Hilton Smythe are delighted to offer to the market Blueberries Cafe, an extremely well established café. The café has been run by our client for the last 8 years. The business is now being offered to the market as our client is wishing to spend more time with family.

The business is situated within a large commercial premises providing seating area with 16 covers and space for more if required, a staff toilet and commercial kitchen.

The café currently offers a menu of English breakfast, sandwiches, soups, a children’s meals and traditional meals. The café also has a traditional chip shop side which hasn’t been pushed by the current owner, therefore there is ample scope to offer later opening and offer traditional chip shop products.

Blueberries café has excellent reviews on google reviews with customers stating, ‘Good quick service and top quality food with great staff’ and ‘The best place to get breakfast - and they deliver! Amazing staff, always lovely, great food. We order here regularly, and they take care of frequent customers well.’ The business currently holds a 4 star hygiene rating.

The business is currently owner ran with help from 6 part time staff members. At present our client doesn’t advertise, the custom comes from passing shoppers, regular customers and word of mouth recommendations.

There is plenty of scope to improve turnover such as pushing the outside catering side, using social media, advertising, and leaflet dropping. Also, to increase the custom if desired there are options to utilize marketing websites such as Just Eat and Hungry House.

We feel this business would suit a partnership management, with the ample scope to push the already thriving business to the next level.
