This is a unique opportunity to acquire a high-class licensed café and gift shop, which has a prime location in the beautiful Derbyshire town of Bakewell, with a high rate of passing footfall.

The business was first established in 2000 by its current owner and has operated successfully since its creation, whilst also gaining an excellent reputation and a loyal customer base in the local community.

The café prioritises providing their customers with an extensive menu of delicious items, including breakfasts, sandwiches, toasties, baked potatoes, salads, a small selection of hot meals, as well as hot and cold drinks and a variety of cakes and puddings.

As the business is licensed, they also serve house wine, gins, prosecco, lagers, and bitters. Furthermore, the coffee shop also has a section allocated to cards and gifts, which provides a brilliant additional revenue stream.

The café’s brilliant reputation is further enforced by many highly positive reviews, which they have amassed online. (Just take a look on Google!) This is thanks to their high-quality food offering and friendly customer service.

The owner has reluctantly decided to sell as they now wish to retire. This thriving café would be the perfect opportunity for someone, who is looking to acquire a successful business in an excellent location.

The café has a prime location in the centre of Bakewell and is situated within proximity of nearby car parking and other local businesses. Most importantly, the premises benefit from a high rate of passing footfall, which should ensure plenty of trade for the new owner. The coffee shop is situated on the first floor of a modern building complex, with the ground floor occupied by several businesses, including a florist, barbers, cheese shop, and ice cream parlour.

The café has a welcoming 62-cover air-conditioned dining area, which is light and airy, creating a welcoming environment.

All equipment will be included in the sale, meaning the new owner can get to work straight away following the acquisition.

The current owner is happy to provide an initial transitional period, in order to ensure there is a smooth and efficient business handover.

This thriving business would be the perfect opportunity for someone energetic, who is looking to acquire an established, successful café in a prominent and beautiful location.

There is huge potential for growth with this business, as there is a massive opportunity to increase the card and gift range. In addition to this, extending the trading hours and updating the food menu, could help attract new clientele. Earlier opening hours would enable the business to tap into the breakfast market, generating increased sales.

Furthermore, it may also be beneficial to grow the company’s online presence and invest in some advertising, which the business has previously spent very little money on. Therefore, there is huge scope to extend the client base in this regard.
