Hilton Smythe welcomes to the market Pino Pizza & Grill a multi-faceted business that has further room for development. During the morning it is the coffee shop that serves both platforms. Our client has recently upgraded the coffee machine and now sells top quality coffee which rivals the local chain coffee house, our client informs us that over recent months the coffee has increased revenue dramatically, however, this side of the business could be extended further by introducing confectionery and pastries etc. To complement the coffee. There is also a reception area that could be utilised during the day and with a further staff member in this time the business could also sell paninis and sandwiches etc.
The business then closes at 12 and re opens in the evening as a pizza delivery/takeaway, which also sells, kebabs, wraps burgers etc. The delivery extends to a 6/7 mile radius, covering many local villages. Further promotion of the delivery business would be advisable to increase turnover.
We have been informed by our client that the premises are rates exempt and the rent is just £16,157 per annum, this includes the rent for the flat above the shop, which due to its proximity to Stansted airport can be rented out. Currently our client lives in the flat and sublets a room with shared access to the bathroom and kitchen at £600 per month. Previous to our client taking over, the room where our client stays were let at £700 per month, bringing in £1300 per month in total, therefore, pay all but £557 of the rent.
Our client will also include the £6,000 rent deposit in the price of the business.
The business is being sold with the website and has 235 reviewers giving 5/6 reviews on Just Eat, 5* reviews on the businesses own Facebook page and 4/5* reviews on TripAdvisor
