New to the market is a wonderful café situated in the market town of Raunds in Northamptonshire.
The café’s versatile menu offers an excellent range of delicious and freshly-prepared food at reasonable price, including breakfast, lunch, light bites, children’s menus, Illy coffee, tea, and scrumptious homemade cakes. The breakfast menu has become especially reputable amongst the local community menu due to the customers’ ability to choose their own items and the high standard of food, whilst the variety of vegan and gluten-free options has further cemented the business’s popularity.
The cosy, friendly atmosphere is also highly valued amongst guests and has made the café a well-established social venue. Meanwhile, the 5* food hygiene rating and alcohol licence are further assets to the business.
The café enjoyed lucrative sales and profit figures before the Covid-19 pandemic whilst also possessing several avenues for future growth, therefore making this an ideal acquisition for a buyer with the drive to continue the café’s success through the pandemic and into the future.
The café is situated in a prime location in Raund’s high street and features a gorgeous white-brick exterior. The property’s interior is tastefully decorated in a rural, vintage style through its grey painted walls and displays of antique ornaments.
The premises are fully equipped and ready for the buyer to make a successful start to their ownership. The list of equipment included in the sale price features all kitchen ovens, microwaves, extractor fan, fridges, tables, chairs, cutlery and crockery, a Welsh dresser with antique, and much more.
Additionally, the current owner is willing to stay on for a transitional period, to ensure a smooth handover of business operations.
The business for sale would be ideally suited to a buyer with significant experience in the food and hospitality sector. For example, an existing café owner would find this to be a fantastic expansion opportunity.
Despite generating excellent levels of turnover before the Covid-19 pandemic, there are numerous methods which could be implemented to continue this success through the turbulence of the pandemic. For example, the new owner could introduce delivery for customers, an option that has proved extremely popular with consumers throughout lockdown and beyond into the present day. This could be achieved through hiring an in-house delivery driver, or by registering with a third-party delivery app such as JustEat or Deliveroo. Furthermore, the buyer could create a contemporary, informative website which gives clear information regarding the café and its menu offering.
