Established in 2010, the business prospers from the minimal competition in the area. The one-stop coffee shop provides one of the only venues for a sit-down and a warm bite to eat. The café can boast a fantastic reputation due to their loyal customer base and exceptionally positive reviews left online. With high turnover and vast scope for further growth, this is a small business venture hard to pass by.
The business for sale is on leasehold.
The business operates from a glass-fronted, corner plot with outdoor seating. The premises has been renovated to a high standard throughout.
There is a large open plan seating area with a counter to the rear for staff to take orders and manage transactions, with the menu listed above. Beyond there is a small kitchen for food preparation. The menu features a highly popular all-day breakfast, and other quintessentially British cuisine is served between 8am-5pm, Monday to Sunday. There are approximately 25 covers on the premises and the business can boast a 5-Star hygiene rating. With a particular focus towards baked and homemade goods, customers can enjoy their food in the property or on a takeout basis.
All fixtures and fittings are included in the sale, including the barista-style coffee machine. Fantastic reviews are left online via TripAdvisor, Facebook and Google Reviews, praising the staff, the premises and the high standard of food served.
For further growth, the new owner could open for longer hours. There is vast scope to open the property into a bistro in the evenings, serving a more elegant dining experience. The new owner could also consider implementing a delivery service, which would be popular with their loyal clientele.
The ideal buyer would be an individual looking for their first catering business. This opportunity would suit someone enthusiastic about home cooking, business-minded and willing to invest their efforts into taking the café to the next level.
The current owners are willing to stay on for a transitional period to help the new owner familiarise with the business operations.
