Hilton Smythe welcomes to the market Maggies Kitchen. The café was established in this location by our client in 2002. The owner is looking to sell the business, due to ill health.
The business runs as a busy industrial estate café in a prominent trading location. The business serves an excellent varied menu, fayre includes breakfasts, lunches, hot and cold snacks, sandwiches, baguettes, daily specials as well as a variety of hot and cold drinks.
Maggies Kitchen benefits from a generous amount of repeat loyal trade. We are advised every Sunday the business serves around 60 roast dinners. Our client also offers a delivery service to the local businesses.
The business generated a turnover in the region of £61,000 as of the 2016 accounts, with a gross profit of 68%. This is a healthy turnover; however, we feel there is huge scope to further increase this figure.
Our client has run the business at a steady pace, and so with a hard-working hands on purchaser who would be willing to extend opening hours, could see this already well-established café thrive. There is little competition locally and targeting local businesses should be a main focus of the buyer. Expanding deliveries could be highly beneficial to the café. By introducing a social media page the owner could advertise the delivery service and food available. Social media is a great cost effective way to advertise a business.
This is a fantastic opportunity that is not to be missed. The café would be an ideal turn key purchase for a husband and wife team or partnership. The café comes fully equipped and our client would be willing to offer a hand over period, to allow for a smooth transaction. Hilton Smythe highly advise early viewing to take in the full potential of the trade.
