This is a unique opportunity to acquire an eco-friendly café, which is based in the heart of East London. This business was first established in 2018 and has grown steadily ever since its creation, whilst also gaining an excellent reputation and a loyal customer base in the local community.
The café was born from a desire to combine speciality coffee and soul-warming food, presented in a green and natural environment. They combine a café and greenery in a unique and effortless way, in order to create a calming ambience. The coffee shop is partnered with the best suppliers throughout London and the UK, aiming to source locally and sustainably.
They prioritise providing their customers with a wide variety of organic, sustainably sourced, and delicious items, including coffees, teas, fresh pastries, toasties, soups, muesli, and much more.
In 2019, the business was accoladed as the best coffee shop in London at The Barratt London Awards. The café’s brilliant reputation is further enforced by the many highly positive reviews the business has amassed across Facebook, Google, and TripAdvisor.
The business covers 26 inside and a further 8 outside. Currently, the café holds an impressive 5-star hygiene rating, which is a testament to the café's cleanliness. Additionally, the coffee shop has recently arranged to sell their goods through Deliveroo, but this hasn’t started yet.
The business has an excellent location in Bethnal Green, East London, with good transport links and proximity to other local businesses. Most importantly, there is high passing footfall, which should ensure plenty of trade for the new owner.
Upon entry to the premises, you will see hanging plants and a food counter. There are window seats situated all along the front of the café, which look over the high street. At the counter itself, there is a coffee machine and display for the pastries. Toilets, further seating, and a fire door are located further back. The kitchen area is behind the counter.
All equipment will transfer over with the sale, including 1 x La Marzocco Linea PB 2 Group coffee machine, 1 x panini press, 1 x oven, 1 x ban-mairie, 2 x kettles, 1 x portable induction hob, 1 x commercial dishwasher, all plates and cups, and much more.
A time-limited handover period can be negotiated with the owner, to ensure a swift and efficient transition.
This would be the ideal opportunity for an owner-operator with previous experience in the sector, who is looking to acquire their own business.
There is huge potential for growth with this business, as there are massive opportunities to expand the opening hours and apply for an alcohol license. Furthermore, it would be a great idea to push Deliveroo orders.
The café already has a brilliant, easy-to-use website and two popular social media channels, with 1,300 followers on Instagram and almost 400 followers on Facebook. These platforms act as a great sales window for the business. It would be beneficial if the new owner continued to utilise and optimise these online channels.
