Hilton Smythe is delighted to welcome to the market this popular cafe and sandwich bar business, which is ideally located within the town of Droylsden, Greater Manchester.
The business was established by our client in July 2016 and is only now being offered to the market, due to our client’s decision to attend university. The business currently operates 6 days per week and generates an approximate turnover of £1,000 per week, with a good gross profit.
Our client offers a wide variety of goods including full English breakfasts, hot & cold sandwiches, toasties, Ciabatta melts, jacket potatoes and chips, as well as a selection of hot and cold beverages. Our client also offers a delivery service within the area to homes and places of business. To the first floor is one bedroom accommodation with separate rear entrance, which could be used by a new owner or let out to generate further income. The property boasts 71 sq. Metres of floor space with 20 internal covers and 5 covers externally to the front of the property.
The business has built up an excellent reputation within the area for the very high quality of the food 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 and taking advantage of the early evening trade. A new owner could also embark on a modest marketing campaign to highlight to goods offered. The cafe already has a Facebook page but would benefit from a business website to advertise the fayre offered.
This is an excellent opportunity for a new owner, perhaps a husband and wife team or partnership, to take this already busy business to the next level; therefore, early discussions with Hilton Smythe must come highly recommended to avoid disappointment.
