Busy Deli in Leeds City Centre
- Central location
- Strong reputation
- Locally sourced produce
- Friendly and efficient service
- 5* food and hygiene rating
An exciting opportunity has arisen for an interested buyer to acquire a thriving deli in a major UK city.
Since its establishment in 2004, the business has acquired a great reputation amongst its customers, known for its quality produce and friendly staff.
Serving hot and cold food and beverages from both breakfast and lunchtime menus during weekdays from 07:00-15:00 and is fully staffed and managed by a full-time manager and assistant manager. Through serving freshly made food using locally-sourced produce, the family-run café has acquired a loyal customer base, visited by office workers and shoppers alike.
Both its location and reputation provide a strong foundation for the business to be expanded by its future owner.
The business operates from a well-equipped, single fronted property. Upon entering the café, the customer immediately notices its unique and classic style, furnished with dark wood tables and chairs. The inside seating area accommodates 22 covers, whilst 12 can be seated outside the front of the cafe. A montage of black and white pictures decorates the wall opposite a large counter which almost stretches the full length of the café. The counter has two separate serve over counters which display the range of deli items. It is also used by staff for preparing drinks and is complete with a coffee machine. Above this area, various blackboard menus list what the café offers. A fridge for cold drinks and shelving unit for other snacks stands next to the counter.
The cafe boasts a strong corporate offering, having developed strong B2B relationships with prominent companies in Leeds. The business also has a strong online presence and allows customers to view their menus and opening hours.
To continue the success of the business, the new owner would ideally have experience within the catering industry or a passion for locally-sourced produce and good service.
There are numerous ways by which the business could be expanded by a new owner. Offering a delivery service would increase sales from those not able to get to the café in person. Extending the corporate menu aimed at nearby offices would create easily manageable lunchtime hours. Such a menu could be used to expand upon the business's corporate offering, particularly with new office developments along at the Waterfront on Whitehall Road as well as the Wellington Place developments. Acquiring an alcohol licence for the business alongside extending opening hours would create a different avenue by which further trade could be gained.
