Property description

Business
Hilton Smythe welcomes to the market Planet Cafe Porty Ltd. This popular children’s soft play centre and busy cafe was established by our client in 2013 and has seen year on year growth, being very well supported by local residents.

The soft play centre caters for younger children in a safe friendly environment. Whilst adults can relax in the 30 cover stylish and modern cafe, providing fresh coffees, hot and cold food and homemade soups and tempting cakes.

The business reports a turnover at £65,490 for this financial year with gross profit at 72%, with the business genuinely coming to the market due to our client’s family commitments. The business benefits from 100% rate relief, allowing for lower costs.

Planet Cafe is a very popular venue for children’s parties, themed and seasonal events with a gallery of pictures displayed on the businesses Facebook page with nearly 1700 likes and regular updates. Although, we believe a new owner may wish to embark on a modest marketing campaign to further promote the parties. Discounts are available via the widely known platform Groupon.

We are advised that the sale includes a database of 800 names, also included is all promotional material, such as logos and branding. Our client is willing to offer a handover period, to allow for a smooth transition period. This business is in a walk-in trading position, this business opportunity is not to be missed.
