Hilton Smythe is delighted to welcome to the market this well established sandwich shop and coffee shop. This old established business has been in our clients ownership for just four months, only now is the business offered to the market due to our client's unfortunate ill health. The business is open five and a half days per week and run at a pace to suit our client, and generates a turnover in the region of £23,400.
Our client offers full breakfasts, hot and cold sandwiches, baguettes, Panini's, baked potatoes with various fillings, hot and cold drinks and home baked cakes. We feel the turnover could be increased by extending the opening hours and perhaps opening on Sundays. There is also scope to introduce a delivery service to local businesses and an advertising campaign to advertise the business. The business would also benefit from a website to promote the business and the services and food offered. A new owner could also establish an outside catering service.
The property boasts a sales area and a well-equipped commercial kitchen. Our client has just spent £3,000 on part rewiring and repair of equipment. This is an excellent opportunity for a new owner to take this business forward; therefore early viewing must come highly recommended.
