Drastically reduced in price for a quick sale due to owner’s personal circumstances.
There has been a food based business at these premises for over ten years. The current owners started this business in 2016 following a complete refurbishment and rebranding which was completed at some considerable cost. The business is being sold reluctantly due to our clients wish to pursue other business interests.
There is a Facebook page and a visible presence on social media. The business has a 5* food hygiene rating.
The current owner prides herself on the quality of her cooking, all food is grilled or oven cooked rather than frying and ingredients are locally sourced where possible. Alongside traditional Café fayre such as English breakfasts the business sells light healthier breakfasts, jacket potatoes, hot pork and chicken, sandwiches, baguettes and batons, panini, salad boxes, hot and cold drinks and they are also well known for their range of Caribbean dishes such as jerk chicken, curried chicken and stewed oxtail etc.
The business has a healthy trade in outside catering particularly birthdays, christenings and funerals and has several local factories placing lucrative food orders on a weekly basis. The business also does catering for the large community pub opposite.
Scope to improve
Extend the opening hours, perhaps by opening as a bistro in the evenings.
Reinstate the sale of roast dinners on a Sunday.
Develop the outside catering arm of the business perhaps by offering a sandwich round and focusing on corporate business also.
Consider Just Eat and Hungry House type offerings.
Advertising and marketing campaign.
Introduce a loyalty card/scheme.Location
