Business Description
Business
Hilton Smythe are pleased to have been given the opportunity to manage the sale of T Pots Vintage Tea and Coffee Rooms which is a well-established business with a renowned reputation amongst local residents.

T Pots was founded by the current owner in 2016 when she identified what she thought was a gap in the market.

The business has been a real labour of love and the aim of the owner has always been to offer her customers an experience which sadly over the years has diminished from today’s society.

The number one priority of the business has been to ensure that all their customers enjoy a truly relaxing environment reminiscent of times gone by, where good old-fashioned courtesy coupled with exemplary service sets this lovely little business apart from modern, characterless coffee shops.

The business is now being sold, albeit reluctantly and with a heavy heart only due to ongoing health issues.

The current owner is keen to see her well-loved business passed to an ambitious and entrepreneurial new owner with similar values, who could take this already thriving business to the next level.

T Pots offers a comprehensive menu including;

• Breakfasts
• Jacket potatoes
• Paninis
• Toasties
• Salads
• Homemade soups
• Freshly made sandwiches with side salad and home-made coleslaw, handmade crisps.
• Teas, coffee and hot chocolates
• Cold drinks.

T Pots also offer Afternoon Teas in the day to day tea room with overflow facility that can double up as a 30 cover function room; hosting events such as family occasions, baby showers, hen parties, birthday and other special occasions. A fabulous tradition and a special way to have afternoon tea with family and friends, Afternoon tea is served with vintage crockery with period music playing in the background and includes freshly prepared finger sandwiches, side salad, a savoury selection, followed by a delicious assortment of homemade cakes.

T Pots also offers an outside catering service for weddings, special occasions, bereavements, business meetings, garden and village fetes and themed children’s parties.

The sale will include the company website (tpots.co.uk) and the business enjoys great visibility on the internet with its own Facebook, Twitter and Instagram pages and brilliant reviews from the likes of Tripadvisor and yell.com

Scope to improve

• Advertising and marketing campaign
• Extend the opening hours, perhaps opening as a bistro in the evenings
• Apply for an alcohol licence
• Explore online discounters such as Groupon and Wowcher
• Consider starting a sandwich round, lots of business locally who would find a lunchtime delivery service useful
• Explore online offerings from the likes of Hungry House and Just Eat

Reasons to buy

• A well-established business with an enviable reputation and many regular customers
• Low running costs with inexpensive rent and no business rates
• Ideal owner managed or partnership business
• Current owner happy to offer a handover to ensure the continued success
• Sale includes quality website and all social media platforms
• Perfect trading position on a busy main road with lots of footfall.

Hilton Smythe highly advise early viewing to avoid disappointment.
