Hilton Smythe welcomes to the market Stefano's Ltd. This authentic Italian restaurant and takeaway is a popular eatery within the town and is very well supported by the local community.
This family friendly restaurant was originally founded by our clients in 2004 and offers a range of traditional freshly prepared dishes cooked to order. The restaurant is welcoming and offers 34 covers with views through to the open plan kitchen area with a good level of catering equipment.
According to the 2016 accounts the business reports a generous turnover in the region of 308,000 with a gross profit at circa 67%.
Although clearly successful, we believe the business has huge potential for further growth. On the first floor is a large stock room which could be used as additional seating should the new owner want to expand the capacity. Certainly, we believe a new owner should invest in a website, the business already has a presence on social media, but could be utilised further to promote the business to new custom.
Opening lunch times could also prove beneficial and perhaps offering a delivery service in the area would further boost trade.
Early viewing of this reputable restaurant is highly recommended, with the business genuinely coming to the market as our clients look towards a well-deserved retirement.
