Hilton Smythe is delighted to welcome to the market this popular and busy tapas tavern, which is ideally located within Hockley, Nottingham.
The business was established by our client in 2014 and is only now being offered to the market, due to our client’s other business interests. The business operates 5 days per week and generates a turnover in the region of £144,000 per annum, The business has a projected turnover of £158,000 for the next financial year..
Our client offers an eclectic range of freshly cooked, traditional, Spanish tapas, as well as their own creations, from travels around Europe and the Mediterranean. The property boasts approximately 130 sq. Metres of floor space, with the main restaurant/bar area with 42 covers and a full commercial kitchen. The premises are very well maintained and decorated to a high standard.
The business has built up an excellent reputation within the area for the very high quality of the food and service offered, which has resulted in a very loyal client base, with a high volume of repeat trade and word of mouth recommendations.
We feel there is scope to increase the turnover by extending the opening hours, perhaps by opening on Sundays and Mondays. A new owner could also embark on modest marketing campaign to highlight the excellent fayre and service offered. The business already has a very informative website in place to promote the business at , which incorporates online booking facilities.
This is an excellent opportunity for a new owner, perhaps a husband and wife team or partnership, to take this already thriving business to the next level; therefore, early viewing must come highly recommended to avoid disappointment.
