There has been a café type business on these premises for at least twenty years and the current owner has run it successfully for the last 3 years. Our client has seen the turnover and profits increase dramatically under her ownership particularly in the last year since signing up to JustEat.
The business is now being sold reluctantly only so the owner can concentrate on her other Catering business. Whilst the business continues to grow month on month she feels that she doesn't have the time to commit to it further and is keen for it to go to an ambitious new owner who can take it to the next level.
Breakfast Box sells freshly made food using local ingredients where possible including a full breakfast menu and breakfasts in a box, burgers, Hot pork and stuffing, omelettes, jacket potatoes with hot and cold fillings, hot and cold sandwiches, salad boxes and children's meals.
The business enjoys good visibility and reviews online and has a 4 star hygiene rating with many regular customers.
The business employs a full time driver to cope with the masses of deliveries undertaken by the very busy sandwich round and JustEat delivery service which is a key and lucrative part of the business.
