Ice-Cream Parlour Located In Padstow
Prime Harbour Front Position
(Trades March - October)
This delightful Ice Cream Parlour is located in the quaint fishing port of Padstow which lies on Cornwall's north coast. Centred around the attractive harbour this bustling town is an eclectic mix of fisherman's cottages and merchant's houses. Whilst fishing and the port's trade have declined over the centuries the void has been readily filled by establishing itself as one of Cornwall's premiere holiday resorts. The success of the town can be attributed to its inherent charms but there is no denying that a certain celebrity chef probably contributed to putting Padstow back on the map. The up market holiday resort of Rock brings tourists over daily by ferry across the estuary and busy town of Wadebridge is just 5 miles away.
Asking Price: £299,950 plus SAV (£500)
Veritas Business Sales are delighted to offer for sale this very popular Ice Cream Parlour which is located in the Cornish seaside town of Padstow. The business was in fact established by our clients 12 years ago and now being offered for sale so that they can enjoy a well deserved retirement. Since ownership they have refurbished the premises and continually invested in new equipment along with fixtures and 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. The business is owner operated with the help of 9 part time members of staff and has an annual turnover of circa £260,000. Harbour Ice serves a fine range of ice creams, cream tea's, cold drinks, milk shakes freshly made specialist coffee and fruit teas. These can be enjoyed on the premises over looking the stunning harbour or taken away. We believe that there is further potential to increase revenue by expanding upon the current opening times and by continuing to trade during the winter months. The business enjoys a strong reputation within the local community and beyond and as such has a high level of regular and repeat trade along with many visiting tourists. This is a superb opportunity to purchase an established business which is a great base to build upon and as such early viewing is highly recommended as this gem is not to be missed.
