Hilton Smythe is delighted to welcome to the market this well-established cafe and outside catering business, ideally located within Sheffield, South Yorkshire.
The business was originally established by our client in 2012 and is only now being offered to the market due to our client’s desire for retirement. The business currently operates 6 days per week and generates a turnover in the region of £70,000 per annum, with a good gross profit.
Our client offers a wide variety of fayre including light bites, a selection of homemade savouries, freshly made sandwiches with a variety of fillings and home-made desserts, to name a few, as well a selection of hot and cold beverages. The business also provides outside catering and delivers to workplaces, customers’ homes and even wedding venues.
The premises boasts a large 111 square metres and offers 24 covers on two floors, which includes some relaxing sofas, as well as a commercial kitchen to the rear of the premises.
The business has built up an enviable reputation within the area for the high quality of the food 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 to increase the turnover by extending the opening hours. A new owner could also embark on a modest marketing campaign to promote the food and service offered. The business already has a very informative website in place to advertise the business at .
This is an excellent opportunity for a new owner, perhaps a husband and wife team or partnership, to take this already thriving business to the next level; therefore early viewing must come highly recommended to avoid disappointment.
