Hilton Smythe welcomes to the market Crave Coffee and Catering. Established by our client in 2015 the business has quickly established a loyal client base and is very well supported by the local community.

The business offers a busy takeaway service with an excellent reputation for the quality of fayre, with a diverse and freshly prepared daily menu including artisan sandwiches, breakfasts, homemade soups, light snacks, jacket potatoes and delicious desserts served alongside a range of premium coffees. The business offers something that little bit special and different. The business reports this financial year’s turnover at £48,000.

The café area caters for around 6 covers and is immaculately presented and upstairs potential for 20+ covers. The cafe is proud to display a 5 star hygiene rating.

Crave Coffee and Catering are also specialists in outside catering with a good choice of menus for both business customers and private parties to suit all budgets. With bespoke packages available to suit clients individual requirements. The business has a large fully fitted commercial kitchen with ample work surfaces for the catering which can easily afford an increase in orders.

The business has an informative website giving further details on the menu options and has a healthy presence on social media websites Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. We believe a new owner would benefit from a modest marketing campaign to further promote the business to new customers.
