Hilton Smythe is delighted to introduce to the market Monks Corner. This long established business has an enviable reputation for service, quality and value for money. Our clients a successful husband and wife team have continued to build the business since inception in 2002, and only now does the business come to the market as they look towards a well-deserved retirement.
Revenue is derived from the sale of breakfasts, a good range of hot and cold sandwiches freshly made to order, pasties and pies, hot snacks, teas and coffees, also the sale of newspapers, soft drinks and cigarettes. The business generates a turnover in the region of £78,000 per annum. Trading from a prime main road location and with very little competition in the area, the business sees high levels of repeat trade from both local residents and businesses.
The business is immaculately presented and fastidiously maintained with the addition of a parcel collection facility. Monks Corner boasts a 5 star food and hygiene rating. Our client advises that there has been a lot of interest shown for a delivery service in the vicinity, an aspect of the business a new owner may wish to explore further to develop the business. In addition there is potential to expand the outside catering part of the business, particularly the corporate side and introduce a sandwich delivery round to local businesses.
We certainly feel the new owners would benefit from the introduction of a website and having a presence on social media platforms. With the facility of on-line ordering and delivery could prove profitable.
Early viewing of this profitable concern with potential for growth is highly recommended.
