Ref 7951 – Leasehold Sandwich Bar & Corporate Catering Business
Blacks Brokers are pleased to bring to the market this leasehold sandwich bar & corporate catering business located in Guildford, Surrey.
Lunches Direct was established by our client in this bustling industrial area of Guildford in 2001. The business offers a range of freshly prepared takeaway breakfasts and lunches as well as offering a full corporate catering service. 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 close to a range of large businesses. Our client has ensured the business has an excellent reputation and superb reviews are noted on Google and Facebook. Lunches Direct has a basic website in place and good social media following.
Lunches Direct occupies a prominent trading position within a busy industrial estate. The area is densely populated commercially with neighbouring businesses including independent retailers and large multiples including many car dealerships. The area is well linked by the A3 with very strong public transport links and parking is available immediately outside the unit.
The business is ideally suited to a hands-on owner-operator but sadly due to our client’s ill health, 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 business operates with two members of staff in employment supporting our client working on a full time basis.
Lunches Direct has traded solidly since opening and our client has established a strong repeat customer base. Accounts for year ending 31st December 2021 show annual turnover of £71,760and gross profit of £27,444. It should be noted that these figures were affected by Covid-19 and lockdown measures. Full financial information is available upon request.
This long established and well known business occupies an enviable trading position in a sought after area of Guildford. Our client has secured a strong customer base and exceptional reputation. There is plenty of scope to develop the business further with the introduction of new menu choices and longer opening hours. A new owner may also look to introduce a strong marketing drive with use of social media and other online resources. This proposition would ideally suit an owner operating team who could push the business forward and build upon the solid and impressive trading foundations. Early viewings are strongly advised. Business: £59,950.
