City Business Brokers are pleased to bring to the market this busy and well-loved Tea Room and Bistro located in a very well-known market town in Staffordshire.
Operating from well-fitted and presented premises, the business currently primarily offers a full and varied in-house menu of “homemade” classic hot and cold food, snacks, sandwiches, lunches, side orders, pastries and beverages prepared freshly to order in its fully equipped catering facilities and served in the pleasant surroundings of an attractively period-furnished dining area which may comfortably accommodate up to 85 covers (3 levels).
There is scope for continued growth, not least with regard to longer opening hours to provide more wine and dining evenings, a degree of menu and product expansion and the possible provision of local delivery and outside catering services which would also provide added revenues.
The business may also benefit greatly by adopting a far more vigorous marketing policy of its excellent existing facilities and services, particularly with reference to the introduction of online advertising and ordering in order to improve upon the already high levels of turnover and profitability it has achieved since being established in its present form some eight successful years ago by the current owner. We would strongly recommend the earliest possible viewing to avoid disappointment.
Points to note:
• New Kitchen refurbishment (circa £70,000)
• Licenced premises which will allow for longer opening hours i.e. 7.30am to 10.00pm, hence greater revenue and maybe extend opening to Sundays
Current turnover: In the region of £130000+ with huge scope to increase. Note: It is possible to earn £1500 on a Saturday alone.
