Hilton Smythe welcomes to the market an exciting opportunity to acquire an exceptionally well run and performing, turn key coffee shop /take away business with an excellent reputation.
The business has been placed on the open market as it’s our clients desire to concentrate on other business interests.
Ble Coffee has been operating under the careful and meticulous ownership of our client since mid-2018, and who has grown the business to an impressive level with turnover and profit levels growing steadily.
The Business offers quality fayre with a Mediterranean feel to take away, sit in or for delivery and includes:
• Exclusive range of delicious hot and cold drinks
• Fresh-baked piping hot pies
• Freshly prepared salads
• Hearty sandwiches (toasted or cold)
• Fragrant cakes and pastries
• Nutritious healthy yoghurt snacks
• Fresh fruit juices and much more
All freshly prepared and baked according to their own recipes using authentic, fresh Mediterranean ingredients.
The business has built up an excellent reputation within the area and further afield, for the very high quality of fayre offered, which has resulted in a very loyal client base, with a high volume of footfall and passing trade along with regular online ordering via the just eat website.
The business further benefits from a strong online presence via Facebook & Instagram.
We feel there is scope for a new owner to increase the turnover by extending the opening hours, to include an ice cream parlour, A new owner could also embark on a modest marketing campaign to highlight the excellent produce on offer, and perhaps offer a specialist outside catering service.
The business is immaculately presented and is truly one of the finest “turn key” operations available to purchase.
Very rarely do businesses of this calibre come to the open market therefore, early viewing must come highly recommended to avoid disappointmentLocation
