Restaurant and Alcohol Licence
Hilton Smythe welcomes to the market Praca Café.
The business has been operated by the current vendor for just over two years and which due to family commitments this very rare and exciting opportunity has now become available.
This Portuguese themed Café has built up a strong and loyal following and continues to grow on an upwards trajectory.
The business sells:
• Range of coffees
• Delicious pastries
• Home-made soup
• Traditional Portuguese fayre
The site is fully licensed to sell alcohol for both on and off sales with a generous licence granted to cover all hours of the day.
The café has the benefit of 30 or so internal covers as well as the opportunity subject to local consents to greatly increase this by creating an outside seating area with canopy.
The business has become well established within the local community and offers the opportunity for a new owner to greatly increase the turnover and profitability by:
• Extending the opening hours
• Expanding the range of food beers and wine on offer
• Creating a local delivery service
• Developing a stronger on-line presence
The site is set over two floors with a kitchen, storage and additional food preparation capacity on the lower ground floor enabling the business to expand.
The site is in an excellent location within the Market Square which has a feeling of the Grand Place in Brussels Belgium about it.
This is a turn key business opportunity which the current vendor has built up with a strong and loyal customer base.
The business offers the opportunity for the new owner to put their own spin on an already established site and take it to the next level.Location
