* REDUCED * Popular Eatery and Takeaway in Ash Vale, Hampshire

The business for sale is a well-established café just footsteps away from the local train station. Known for its exceptional cleanliness and good quality food, the eatery is a perfect opportunity for a new buyer with a passion for hospitality.
The 5-star hygiene rating reflects the standard of service kept up by the owner for 10 years. Popular with the locals, they offer a variety of food and drink offers. Their early bird breakfast is extremely reasonable and convenient for passers-by from the local train station. The tag line promises great British food and the owner’s reputation boasts a quick and professional service.
This is an excellent opportunity to acquire a well established and immaculately presented café. The owner is set to purchase the freehold in the next few years and will renew lease for if the new buyer should want to purchase.
Outside of the premises, there is bright décor and outside tables and chair, sheltered by the premises. Inside there is room for approximately 40 covers, complete with CCTV for added security. At the back of the café is a counter for drinks and a kitchen fitted with modern appliances, fridges and a preparation room as well as toilets and washing facilities.
The menus are clearly displayed near the counter and there is a front fridge presenting the baked goods near the till. They have high chairs for young children and a barista coffee machine that serves a variety of hot drinks. The artwork on the walls complement the blackboard style menus which are displayed above the tables and chairs at eye level. The café also has a unit at the back which is used as a storage room. The owner has fresh bread and food delivered daily.
The café has a friendly atmosphere and offers fantastic customer service, paving the way for future growth. Due to the nature of this small café, the ideal candidate could either be an experienced entrepreneur or an existing trader in a similar service.
To grow the business the potential buyer could experiment with digital marketing which would boost the revenue and local interest. Using social media to advertise their menu online and generate reviews would have a knock-on effect on their customer engagement. The business already boasts 5- star reviews on Yell from locals so would benefit from having an online presence.
The current owner closes every day at 3:00 pm. To have access to extra revenue, perhaps the new buyer could extend the opening hours into the evening. The current owners would be willing to stay on for a short-term transitional period to familiarise the new owner with business operations.
