Popular Inviting Café in West Malling
- Well Equipped Business
- Excellent Reputation
- Accommodation Included
An exciting opportunity to take on this popular café in the centre of West Malling, Kent is now available for purchase by a committed buyer.
Trading since 2003, the business has acquired a returning customer base and receives plenty of passing trade due to its homemade treats and attractive, comfortable environment.
Under current ownership since 2017 and now only up for sale due to relocation, a new owner could easily continue running operations thanks to the café’s fully-fitted premises and established reputation within the local community.
Established for approximately 15 years, the business has gained a strong following of local regular customers as well as appealing to those passing through the area. Favoured for its homemade sweet treats, breakfast and lunch options, all offered at competitive prices, the café caters to a range of dietary requirements including those looking for gluten-free food. Customers can choose to dine in and enjoy the family friendly environment or opt for a delivery or takeaway.
The cafe operates from a double-fronted, terraced property with ample space for diners. Its simple yet attractive frontage entices passing customers into the café, greeted by a well-decorated, warmly-lit seating area accommodating 32 covers. Directly ahead, freshly-baked goods are displayed and beyond this, a preparation area which houses a griddle, fridges and freezers and other useful equipment.
Above the café is a one bedroom flat which provides an added stream of revenue to the current owner.
With minimal advertising in place, the cafes client base is mainly built on word of mouth recommendations, as well as its active Facebook page which promotes special offers.
This is a brilliant opportunity to acquire a reputable café, favoured amongst the local community for its delicious homemade food, reasonable prices and relaxing atmosphere.
Well-suited to a current café owner looking to take on another successful venture, or an individual looking for an easy and expandable lifestyle business, a new owner could take steps to develop the café further.
As current trading hours run from 9am-3:30pm six days a week and closing at 2pm on Sunday, extending opening hours to take advantage of early morning and late afternoon trade would be highly beneficial. Combined with the fact that a competitor in the area has recently closed, this will inevitably add to turnover. Increasing the area of coverage for delivery would also bring about further custom.
