The café occupies floor space within an indoor market in the town of Corby in Northamptonshire. The location is perfect as the indoor market provide an excellent level of regular footfall to the café from other stalls, including both new and regular customers.
Visitors enter the indoor market to find numerous stalls selling a variety of products, including clothing, jewellery, interiors, and a hair salon. The café is situated towards the rear of the market where customers can browse from a display of items. Behind this is a large kitchen, work area, and cooling cabinets for food. A spacious seating area is found at the front of the kitchen and work area, comfortably offering room for 15 tables with 4 seats each.
All equipment is incorporated in the sale price, including cookers, microwaves, fridges, dishwasher, coffee machine, and furniture. Unfortunately, a transitional period is not available with this sale.
This is would be the ideal acquisition for a local family in the town of Corby or its surrounding area, as the business presents itself as a great turnkey opportunity. Nonetheless, it would also be suitable for a competitor from the market or wider town area who is looking to grow their existing presence.
The new owner could implement various methods to achieve further growth of the café. For example, the business would likely benefit from expanding its delivery service as this option has proven increasingly popular throughout the pandemic. This could be done by hiring an in-house driver or by partnering with a third-party host, such as UberEats, Deliveroo, or Just Eat. The buyer could also host events at the café to attract extra visitors, or consider offering staff/retailer discounts to other stall holders in the market. Curating an advertising campaign may be effective in spreading brand awareness and consequent customer levels.
