Commercial Road invite offers for this attractive and busy business which has been established for over 8 years, and has been operated by the present owners since 2012. The business is situated on a main commuter road within Cheshire, with many independent shops, estate agents and other eateries close by making the area a hub of activity. We are told it benefits from a high volume of footfall as well as a loyal regular customer base, some of which travels for some miles for the home made corned beef hash and luxury ice creams on offer.
The business currently has 24 covers in a 5.8m x 3.5m seating area, and this is served by a fully fitted kitchen and offers a wide range of food and drinks as well as ice cream. All the fixtures and fittings and equipment have been replaced since the owners took over.
A large selection of Ice Creams to eat in or take away are served throughout the day, and this is popular with the local school children as there is a school close by. The existing owner says they have a good relationship with the school but believe offering Children’s Parties might be a good opportunity to develop this relationship further.
There is a large residential area surrounding the high street and the existing owners believe that additional opening hours, especially on a Sunday morning and or evenings, would add significant revenue to the business as there is a church close by which is well attended and other eateries offering evening opening to attract diners to the town.
Wi-fi is already installed and this is popular with customers wanting to sit down and eat in the café. Social Media has not been promoted to full effect, and this is an area that the current owner believes could promote the business even further.
The current owners have not tried to offer a food delivery service, but with many local businesses close by, and other large employers, they do believe that offering such a service could offer a new owner the potential to expand the business further.
There are 4 existing staff who work in the business (part time and full time) and the current owners believe that they would be happy to work with a new owner. This would offer help and support for the new owners during the transition period to help ensure that there was no disruption to the service currently offered.
The owners are wanting to leave due to their wish to relocate to another area some distance away to be closer to family. However, they are still willing to offer post sale support to any new owner, to help them settle in.
