Hilton Smythe is delighted to welcome to the market Baliff Bridge Café. The business was originally established in 2000 by our client. The owner is now looking to sell the business due to the desire to take an early retirement. The café specialises in breakfasts, jacket potatoes and sandwiches. All food on offer is freshly cooked to order. The business is well known for its friendly staff, great food and cleanliness. This is a great café that receives a generous amount of repeat trade. The business is situated on a main road that receives a heavy amount of footfall. The café generates most business from passing trade. There is off street parking outside the store, making it easy for customers to call in. The current turnover for the business is an advised £70,200 per annum with a gross profit of around 59%. We feel this could be increased by extending opening hours. There is also the option to introduce deliveries to local business. In the area are many industrial estates and offices, making this a great successful arm for the business. There is another way in which the purchaser could boost turnover by extending the café. The basement that is in the premise would be perfect for further seating if the new owner was to refurbish. This is a perfect turn key opportunity for any purchaser looking for this type of business. Hilton Smythe highly advise early viewing to avoid disappointment.
