Location, Location, Location! This is a rare opportunity to acquire a modern and well fitted out unit on the busy Caxton Gibbet Park services on the A428 close to Cambourne, just outside of Cambridge.
The site currently has a total of 4 retail outlets with McDonalds, Costa Coffee and Subway occupying the other units. This together with the Shell petrol station opposite ensures there is always a constant flow of customers arriving. In addition we understand that there is very significant development planned on the land in the immediate vicinity of the site including thousands of new homes and a commercial retail park. This will no doubt make this location even busier than it already is.
Whilst being sold as a going concern the unit could be used for alternative food and drink operations subject to any consents that may be required. This may well then appeal to existing operators who are looking to expand and who are seeking a prime located unit for their own brand.
THE BUSINESS ITSELF
The current owner established the business in 2019 and is now only reluctantly looking to sell due to a need to have to relocate for family reasons. In this time the vendor has invested in the premises which are now fitted out to a high standard and provide a good range of catering equipment and fixtures.
Offering a delightful, cooked to order, menu focusing on traditional Italian and English cuisine, the business provides a different option to the usual service station fare. Because of this they now find that they have become popular with the local community as well as those who are just passing by on their travels. This has been further helped by the provision of a home delivery service.
We are advised by the vendor that the business now enjoys a weekly turnover in the region of £5,000 but with the new developments coming in the area one would expect this to increase significantly in the future.
ALL MEASUREMENTS ARE APPROXIMATE AND FOR GUIDANCE ONLY.
