Hilton Smythe welcomes to the market The Little Green Olive. This immaculately presented cafe and coffee shop was originally founded by our client in 2011 and since then has established a fantastic reputation with a regular repeat client base and ample passing trade due to its prime location.
Our client has refurbished and decorated the café, which now a delightful resting place, with a vivacious colour scheme and modern furnishings for 30 covers, and the added bonus of an outdoor decked seating area for a further 9 covers.
The Little Green Olive provides a varied menu including a wide selection of hot and cold beverages, breakfasts, jacket potatoes, sandwiches, paninis, salad boxes and a great selection of homemade cakes. Additionally, a small amount of outside catering is provided for children's parties, an aspect of the business that can easily be built upon with an injection of marketing, indeed the business already has an excellent website www.littlegreenolive.co.uk.
We feel there is potential to increase turnover of this already profitable concern, perhaps by extending opening hours to take advantage of weekend and evening trade and currently the business is managed by paid staff, an ideal opportunity for an enthusiastic new owner to run and manage the business to help reduce the wages bill.
Naturally, we would highly recommend this superb walk in trading opportunity with the potential for further growth which genuinely comes to the market due to our clients other business interests.
