Veritas Business Sales are delighted to offer for sale this outstanding Ice Cream & Dessert Parlour which is located in Sutton Coldfield. The business was established by the current owners 3 years ago and is now being offered for sale so that they can concentrate on other projects. Since ownership they have completely extended, renovated, refurbished and invested in new equipment along with fixtures & fittings which are all bought and paid for and included within the sale price which is a huge plus for any new purchaser as additional funds will not need to be spent for some time. Sweet The Dessert Shop is overseen by the directors but mainly operated by a team of 3 full time & 8 part time members of staff and has a high turnover which can be discussed on application. They serve a fine range of waffles, crepes, cookie dough, sundaes, ice creams, galetos, sorbet’s, cakes, cheesecakes, shakes, fruit platters, specialist teas & coffees and cold drinks. All fayre is prepared on site using high quality produce and can be enjoyed in the inviting and newly refurbished restaurant or can be taken away or even delivered to your doorstep via the online portal Just Eat. We believe that the business would benefit from a husband & wife combination or a family of owner operators which would keep operating costs down and increase profitability. The business has built a strong reputation within the local community and beyond and as such has a high level of regular and repeat trade along with plenty new passing trade. This is a superb opportunity to purchase a ready made turnkey business where all the hard work has been done which is a great base to build upon and as such early viewing is highly recommended as this business is not to be missed.
