Business Description
Hilton Smythe welcomes to the market Yam Yams.

Yam Yams is a very well established business and has been trading for 5 years, our client is now looking to sell this profitable business to enable them to retire and emigrate.

The current owner has put a lot of effort into the business and due to the quality and selection of food on offer has attracted a significant uprise of customers including a considerable number of regular customers. Yam Yams also boasts an excellent on-line presence with 2688 followers and 1487 friends on Facebook, 5 Star reviews from Google, TripAdvisor and Facebook.

Because of the dedication and effort put in from our client, Yam Yams has also gained a 5 star Hygiene rating from the local council.

The majority of the food is homemade and prepared on the premises which includes; salads, jacket potatoes, pasta, hot and cold baguettes, selection of hot and cold drinks and an array of snacks. Yam Yams also offer a click and collect service which has proved very popular with the locals.

Scope to Improve; Advertising and marketing campaign, perhaps a loyalty scheme, maximise the use of social media, extend the opening hours to include late afternoons/evenings and weekends, our clients have advised that just opening Saturdays alone will generate approximately an extra £15,000 annual turnover.

Hilton Smythe highly advise early viewing as this business is likely to attract considerable interest.
