The business for sale is a busy local café situated in a close-knit part of Cornwall. Serving delicious favourites such as sandwiches, scones, cakes and sweet treats, the café has garnered a great mix of loyal customers, including regular locals, passing trade and returning tourists.
Under current ownership since October 2018 but having been a café at this site for years, the business acts as a social hub of the local community, catering to families, friends and other groups in a relaxed environment. Cooking and serving locally sourced food, the café has gained a base of returning customers and a superb reputation in the area.
The café benefits from an excellent reputation, with a TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellent 2019, rated 4th out of 10 in the Camelford area and a 4.5/5 rating from 71 reviews of which 64 are either excellent or very good. It also has a great social media following, with 491 followers on Facebook and rated 5 out of 5 from 29 reviews.
Boasting a very prominent position within the town, next to the River Camel and opposite the main town car park, it is in a very visible position for tourists and passing trade.
Operations run from a large unit split into two adjoining areas, both very attractively furnished throughout following recent redecoration. There is a takeaway area with counter, kitchen facilities, a coffee machine, oven and fridge. Three steps lead down to the main seating area which seats 22 covers. To the rear is a fully-fitted kitchen, before reaching the tea garden which has around 20 covers and an outside toilet accessed via a side path.
The business benefits from a team of one full time and 4 part time members of staff.
The current owner would be willing to stay on for a transitional period to hand the business over smoothly.
Appealing to a current café owner looking to expand, or a first-time buyer, the business would make a profitably acquisition to a dedicated new owner.
This is an excellent opportunity to take on a well-established café and tea garden which has undergone a recent refurbishment and is ideally located in a popular north Cornish town, with significant passing trade and genuine opportunities for future growth.
Well-suited to an experienced caterer or couple, the new owner could look to grow the business in a multitude of ways. Extending opening hours to include evenings and Sundays, possibly trading as a bistro, and obtaining an alcohol licence would add an exciting, lucrative arm to the business. Offering a delivery service or introducing a catering service would also be great ways to boost profits.
