For sale is this versatile catering premises, currently a dessert and ice cream parlour operating in the heart of the picturesque market town of Bedford.

Situated in a prime position within the busy Riverside Square, the premises is nestled amongst a hub of other eateries, shops and a cinema, therefore profiting from significant footfall and attracting an eclectic customer base.

Due to the current owners having a business in a different location but under the same name, the business name is not included in the sale which is a great opportunity for a new buyer to rebrand and continue as a dessert parlour or re-imagine the business entirely using the space/fixtures and fittings included in the sale. If a new buyer does wish to continue as a dessert parlour the current owner is willing to negotiate separately on the purchase of the equipment which is not currently for sale with the premises.

The vendor is open to offers for a quick sale, therefore making this business an ideal acquisition for a buyer who is looking to immediately jump in to running their own food business.

Customers enter through a glass door to the right of the parlour’s frontage into an L-shaped dining area. A mix of leather booths and tables line both sides, providing ample seating capacity. A wall-mounted TV sits on the longest side, whilst the inner section of the restaurant houses the order and payment counters, with glass displays of the delicious desserts. A door at the far end of the restaurant leads to the staff area and W/C facilities. The parlour is adorned with NYC-inspired street art, overhanging lamps, street and subway signs, and sports paraphernalia. A promo video and virtual tour are available upon request.

All fixtures and fittings are included in the sale price, whilst a second list of items is open for negotiation. Both lists are available upon request. Furthermore, a transitional period is available to ensure a seamless handover of business operations.

The ideal buyer for this business would be an individual who has significant experience in the catering industry and is now looking to run their own establishment.

There is a unique opportunity to continue as a dessert parlour and expand the offer to include burgers and other American-style, savoury items to the menu. This will likely increase the company’s turnover by widening the customer base to include those looking for main courses.
