This business does not have to be kept as a café. Hilton Smythe are delighted to welcome to the market Bon Appetit. The business was established in the 1980’s, our client has run the business since 2001. They are now looking to sell the business due to semi-retirement. The business is a café with a separate lower ground catering kitchen. They bake their own bread, pies and cakes for the café and catering side of the business. The café sells a vast range of hot and cold food such as breakfasts, sandwiches with salad, main meals like Chicken curry, Liver bacon and onions, Bangers and mash or for a lighter choice a salad or jacket potatoes with various toppings. The catering service currently caters for private parties, wakes, weddings and other celebrations. To boost revenue the catering side could delivery to the local area. The business also benefits from additional income from the rental of two flats on the site with a total amount of £770 per month, one of the flats is currently not being rented out and could be used as owner’s accommodation. This business has much potential, as our client is currently running the business at their own pace. The business has an excellent reputation in the area, and is well known for its great food. The business comes fully equipped, and with a turnover of £62,000 per annum and a gross profit of 65%. I advise early viewing to avoid disappointment.
