Hilton Smythe welcomes to the market La Dolce Vita Restaurant. The business was originally established in this location in 1977. Our client then took over the business in 2001. The owner is looking to sell the business due to health reasons.
This is a popular restaurant with a classic Italian theme. Our client has excelled in building this restaurant up to a high standard. Along with high quality food and a well-presented property, the business has built up an excellent reputation.
The business is currently generating an advised turnover of around £80,000 per annum, with a gross profit of 70%. This is a healthy turnover that we feel could be increased. The restaurant is currently closed on Mondays and Sundays, opening these days would allow for maximum custom each week. A lunch time delivery service to the local area could also be a great asset to the business.
La Dolce Vita has a food hygiene rating of 5, this is a recognised rating for high quality.
The restaurant has a fantastic online presence. TripAdvisor shows several excellent reviews and the business Facebook page has over 700 followers. The page is regularly updated with special offers and promotions. Social media is a great way of attracting new customers.
Included in the sale is the business website (). This is a great website that looks presentable. Bookings can be taken through the site.
This is a fantastic opportunity that is not to be missed. Hilton Smythe highly advise early viewing to take in the full potential of the trade.
