Busy Cafe/Takeaway Business in Drighlington For Sale

  • Reference: 2625
  • Location: Leeds, West Yorkshire
Hilton Smythe is delighted to welcome to the market this well-established and busy café and takeaway business in Drighlington, West Yorkshire.

The business was established by our client in 2013 and is only now being offered to the market due to our client's family commitments. The business operates 7 days per week and generates a turnover in the region of £62,000 per annum, with a gross profit of approximately 60%

Our client offers a varied range of hot and cold food, which includes breakfasts, hot and cold sandwiches, salad boxes, jacket potatoes, Panini's, pies and pastries, as well as a wide selection of hot and cold beverages. The business boasts an impressive five stars from the local council health & hygiene inspectors.

Customers can eat-in or takeaway and the café area has tables and chairs for over 24 covers internally and a table with 4 covers externally. Our client also offers buffet style outside catering for businesses and parties.

The business has built up an enviable reputation within the area for the high quality of the goods and services offered, which has resulted in a very loyal client base, with a high volume of repeat trade and word of mouth recommendations.

We feel there is scope to increase the turnover by extending the opening hours and by developing the outside catering arm of the business. The business currently does very little advertising and would benefit from embarking on a modest marketing campaign and creation of a simple website. There is also scope to introduce a delivery service to businesses within the local area.

This is an excellent opportunity for a new owner to take this already busy café and takeaway business to the next level; therefore early viewing must come highly recommended to avoid disappointment.
