Hilton Smythe is delighted to welcome to the market this well-established and very popular café business in Sheffield, South Yorkshire. The business was established by our client three years ago and is only now being offered to the market due to our client`s personal reasons. The business operates 7 days per week and generates a turnover in the region of £73,000 per annum, with a gross profit of approximately 67%.

The turnover is generated from the sale of high quality homemade fayre including full English breakfasts, hot and cold sandwiches, freshly prepared hot meals, jacket potatoes, toasted sandwiches and Panini`s, as well as a selection of hot and cold beverages. There is a kitchen and preparation area to the rear with a chilled serve-over counter. The café is well appointed with tables and chairs for up to 24 internal covers and 2 external covers.

The business has built up an enviable reputation within the area for the high quality and freshness of the food available, as well as the friendly service, which has resulted in a very loyal client base with a vast amount of repeat trade and word of mouth referrals. We feel there is scope to increase the turnover by extending the opening hours, as well as offering a lunchtime delivery service to local businesses. This is an excellent opportunity for a new owner to take this already thriving business to the next level; therefore early viewing must come highly recommended.

Rent: £700 per calendar month.
