Property description

Hilton Smythe welcomes to the market Star Cafe & Sandwich Bar. This family run cafe was established in 2010. Our client recently took over the cafe and is now looking to sell, due to family ill health and other focuses.

The cafe is long established, boasting an excellent reputation and repeat loyal custom. The business runs as a cafe, sandwich bar and outside catering service. The cafe offers a vast range of fayre. The menu includes, hot and cold breakfasts, sandwiches, paninis, omelettes, burgers, salads as well as regular daily specials and desserts.

The business generated a turnover in the region of £62,400 as of the 2016 accounts, with a gross profit of 70%. The purchaser could look to expand opening hours. Opening Sundays and opening later could maximise the amount of custom each week.

Since taking over the cafe our clients have introduced an outside catering service and deliveries. These are popular services with the locals. With further marketing and advertising the business could see a generous increase in custom for these services.

The cafe would be a perfect opportunity for a husband and wife team or partnership. The business is well-established and comes fully equipped with a great reputation. This is a fantastic opportunity that is not to be missed. Hilton Smythe highly advise early viewing to take in the full potential of the trade.
