Hilton Smythe welcomes to the market Back 2 R Roots. The café was established by our clients in 2016. The owners are now looking to sell the business, due to the desire to focus on other business interests. The café has proven to be very popular in this location, receiving a generous amount of repeat loyal trade from the locals. The business runs as a café opening for breakfasts and lunches. The café offers a great variety of fayre, this includes hot and cold snacks, drinks and afternoon teas. As well as regular café dining our client also offer an outside catering service for corporate buffets, meetings, training sessions, opening events, parties and more. Cooking classes are also available for children, a popular service with the locals. Back 2 R Roots generated an advised turnover of £70,000 as of the 2016 accounts. This is a healthy turnover, with scope to further increase this figure. The purchaser should look to extend opening hours into the evenings, applying for an alcohol licence could compliment this well. A delivery service via JustEat and Hungryhouse could also allow for more trade each week. The business already has a Facebook page, this is regularly updated with news, events and menu changes. The page has over 300 followers a great way of advertising the business. We feel a website would further benefit this. This is a fantastic opportunity that would be ideal for husband and wife team or partnership. All fixtures, fittings and kitchen equipment are virtually brand new making this an ideal turnkey business ready to start trading immediately. The current owners are also happy to offer a handover period to ensure the continued success of the café. Hilton Smythe highly advise early viewing to take in the full potential of the trade.
