Hilton Smythe are delighted to present to the market Bluemoon Baguettes, a well-respected sandwich takeaway and cafe business established by our client in 2012 who is now selling the business due to her wish to retire.
The business focuses on providing both freshly made sandwiches, hot pasties, and daily specials to either eat in or takeaway, the menu includes -
- Fresh baguettes baked on site with a choice of vegetarian fillings, seafood fillings, meat fillings and chicken fillings.
- Traditional breakfasts, jacket potatoes and salads.
- Hot sausage rolls, meat, cheese or curry slices.
- Desserts, fruit salads, snacks and cold drinks.
- Curry’s, samosas, meal deals and daily specials.
- Group palettes and outside catering options.
- Fresh bean to cup coffees and teas.
The business is extremely popular with local businesspeople, tradesman, schoolteachers, residents and students.
Our client advises us there’s a peak early morning with local commuters working in central London and then at lunchtime (11.30-1) with residents, teachers and office workers.
Majority of the trade is derived from walk in trade however our client also uses UberEATS and Deliveroo for delivery customers. Our client informs us previously her husband managed 3 x food vans from the business which serviced the local offices, any new owner would benefit from adding this back to the business and could easily add a further 40% to the current weekly sales levels.
Any new owner would benefit from extending the current opening hours as well as opening the business at the weekends. Adding a new website, social media presence would help promote the business to new customers as well increase the outside catering side of the business.
The business benefits from low rent and 0 business rates.
Due to the low price sought, the long lease and location we strongly recommend early viewing to avoid disappointment.Location
