Hilton Smythe are delighted to offer to the market Elaine's Coffee Shop Ltd established by our client in 2012 and offered to market due to retirement.
This is a dual run business with 35% trade coming from the coffee shop and 65% from the delivery of meats and cheeses within the local area.
The cafe offers a fresh selection of breakfast baps, sandwiches, filled rolls, salad bowls, jacket potatoes, cream teas, cakes, desserts, freshly made bean to cup coffee, 'flora' teas and cold drinks including an open chiller selling food to takeaway as well pre-packed bacon, cooked meats and cheeses.
The delivery part of the business is predominantly run by our client's husband who has a highly successful delivery round within a 30-mile radius of the business. They supply bacon from Holland, cooked ham from the north and cheeses which are delivered in pallets and divided into small packs. Customers range from local spa shops, holiday home parks, garden centres, pubs and restaurants. Offered products in a sale or return basis.
The businesses are now combined on the business accounts and due to the large available space behind the cafe work well as a joint husband and wife operation.
It would be possible to separate the delivery business however; our clients want to sell it as an entire going concern.
A new buyer may want to extend the cafe into the rear space, add outside catering, homemade cake baking or local hot and cold food deliveries.
