Hilton Smythe is delighted to welcome to the market this well-established and popular sandwich bar business in Wilsden, near Bradford, West Yorkshire.
The old established business has been in our client’s careful ownership for since April 2015. Only now is the business being offered to the market due to our clients’ other business opportunity. The shop operates 5 days per week and generates a turnover in the region of £75,000 per annum, with a good gross profit.
Our client offers a variety of fayre including hot & cold sandwiches with various fillings, breakfast in a box, pasties, pies, confectionery, soups and chilli to name a few, as well as a selection of hot & cold beverages. Our client also offers outside catering facilities for both corporate and private functions and already supplies the local conservative club when they have parties and the local village hall for their events. The property has been very well maintained and boasts a spacious sales and display area to the front and a galley kitchen to the rear.
The business has built up an excellent reputation within the area for the high quality of the goods and services 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 for a new owner to increase the turnover by extending the opening hours, perhaps by offering early breakfasts or by taking advantage of the early evening trade. A new owner could also introduce a delivery service to the businesses within the local area.
This is an excellent opportunity for a new owner, perhaps a husband and wife team, to take this already thriving business to the next level; therefore early viewing must come highly recommended to avoid disappointment.
