Charlie’s Café is a well known institution located in the centre of Inverness and has been owned by the same family since 1952. Our client took the reins in 1994 and in 2004 the property was levelled and re-built to its current form.
Its enviable trading location alongside the busy city centre Bus Station ensures a heavy footfall from early morning throughout the day until evening.
The café/takeaway side of the business is run in traditional style with a selection of traditional homemade meals on offer throughout the day along with filled rolls, sandwiches and home baking available. Teas, coffees and soft drinks are all available both for sit in and takeaway.
Further turnover is derived from the newsagency side of the business which brings customers in for newspapers, confectionery along with Lotto tickets being available.
The property and business have been placed on the market to allow our client time to concentrate on other business interests. There is scope to develop what is already a very profitable operation or to look at utilising the property, with its full class 3 consent, in a different manner.
