Friendly, Healthy Café in Leicester
- Excellent reputation and loyal customer base
- Well-equipped, recently refurbished premises
- Equipment included
- Locally sourced produce
- Low overheads
A fantastic opportunity to purchase an innovative café in Leicester has recently emerged. The business specialises in both coffee and tea, whilst also offering a breakfast and lunch menu that is available to consume inside the premises or to take away.
The café prides itself in catering to a wide range of different diets and allergies- such as vegan, dairy free and gluten free- whilst also serving as a crucial meeting point within the local community for all 7 days a week. They also offer a delivery service through Deliveroo.
The tantalising breakfast menu includes a variety of dishes, such as homemade pancakes, creamy porridge, and bagels with a choice of fillings. Meanwhile, the lunchtime menu offers a delicious choice of signature ‘nourish bowls’, sandwiches and wraps. A monthly afternoon tea event is held every month, whilst standard afternoon teas can be booked by any customer for any date and time of their choice. All of the coffee is fair-trade, and locally baked sweet treats are also available.
The café is situated in a prime location on a busy high street in the suburbs of Leicester, in close proximity to the university. The business stands out amongst the redbrick terraces due to its contemporary wood-panelled black and white signage. Upon entering the premises, customers are welcomed to the aroma of fresh coffee and a cosy atmosphere. A sleek, black tiled counter with white branding is available for customers to order from. A black chalkboard displays the menu and customers can choose from an array of freshly baked goods that are also presented here. Chairs, benches, and leather sofas are available with rustic wooden tables in a variety of arrangements to cater for parties of all sizes. Spotlights and black hanging lamps add a warm glow to the space, whilst modern art adds the finishing touch.
The business’s website offers modern presentation of the café’s menu, photographs, and their history, alongside the option of purchasing coffee grounds and food vouchers.
Coffee Ethic has established excellent roots within its surrounding environment, becoming a vital pillar in the local community and catering for individual dietary needs. It would be a great purchase for an investor with experience in the food and beverage industry, or a previous café manager who is searching for a unique business with an innovative approach.
The café’s financials could be grown further by expanding its calendar of events, building upon the success of its monthly afternoon teas. It could also work in partnership with local organisations or community groups who are in need of a regular meeting venue. With its close proximity to the university, the café could hold a stand at the institution’s student union and offer a student discount to build its appeal to this lucrative demographic. There is also scope to develop the business’s social media strategy to effectively utilise its current combined Facebook and Instagram following of 1,100.
