Hilton Smythe is delighted to welcome to the market this well-established and very popular sandwich bar and catering business in the busy city of Bristol. The business was established by our client in 2004 and is only now being offered to the market due to our client`s desire for a change of career. The business is open five days per week and generates a turnover in the region of £208,000, with a gross profit of approximately 54% as per 2015 accounts. Our client offers a wide range of high quality sandwiches, snacks, baguettes, Panini’s, toasties and salads, as well as selection of hot and cold beverages.
The business has an excellent reputation within the area for the high quality of the produce available, which has resulted in a very large and loyal client base, with a vast amount of repeat trade, as well as word of mouth referrals. The business also specialises in corporate and business lunches, vending supplies, on site catering with staff, wholesale supplies, sandwich delivery rounds and bespoke catering for weddings, parties, birthdays etc. The business has three ongoing contracts in place, which includes schools and providing daily lunches for a large local company.
The sandwich delivery service is based on a set route with a sophisticated online ordering system, from which customers can order for delivery a wide range of sandwiches and snacks. Included in the sale of the business is one sign written refrigerated van. The business benefits from a 5 star food hygiene rating. We feel the turnover could be increased by extending the opening hours and perhaps open on Saturdays.
There is also scope for a new owner to embark on a marketing campaign to highlight the event catering side of the business. This is an excellent opportunity for a new owner to take this already thriving and profitable business to the next level; therefore early viewing must come highly recommended to avoid disappointment.
This well-established and popular sandwich bar and catering business is ideally located in a busy part of Bristol. The business benefits from on-street parking within the vicinity and is surrounded by a wealth of complimentary shops, businesses and densely populated residential areas, from which the business derives much of its trade. The City of Bristol has an estimated population of 437,492 residents, together with the surrounding larger urban zone there was an estimated 1.07 million residents in 2007. Bristol is England’s sixth most populous city.
The area of the business is well-served by the public transport system, with several bus stops within easy walking distance of the property. The nearest railway station is less than half a mile away. The area is also well-served by the A-roads and the motorway networks.
