A brilliant opportunity has arisen for an interested buyer to acquire a quaint, cosy tearoom situated in Tonbridge. Since 2016, the tearoom has been providing its customers with a range of traditional food and drink, prepared fresh on site everyday.
Now, only up for sale due to the lifestyle change of its current owner, the business requires a buyer committed to driving the business forward to fulfil its true potential.
With only a year in operation, the business has garnered a widely held reputation within the local area, preferred by local residents and out of town shoppers alike.
The tearoom has made a name for itself through serving a variety of homemade cakes and scones as well as hot and cold drinks, jacket potatoes and a range of other favourable lunch options.
Operations run from a multi-fronted, detached property, easily noticeable from street level. The café’s interior is well designed, with quintessentially British bunting and white wooden furniture adorning the room, exuding a cosy and welcoming atmosphere. Upon entering, seating is placed to the left, with a large serving counter straight ahead, displaying some of the cafes delectable cakes and copious blackboards listing other delicious items. Behind this is a food preparation area which boasts vital equipment including two minis fridges and freezers, a panini machine, a coffee grinder and coffee machine on lease. The main seating area is upstairs which possesses room for 30 covers. Externally, an outside customer seating area accommodates 28 covers under cover of an electric awning.
With minimal expenditure on advertising, the business has grown its solid customer base through word of mouth recommendation and its active Facebook page.
Intelligent Business Transfer are pleased to bring to the market this great opportunity to acquire a coffee shop with a busy location and wide-ranging customer base.
The success of the business largely resides in its prominent river side position visited by many, as well as its high quality produce, helping to generate an annual turnover of £78,000.
Appealing to a current café owner or a potential buyer looking to acquire a café with a sought after situation, the new owner could take various steps to further improve the business. Extending opening hours to accommodate late afternoon trade could be highly advantageous in attracting post-work customers. The creation of an easy to use and informative website would also add significantly to its marketing campaign, especially if an e-commerce platform were to be introduced.
The current owner is willing to stay on for a transitional period to be discussed, in order to hand the business over to a new owner.
