Charming Sandwich Shop and Catering Business in Cardiff
- Great reputation
- Varied menu
- Huge growth opportunity
- Loyal customer base
- Offers external catering
The business for sale is a friendly sandwich shop and catering company in Cardiff.
Currently owned and managed by a husband and wife team, the businesses began as a food van, quickly expanding into its existing premises - established in this form for 4 years, operating on a takeaway-only basis. It has accrued a loyal client base of repeat customers from the surrounding area, who all cherish the business for providing great quality food at an affordable price. The scrumptious menu includes sandwiches, baguettes, quesadillas, wraps and paninis with a variety of fillings, alongside jacket potatoes, salads, soft drinks and confectionary. A breakfast menu is available for early birds seeking a baguette or sandwich with a cooked breakfast filling.
The business has experienced great success and healthy financials despite only opening for a few hours per day, demonstrating the popularity of the business within the immediate community.
The business also offers a catering business where customers can choose from a range of menus and pay a set cost per guest, offering an economical option for buffet catering at events. Buffet boxes are available on a takeaway or delivery basis for smaller groups looking for a delicious lunch.
Posh Nosh Catering is located just outside of Cardiff’s city centre, in pleasant proximity to the River Taff and Sophia Gardens. Situated on a busy road of local businesses and frequented by commuters, the business benefits from high levels of footfall. It is a particularly popular destination for local workers to purchase their lunches from.
The shop is based on the ground floor of a terraced property and features vibrant, multi-coloured signage. The interior is small, hence operating solely on a takeaway basis, but offers ample room for both staff and customers. A fun chalkboard menu on the sidewall displays the varied food and drink offering, and customers can see their order being freshly prepared through the huge hot and cold glass food counters. An office space is available for staff to carry out business-related admin work and a preparation area is available for creating and gathering the catered orders. Unfortunately, a transitional period is not available for this sale.
This is a great opportunity to purchase a business within the food industry that enjoys working from both the fixes premises of a shop and the excitement of catering for events. It would be an ideal purchase for an investor who is looking to add a prime enterprise to their business portfolio. Currently only open between 11:00 am - 2:00 pm, expanding on the business's opening hours to capture both breakfast trade and commuters travelling home from work could see profit margins increase dramatically.
The business could be grown further by introducing an advertising campaign with the aim of generating greater brand awareness amongst the local community. Implementing loyalty cards would encourage repeat visits from customers. Curating a social media strategy could also be beneficial in fulfilling these two aims. The business may also receive more orders by expanding into a delivery service, or signing up for a popular third-party delivery app such as Deliveroo, Uber Eats, or Just Eat.
