Hilton Smythe would like to welcome to the market this popular coffee and bistro business in Blackwood, Gwent. The business was established by our clients` in 2010 and is only now being placed onto the market due to our clients` wish to take a well-earned retirement. The business generates a turnover of approximately £64,500 per annum, with a gross profit of 69%. Coffee Continental (Blackwood) Ltd is very popular and has been given the reputation as the best place in town for coffee. The café has a comfortable and relaxing environment with a Mediterranean appearance, a real escape from home. Inside the café features modern tables and chairs as well as relaxing chairs and has excellent decoration throughout, there is external seating available set with a colourful perimeter of potted plants.

The café is licensed to sell alcohol. The café has a very impressive 5* hygiene rating. We feel the turnover could be increased by branching out into the outside catering market usually proven to be very lucrative. Later opening hours and opening on Sundays and public holidays would be very beneficial. Early viewing of this 'turn the key' walk in trading opportunity comes highly recommended.
