A great opportunity to acquire a successfully owner operated, turn-key café business which has been newly refurbished and equipped to a high standard throughout. With approx. 120 covers, ice-cream take-away facility, large well-equipped kitchens and spacious two-bedroom accommodation. This business is in the very heart of the all year-round busy coastal town of Minehead, Somerset. There is tremendous opportunity to expand with possibilities of a large terrace overlooking the town, and to create al-fresco dining. Rice’s enjoys a fine reputation from locals and visitors alike and we the agents feel there is much scope to expand on the already impressive turn-over. Early viewings are highly recommended....
Minehead is a coastal town and civil parish in Somerset, England. It lies on the south bank of the Bristol Channel, 21 miles (34 km) north-west of the county town of Taunton, 12 miles (19 km) from the border with the county of Devon and in proximity of the Exmoor National Park. Minehead has one of the UK largest leisure parks called Butlins with over 9,200 beds which further enhances Minehead’s all year-round busy status.
Rice’s café has been successfully owner operated for many years with part time assistance when required. Over the last 12 months the business has undergone a comprehensive refurbishment to include a well-equipped dining and kitchen area. The opening hours are between 10.00 – 14.00 and because of this, we the agents feel there is great scope to expand by providing breakfasts and only opening slightly later which could then provide early evening meals. Actual trading accounts will be made available following a formal successful viewing.
