Hilton Smythe is proud to present to the market Bon Appetit. Bon Appetit is well known in the village and has repeat trade from locals and tourists on a daily base. The business has a very loyal customer base. The café was established over 12 years ago and our client has owned it for the last 5years but as now reluctantly decided to sell due to ill health. The business is currently generating a turnover of £21,000 per annum although is a very healthy turnover we feel as the business could improve on this by possibly opening on a Sunday or possibly creating a website. The café is a much loved and is very much the hub of the community and is very well known for the themed nights that they host and the café is open later on these nights to host other themed occasions like private parties that include baby showers, birthdays and physic nights. The café currently does not have an alcohol licence but this is something the new owner wishes to pursue but currently offers a corkage service. The café has 23 covers and is a very colourful and pretty premise, Bon Apetit is completed with its own Facebook page which currently has 1,368 likes and this proves how popular Bon Appetit is, our client posts on the social media site daily sharing new additions to the menu, pictures of delicious newly baked cakes and daily meal deals. This is also where customers share reviews about the business and currently the café has a 3 star rating. We advise that an early viewing for the business for an interested parties is highly recommended.
