Hilton Smythe is delighted to offer to the market this sandwich bar and cafe business in Wigston, Leicestershire. The business was established in the 1990's and has been in our clients' careful ownership since 2007. Only now is the business being offered to the market due to our clients other business interests. The business is open six days per week and generates a healthy turnover and an excellent gross profit. Our clients offer high quality and freshly made sandwiches and an extensive range of hot and cold meals including breakfasts.
The business has a 5* hygiene rating and benefits from a very loyal customer base with a high volume of repeat trade. The premises boast a spacious serving area with tables and chairs for up to 14 covers internally and 4 covers externally, as well as a well-equipped commercial kitchen. We feel there is scope to increase the turnover by offering outside catering services and by extending the opening hours, perhaps opening on Sundays.
A new owner could also extend the range of food offered and perhaps offer a takeaway food in the evening, including pizzas, kebabs etc. This is an excellent opportunity for a new owner to take this already thriving business to the next level; therefore early viewing must come highly recommended.
