Well-Established & Popular Coffee Shop in Lydney
- Excellent Reputation
- Huge Growth Potential
- Low Overheads
- Equipment Included
- Spacious Premises
This is a fantastic opportunity to acquire a well-established and popular coffee shop, which opens seven days a week from March to November and has an ideal location in the beautiful grounds of Bathurst Park in Lydney, Gloucestershire.
First established in 2000, the current owner took over the business in 2018 and has experienced significant growth. Over the past few years, the coffee shop has built up an excellent reputation in the local community and has gained a loyal, repeat customer base.
The coffee shop offers exclusive freshly ground coffee, homemade cakes, a selection of paninis and toasties, delicious milkshakes, made from Marshfield ice cream, and much more.
The coffee shop hosts a wide range of events each year, many of which are organised in collaboration with the local council. These events are a brilliant way to bring in custom, resulting in increased revenue throughout the year. Currently, events include Easter egg hunts and parties in the park, but there is massive scope to expand in this area.
Located in the gorgeous Bathurst Park, the coffee shop attracts a large volume of families, as well as locals and tourists coming for a walk in the beautiful grounds. The park is the perfect place to relax and unwind, with well-kept gardens, vast sports fields, and a variety of trails.
Alongside the owner, the friendly, professional team currently comprises four part-time members of staff, who have developed excellent customers relationships.
The well-equipped property has an ideal location in Bathurst Park. The spacious premises cover 42 inside and a further 30 on the patio outside. The shop is rented from the council, with the council covering 50% of the annual electricity and insurance bills.
All equipment will be included in the sale, including 1 x coffee machine, 1 x coffee grinder, 1 x ice machine, 1 x patisserie display fridge, 2 x tills, 2 x milkshake machines, 1 x smoothie blender, 1 x under counter dishwasher, 1 x 4-piece toaster, 1 x cooker, 1 x fat fryer, 1 x panini machine, 1 x sandwich preparation bench and fridge unit, 3 x microwaves, 1 x under counter fridge, 1 x under counter freezer, all cutlery and crockery, 2 x wall-mounted fans, and 1 x jacket potato machine.
Additionally, everything in the storeroom will also transfer over, including all the shelving, the larder fridges, the four-tier locker, and the metal lockers for chemicals.
The current owner is happy to offer an initial transitional period.
This would be the perfect business for anyone looking for a popular coffee shop in a beautiful location, which presents a brilliant lifestyle opportunity.
There is huge potential for growth with this business, as currently the coffee shop only opens between March and November. Therefore, the new owner could opt to open the company for 52 weeks a year. As the business has full support from LTC and the trust of Bathurst Park, there is incredible scope for the new owner to take the coffee shop to the next level.
Furthermore, it would be a brilliant idea to consider hosting themed evening events, birthday parties, sports events, as well as opening up the venue for private hire. The coffee shop could even be used as as an evening restaurant.
In addition to this, the new owner could consider looking into bouncy castle hire, as this would fit with the company’s family clientele.
Finally, it could be a great idea to offer a ring and order sevrice, as well as sandwich collections.
