Ref 7281 – Leasehold Licenced Café & Coffee Shop
Blacks Brokers are pleased to bring to the market this leasehold bakehouse/cafe located in Fareham, Hampshire.
CrumbleJack was established by our client in this affluent area of Fareham in 2017. The business offers a range of freshly prepared foods and bespoke coffees and breads which are baked in house. It has become very well known in this area and has a strong base of regular customers in place as well as benefitting from a huge amount of passing trade due to this excellent trading position. Our client has ensured the business has an excellent reputation and superb reviews are noted on Google, Facebook and Trip Advisor. CrumbleJack has a comprehensive website in place.
CrumbleJack occupies a main road trading position within a parade of shops and offices. The area is densely populated commercially with neighbouring businesses including independent retailers as well as large multiples such as Dominos and Aldi. Fareham Tran Station is also nearby. The area is well linked by the M27 with very strong public transport links and parking is available in the surrounding area.
The business is ideally suited to a hands-on owner-operator but due to our client’s other business interests being higher than anticipated, the business is offered for sale. This presents an excellent opportunity for a new owner-operator or team to take the business to the next level.
The building is available on a Full Repair and Insure lease (Fri lease). A new 15 year lease will begin when the business sale completes. This will run at a cost of £404 per week.
