Hilton Smythe is delighted to introduce to the market The Courtyard Cafe. The Cafe was originally established in the 1990's. In 2014 our client took over the business and is now looking to sell due to the desire to concentrate on a new business venture.
We are advised that the business is generating a turnover of £58,000 per annum, with a gross profit of 65%. This could be greatly increased by opening in the evenings and on Sundays.
The Cafe has a fantastic, well balanced menu that changes seasonally. There is also a lunch special offer that has been proven very popular (a main course and a drink for only £7.95). Everything on the menu is homemade starting from a variety of breakfasts, sandwiches, salads, soups and main courses as well as delicious puddings. Afternoon Tea is exceptionally popular with the locals.
The menus as well as a photo gallery of dishes and much more information about the cafe, can be found on the well laid out website www.thecourtyardcafewindsor.com.
The Cafe has been quite engaged in social media with many followers on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. Also, there are some amazing reviews on Trip Advisor which is greatly followed and supported by many visitors.
The business offers an outside catering service which contributes substantionally to the cafe's turnover.
This is an excellent opportunity for a new owner, perhaps a husband and wife team, to take this already thriving, popular and very busy business to the next level; therefore a viewing must come highly recommended. We are also advised the current owner will be happy to offer a hand over period, to help the buyer start up.
