The reputation our client has developed results in majority of sales been from Repeat customers.
Currently the business is been run to suit our client on a part time basis due to family commitments which is reflected in the most recent turnover levels. 75% is derived from sit down customers and 25% from takeaway including some outside catering work.
There is lots of demand in the area for business lunches, outside catering party food, buffets and deliveries which any new buyer could easily add back into the business. Many similar cafes now use the Just Eat App which can add a further 40% through delivery orders.
