This well-liked café has been popular amongst the local community since it opened 30 years ago, affording an excellent reputation for its high quality food and friendly service.
Under current ownership since January 2017, the café is known for serving freshly prepared breakfasts, lunches, Sunday lunches and other hot and cold food, available to eat in or take away. The café also boasts other lucrative avenues, including event catering and an efficient delivery service.
Catering to a varied client base, including those from the local sixth form as well as OAPs, the café offers affordable food for everyone. The local church uses the café to hold events, and the business also acquires trade when ledge races are on.
The premises boasts a spacious area which can accommodate 33 covers through a range of seating. Towards the back of the seating area is a customer counter, blackboard menu and drinks fridge, with an open plan kitchen which contains all essential equipment, inclusive of an 8-burner gas stove, 2 double fryers and a George Forman grill. An inventory of equipment that comes with the sale is available on request.
A suitable acquisition for anyone interested or experienced in the food service or catering industry looking for a profitable lifestyle business, a new owner could take steps to develop the café further.
A stronger marketing effort online such as through social media platforms would see the business grow a larger customer base and experience more sales. Developing the delivery and catering side of the business would also predict greater figures at the end of the next financial year.
The current owner is willing to stay on for a transitional period in order to hand the business over smoothly.
