Hilton Smythe welcomes to the market Calder Café. The café was originally established 10 years ago and has been run by our client over the past two years. The owner is now looking to sell the business, due to the desire to focus on other interests.

The business runs as a workman’s café, operating on a busy main road, on the outskirts of Halifax. They offer homemade hot and cold breakfasts and lunches. The café offers eat in or takeaway food, our client also provides deliveries to local factories; this is great for repeat loyal trade.

The café is currently generating an advised turnover of around £74,000 per annum, with a gross profit of 70%. This is a healthy turnover that could be increased. The business benefits from a large commercial kitchen, this would be perfect for if the purchaser wanted to introduce an outside catering service.

The business has an exceptional reputation with its regulars and thrives off word of mouth recommendations. The new owners could look to advertise on social media to try and increase trade. More signage on the premise could also attract more custom from passing trade.

The café is in an excellent location benefiting from a large amount of footfall and passing trade. This is a fantastic opportunity with huge scope that is not to be missed. Hilton Smythe highly advise early viewing to take in the full potential of the trade.



We are advised the business is being sold as a Leasehold opportunity.
