Established 20 years ago, the business for sale is renowned as a warm welcoming cafe, based in a prime location, on a busy road in an affluent area of Preston in Lancashire.
The café is popular within the vicinity for its excellent customer service and the offering of high-quality breakfast and lunch items, drinks as well as mouth-watering desserts.
The café is based from high-quality premises and the business is for sale on a leasehold basis with a huge potential for growth.
The café operates from high-quality premises with a bay front window greeting the general public. Internally, there is a spacious seating area, seating 10 diners – although there is room for expansion. Directly adjacent is a counter leading to the kitchen, a store room and preparation area and a small toilet. Externally there is a back yard.
Equipment included in the sale are: a display unit, fridge display, refrigerated cake display, pie warmer, fridge, freezer, microwave, hot plate, panini grill, Hotpoint Ultima dishwasher, a meat slicer, a double and single fryer and an oven.
The current owner is also willing to stay on for a transitional period of one week.
This is a fantastic opportunity to acquire a successful local café with bags of potential to increase turnover.
Currently the business is successful with only word-of-mouth referrals, which means it would profit from advertising. The business is not present online so there is a keen opportunity to create a website for the café, which could be used to promote certain aspects of the menu. This would give the business further exposure along with the opportunity to market to a wider audience.
A new buyer could also partner with food delivery services such as UberEATS and Deliveroo, exposing the bar to a younger audience. The business could also increase its offering to boost trade further. For example, the café could be created into a perfect fish and chip shop as there is no similar competition around within a 3-mile radius. A deli would be another viable option for the buyer. Extending opening hours and seating provision may also see a greater uptake of customers.
