This is an amazing opportunity to acquire an award-winning and unique pottery café, which has an ideal location in the beautiful market town on Wallingford in Oxfordshire.
The business was first established in 2015, with the current owner taking over in 2018. Under the present ownership, the company has continued to operate successfully, whilst also building up a loyal client base and an excellent reputation for their craft activities and flavoursome food.
Customers can come and choose blank pottery shapes to paint a unique piece from many bisque shapes, whilst enjoying delicious cakes, barista coffees, and loose-leaf teas in a cosy café setting. The business operates from a 30-seater creative pottery café, which is decorated in a tasteful manner.
The shop also offers a range of retail Decopatch supplies for customers to buy or create in-store, personal commission pieces, as well as children’s and adult's parties in their private 15-seater party room. Of course, customers can also just visit for coffee and cake without having to craft: the café has a strong following for their high-quality coffee and cake.
The company also has an online shop, where customers can browse their range of gifts and crafts. Upon purchase, the items are then posted to customers, with the online shop acting as a brilliant additional revenue stream.
The company won ‘Best Children’s Business in Oxfordshire’ in 2016 with Muddy Stilettos and has been featured countless times in various blogs and newspapers. With low overhead costs and all equipment included, this thriving business would be the perfect opportunity for someone with experience in the catering industry.
This thriving paint-your-own-pottery cafe situated is in the heart of the beautiful market town of Wallingford in Oxfordshire, with a prime location on the central market square with high footfall.
Set over three floors the business currently utilises every available space with the cafe/server area and retail selling space on the ground floor, a kiln/workshop area out the back, and a further two floors of seating area. The building also has access to a currently unused long alley out the back which could be better developed and a large basement with easy access for storage.
Included in the sale is the full package, consisting of all fixtures and fittings and equipment such as a kiln, coffee machine, and white goods, everything as it currently stands to continue running the business including thousands of pounds of stock.
The current owner is happy to offer an initial transitional period, to ensure there is a smooth and efficient business handover.
This thriving business would be the perfect opportunity for someone, who has experience in the catering industry and is now looking to acquire their own unique and successful café business.
There is huge scope for growth with this business, as there is a massive opportunity to extend opening hours, so the café can benefit from evening trade. Furthermore, there is the option to begin offering additional services, such as regular adult craft workshops and adult painting evenings. There is also further potential to push sales through the business’s fully designed online shop.
Another area for growth is in franchising, the business is well set up with many hundreds of tools, designs, and documents that make it ideal to branch out into this area.
The well-designed and informative website attracts over 300 visitors per week, whilst the business also has a well-established and frequently visited TripAdvisor page and Facebook page with 99% 5-star reviews on both sites.
