Now on the market is a quaint village café and coffee shop in Great Glen, Leicestershire. As a successful family-run business, the café is valued by its customers for outstanding, friendly service. The owners have lived and grown up in the village for decades, allowing for a truly personal and homely atmosphere to develop in the café. A total of 25 covers are available in the recently renovated premises.
Customers also appreciate the café’s scrumptious which features a mix of culinary staples, including hot and cold food for breakfast, lunch, and snack breaks. The freshly baked sweet treats are a particular favourite to accompany the café’s delicious tea, coffee, or hot chocolate, all served efficiently and at a reasonable price. Sunday roast dinners are also available for an indulgent treat at the end of the week. The business boasts a 5* hygiene rating, evident in the immaculately clean premises and fresh cooking on-site.
The cosy café is situated on a parade of three shops in the idyllic village of Great Glen, a mere 20 minute drive from Leicester’s city centre.
Upon entering the premises, customers immediately access the seating area and serving bar to the right of the entrance. Behind the serving bar, guests can see the staff cooking their order from scratch. The seating area is spacious and there is flexibility to rearrange the seating plan as necessary to accommodate different group sizes. The interior has been refurbished to a fantastic standard, with contemporary grey walls and LED lighting bringing a fresh take on the café’s vintage furniture and décor. All food and drink is served with colourful, patterned crockery, much of which is authentic bone china. Toward the rear of the property is a pantry for food storage, as well as WC facilities.
Equipment is included in the sale and a full inventory is available upon request. Unfortunately, a transitional period is not available with this sale.
The business would be the perfect acquisition for a local family who want to continue operating the café in a similar friendly fashion to the previous owners.
The café could however be developed further. For example, the business’s impressive Facebook page would provide the ideal platform for social media advertising. The business could also extend its popular calendar of events and rent the space to host private parties.
The café would likely benefit from extending its opening hours to attract more customers with different schedules, as well as introducing a takeaway and/or delivery option for its menu. This would be especially favourable amongst its younger clientele and encourage additional orders.
