Description

Hilton Smythe is delighted to welcome to the market Eats & Treats. The cafe was originally established 9 years ago and was taken over by our client a year later. The owner is now looking to sell the business due to the desire to take a well-deserved retirement. The business runs as a traditional café offering a range of hot and cold foods to eat-in or take away. The premise boasts a large seating area that is well laid out and spacious. The business offers breakfasts, jacket potatoes, sandwiches, soups, salads and much more. The café currently generates an advised turnover of around £47,800 per annum with a great gross profit of 67%, according to the 2015 accounts. This is a generous turnover, however we feel this could be increased in several ways. The new owner could look to increase opening hours. Extending hours into the evenings and opening Sundays would be a great way to boost potential trade. The purchaser could also look to obtain an alcohol licence this will increase stock available. The café is currently run at a steady pace, there is potential to reduce staffing costs with a hard working new owner; who is looking to work hands on at the business. This is a fantastic café that has been run to a high standard. We advise this is a perfect first time purchase, with the low running costs and healthy turnover. Hilton Smythe promote early viewings to appreciate the full potential of the business.
