Well-Equipped & Ambient Coffee Shop in Derbyshire
- Excellent reputation and loyal customer base
- Well-equipped premises
- Equipment included
- Friendly, professional team
- Wide variety of products and services
- Strong supplier relationships
This is a unique opportunity to acquire a well-equipped coffee shop, which has a brilliant ambience and has a prominent location in Ripley, Derbyshire. The business was first established in 2010 and has grown significantly since its creation, whilst also gaining a loyal customer base and an excellent reputation in the local area.
They serve a wide variety of delicious, homemade food and refreshing beverages at reasonable prices, including breakfast options, paninis, sandwiches, jacket potatoes, wraps, omelettes, sweet treats, Italian coffees, and much more. The company opens six days a week, can cover up to 40 customers, and has a brilliant 5-star hygiene rating.
The business has excellent relationships in place with the suppliers of their quality ingredients and foods, which could normally be hard to attain for a new business. The friendly, professional team is currently comprised of 5 part-time employees, who all prioritise providing excellent customer service and have an in-depth knowledge of the company.
The company’s brilliant reputation is further enforced by the many highly positive reviews, which the café has amassed across TripAdvisor, Facebook, Google, and restaurantguru.com. This would be the ideal opportunity, for an owner-operator, with previous sector experience.
The premises have a prominent location in Ripley and benefit from nearby car parking and excellent transport links. Most importantly, the position has high footfall, so there will be plenty of passing trade for the new owner.
The lock-up premises are attractively decorated and have a relaxing ambience. There is also a raised balcony facility, a well-equipped kitchen, and three cloakrooms.
All equipment will be included in the business sale, which means the new owner will be able to get to work straight away.
The current owners are happy to provide a time-limited handover period, in order to ensure a smooth and efficient transition.
This would be the ideal opportunity for an owner-operator, who ideally has previous sector experience. Someone who can keep a close eye on the business and spot brilliant opportunities would be perfect.
There is huge potential for growth with this business, as there is a massive opportunity to open the café for evening trade. There is even scope for the business to be a wine and tapas bar. Furthermore, an owner-operator will enable staff costs to be reduced.
The business already has a website and a Facebook page with 150 followers. It would be a great idea if the new owner continued to utilise and optimise these platforms, along with creating some additional social media channels.
