Hilton Smythe welcomes to the market Servini's Cafe Restaurant. This is a family run café restaurant that was originally established in 1933. The business was then passed down to our client by a family member in 1984. Our client now looks to sell the business, due to the desire to take a well-deserved retirement.
The business runs as a café and restaurant offering a variety of high quality fayre. Foods include salad boxes, ice cream cones and tubs, beef chicken and veggie burgers, children's box meals, hot meals and specials, jacket potatoes, sandwiches and baguettes, breakfasts and lunches as well as a range of hot and cold drinks, such as frappachinos and ice blended fruit smoothies. Other home made products include cakes, pastries, breads and rolls.
Servini's Cafe Restaurant generated an advised turnover of around £168,000 as of the 2016 accounts, with a gross profit of 71%. This is a healthy turnover, with scope to increase this figure. The business is set over four floors, two of the floors could be utilised further to take full advantage of this substantial sized property. On the first floor is a large space, this has potential as a function room and for private parties. To compliment this outside catering should be considered by the purchaser.
The second floor is currently unused but would be ideal as an owner's or manager's accommodation. This flat has internal access only.
Taking full advantage of free social media sites such as Facebook and Twitter. Social media is a great way of advertising and marketing a business. A website would also compliment the business.
This is a fantastic opportunity that would be ideal for a husband and wife team or partnership. The business is well-established and boasts an enviable reputation. Hilton Smythe highly advise early viewing to take in the full potential of the trade.
