This popular family pizzeria, situated in Chesham, Buckinghamshire, offers great food at a reasonable cost and delights in providing excellent customer service.
Located on a busy high street, the restaurant attracts footfall through both regular and new customers visiting the area. With a friendly atmosphere, this cheerful pizzeria specialises in sourdough pizzas, as well as a range of pastas, sandwiches, coffees and cakes. The restaurant also has full licence to sell alcohol and currently offers a selection of wines, spirits and beer. The sale of alcohol clearly boosts the profits as there is a good return.
With brilliant reviews on both Facebook and TripAdvisor, this restaurant is well-established within the community and is a family-favourite. The business is now for sale on a leasehold basis.
The restaurant can cater for between 16-20 diners inside and six outside (weather dependent). The restaurant has a classic and minimalist ambiance, with a range of relaxed seating including sofas and easy chairs, as well as the traditional tables and chairs. The pizzeria has a warm and inviting atmosphere, and consists of an open-plan seating area, a large counter, a kitchen area, and a toilet. In addition, there is a specific storage area which is utilised excellently as well as other space available in the restaurant which has also been utilised for storage. 11 years remain on the current lease and rent stands at only £1080 per month.
The restaurant has a strong social media presence, with great reviews, as well as a website. Often fully booked on Friday and Saturday nights, it attracts a good mix of clientele; from retired couples and manual workers in the day to young professionals and families on an evening.
Benefitting from a busy location with parking and rail access close by, this business has the potential to develop and boost profits even further in the future by expanding the takeaway/delivery side of the business, re-evaluating restaurant pricing and extending business hours (the restaurant currently opens Tuesday to Saturday and is closed on Sundays and Mondays). The business specifically benefits from trade on Wednesdays and Saturdays, as these are market days, so the high street is very busy.
This opportunity would suit an experienced pizza chef with a passion for cooking and maintaining the pizzeria’s brilliant reputation. As the pizzeria is going from strength to strength, this would suit a buyer with time to develop the business to its full potential, with the current owners suggesting the potential to double the current turnover.
The owners are willing to stay for a transition period, as required.
