Hilton Smythe are delighted to present to the market Kafe No.6, a much loved community cafe and takeaway unit which benefits from new equipment throughout, new decor, signage and menu.
The business opened as a cafe over 5 years ago and our clients recently purchased just over a year ago, transforming the business to not only a cafe focused business but also an exciting Gelato business. Serving the highly renowned ‘Giovanni Gelato’ range of ice creams, our client has built up an excellent relationship with the supplier which will continue through him if any new buyer wishes to continue with this high quality range.
Our client attracts many local customers including teachers from the local schools, young families, students, grandparents, visitors to the nearby library and doctor’s surgery. There is a very large residential area behind the business which increases the number of families sitting down within the cafe at the weekends.
We are advised during the week 70% of sales are derived from takeaway and 30% from eat in customers. At the weekends, the business is split 50% from eat in and 50% from takeaway.
Following a transformation of the premises, our client then focused on introducing a freshly made menu focusing on good ingredients and quality. The menu includes:
Breakfasts, rolls, sandwiches and baguettes. (All made to order)
Toasties, paninis, burgers and salads
Indian favourites including samosas and deserts
Italian Gelato, cakes, muffins and desserts
Bean to cup coffees, teas, smoothies, milkshakes, chilled soft drinks and water
Any new buyer may look to increase the menu by adding pizzas and more hot food specials including introducing an early evening bistro menu.
Due to the size of the shop, any new owner may look to split the shop unit to allow for a second business type to run alongside the main cafe/Gelato business. There is also high demand in this area for gluten free products which could attract a new footfall into the cafe, being close to a popular school could also allow any alternative business such as pottery focused business attracting both parents and families.
Currently a daytime driven business, any new owner may look to open an evening bistro menu and apply for an alcohol and A3 licence.
