Hilton Smythe welcomes to the market the long-established café known as Grange Café on the Greenhill Mill industrial site in Batley. A café business has been on site for over 20 years and our client has owned it for the last 3 years. Our client is now reluctantly selling for family and health reasons.
The business caters for 14 covers inside with a sheltered external seating area.
The menu includes breakfasts, lunches, hot and cold sandwiches, paninis and wraps, specials, burgers, chips, pastries, porridge, jacket potatoes,d flatcakes, salads, crisps and sweets as well as a range of hot and cold drinks.
The business is situated in a large industrial area. 70% of its sales involve delivering to industrial and commercial businesses within a 5 mile radius with the remaining 30% being sit downs.
The business has a 5* food and hygiene rating.
The overheads and running costs are low.
The business is clean and tidy.
It is believed further growth can be achieved by increased drive and enthusiasm, advertising, longer hours, deliveries, outside catering and Sunday opening.
