Hilton Smythe welcomes to the market Mr. And Mrs. C`s. The business was established in 2015 and taken over by our client in 2017, though she has thoroughly enjoyed running the business, it is now time to move on to her next venture. The café has been a great success and in 2018 -19 generated a turnover of £138,886.
The business runs as a café in the city centre of Wakefield. There is an excellent menu available, this includes jacket potatoes, sandwiches, cakes, afternoon teas and a selection of vegan dishes, plus hot and cold beverages including a selection of alcoholic drinks.
There is potential to boost turnover if the purchaser looked to extend the seating area on the lower floor, there is also external covers at the front for 8 people. Mr. And Mrs. C`s has only been open for 3.5 years, with further advertising and marketing the business could see an increase in custom.
