Café & Snack Bar in an Industrial Area in Essex
- Excellent reputation
- Loyal customer base
- Spacious premises
- Equipment included
- Friendly, professional team
The business for sale is a café and snack bar, which is based in an industrial area in Canvey Island, Essex.
The vendor initially bought this business towards the end of 2020 and first began operating in March 2021. Since then, the business has grown significantly and has gained a loyal customer base and an excellent reputation in the local area.
The café prioritises providing excellent customer service while serving a wide range of delicious meals at affordable prices. The business also offers mobile and event catering.
The company provide their own delivery service, as well as delivering through Just Eat and UberEATS. They cover 26 inside, an additional 16 outside, and have a hygiene rating of 5-stars.
The friendly, professional team is currently made up of 2 full-time employees, who have an in-depth knowledge of the business and have excellent relationships with their customers.
As the business is growing, it could be a great idea to look into hiring a third member of staff. Currently, the owner does not actively work at the café, so an owner who could come in regularly would be beneficial.
It’s worth noting, that the buyer would need to change the name of the business as the owner will be using it for her other catering trailers.
The café has an ideal location in a light industrial area in Canvey Island, with on-site car parking and proximity to other local businesses. Most importantly, there is no local competition and a high rate of footfall, which means there will be plenty of passing trade for the new owner.
The premises were custom-built to cater for all the surrounding businesses.
All equipment will transfer over with the business sale, including tables, chairs, ovens, microwaves, cutlery, crockery, extraction system, POS system, and the Just Eat and UberEATS machines.
The current owners are happy to provide a business handover, in order to ensure a smooth transition.
This would be the ideal opportunity for someone, who is looking to run their own busy café.
There is huge potential for growth with this business, as there is massive scope to increase the company’s online presence. Currently, the business doesn’t have a website, so setting up a website could be a great move for the business and should attract further trade.
The business has two brilliant social media pages, with almost 1,000 likes on Facebook and around 100 followers on Instagram. These popular channels are an excellent sales window for the business. It would be beneficial if the new owner continued to optimise and utilise these platforms.
