Hilton Smythe is delighted to welcome to the market this well-established and very popular tapas bar, which is ideally located in Todmorden, West Yorkshire.
The business was originally established by our client in 2004 and only now is it being offered to the market due to our client's desire for early retirement. This affords an excellent opportunity to negotiate the terms of a brand new lease as our client owns the freehold. The business currently operates at a pace to suit our client opening just 4 evenings per week, generating a turnover in the region of £70,000 per annum, with a good gross profit.
Our client offers a wide variety of tapas, sharing platters, specials and Paella, to name a few, as well as a selection of hot, cold and alcoholic beverages, specialising in Spanish bottled beers. The premises boasts approximately 50 internal covers, as well as a further 20 external covers. The property is very well maintained, decorated to a very high standard and extremely well fitted out to suit the trade.
The business has built up an enviable reputation within the area and further afield for the very high quality of the fayre 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, perhaps by opening 7 days per week. A new owner could also embark on a modest marketing campaign to highlight the excellent food and service offered. The business already has a very informative website in place, which could incorporate online booking facilities. Our client has also taken advantage of social media, with a Facebook page, which has nearly 800 likes.
This is a wonderful 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 viewing must come highly recommended to avoid disappointment.
The Tapas Bar occupies substantial two storey premises, ideally located on the very busy A646 Burnley Road, within the town of Todmorden, West Yorkshire. The Tapas Bar is surrounded by a wealth of complimentary shops and business, therefore benefiting from a very high volume of footfall and passing trade. The business further benefits from on street parking facilities to the front of the premises.
