Hilton Smythe welcomes to the market No 1 Diner. Occupying a prominent and monopoly trading position within this large industrial area. This family run café has seen year on year growth since opening in 1996 with our client taking over the helm in 2002.
The café offers hot and cold food to either eat in or take away such as home-made curries, pies, jacket potatoes and daily specials. The café reports a good turnover of £78,000 with a gross profit at 65% for this financial year.
