume of footfall and passing trade.
We feel there is scope for a new owner to increase the turnover by extending the opening hours, perhaps by offering an evening restaurant/bistro trade. A new owner could also embark on a modest marketing campaign to highlight the excellent service offered. We feel the business would benefit from the launch of a website to promote the business, which already has a popular Facebook page with 118 likes and extremely good reviews.
This is an excellent opportunity for a new owner, perhaps a husband and wife team or partnership, to take this popular business to the next level; therefore, early viewing must come highly recommended to avoid disappointment.
