The business for sale is a reputable Italian café and deli situated in the heart of Bristol.
Operating since October 2017, the café has fast become a popular establishment amongst Bristol residents in this busy central location. There are 5 new, recently completed residential buildings nearby as well as offices, all bringing in ample trade. Offering high quality coffee, breakfast and lunch options, the café has generated a strong financial profile and excellent reputation since inception, only strengthened by its online reviews and word of mouth.
Due to the current owner’s plans to relocate, the business now requires a passionate and driven new owner to take the reigns and lead this café to increased success.
The café’s is largely recognised for its tasty and filling lunches, including the speciality, in-house smoked beef. Sourdough subs and risotto boxes are also extremely popular and contribute significantly to the café’s turnover, along with the busy morning coffee trade. Whilst the café is currently run by the owner and one part time member of stall, the business is still able to offer a fast and friendly service to those rushing to get to work. Its customer base mainly comprises the younger market; mostly those aged 26-35.
Upon purchasing the café, the current owner spent £30,000 fitting out the premises, complete with brand new equipment, all of which is included in the sale. The café is a modern glass fronted premises, through which customers enter straight into the bright, naturally lit seating area with 11 covers. Directly ahead is a large serving counter with drinks chiller and beyond this, an open plan, well-equipped kitchen area with large extraction fan immediately behind.
This is a brilliant opportunity to take on a well-frequented café which operates as a deli and takeaway and has a superb reputation in a very busy area.The business would suit an owner-operator, either individual or couple, with experience of running a café or similar business. Plenty of scope presents itself to an interested buyer.
Potential for outside catering exists due to its position amongst numerous offices. Lunchtime meetings or business functions could be catered to with pre-prepared buffets, which would inevitably bring in increased revenue. A delivery service would also have a similar effect. Although the business does have a website, this could do with an update and be complemented by additional use of social media to help the café gain a wider audience and new customers. The existing owner would be willing to stay on for a transitional period as required, to ensure a smooth handover of business operations.
