Hilton Smythe are delighted to present to the market 1 of Kent's most well established Subway Franchises with over 10 years trading history in this busy shopper’s High street.

Our client purchased the franchise just over 7 years ago following 2 years working within the branch and now due to ill health she must relocate from the UK.

Like all businesses in Dover, it is affected by the considerable footfall increase throughout the summer months where weekly turnover can average at around £6,000 per week.

The Subway brand ensures consistent quality from the level of service, Sandwich choices and drinks. The first Subway opened in the U.K.  in 1996 and since expanded at an exceptional rate which continues to expand.

The UK head office is based in Cambridge, offering support on R & D, Leasing, customer services, training and franchisee services.

This store is completely staff managed with minimal input from our client, any new owner may continue with this structure of operation or take a more hands on control which would 

significantly reduce the labour costs taking the adjusted net profit over the £60,000 level.

Our client has identified that due to her absence from this country due to her father's health, some of her normal sales activities have been missed resulting in a slight drop in turnover.

This can be very quickly addressed with more physical time being present to drive the external sales needed to hit the targets set by our client.

In the summer months, our client’s excellent relationships with the training offices at the Port results in 3-4 platter orders per week. Other business lunch relationships have been established with other offices and nurseries.

A full business handover will be offered by our client.

This successful and profitable franchise resale would suit any person with a storng catering background looking to purchase a lower risk new opportunity.

This business is available at a price to sell quick and considerably under the minimum investment required to start up a new franchise where there’s no goodwill or stable sales in place.

A recent refurb in 2015 means any new owner will not have to worry about any additional refurb cost until 2022
