Property description

Business
Hilton Smythe welcomes to the market Happy Cat Cafe. This cafe was originally established over 10 years ago, and was taken over by our client in 2012. The owner is now looking to sell the business, due to the desire to focus on other options.

The business runs as a cafe offering a good range of food. Dishes include salads, sandwiches, pastas, hot breakfasts, paninis, soups, desserts and children’s meals, plus daily specials. Food can be eaten in, taken away or delivered.

The business generated a turnover in the region of £77,000 as per 2016 accounts, this is a healthy turnover; however, we feel this could be increased. The new owner should look to offer its services on sites such as JustEat and Hungryhouse. These are great sites that allow for large amounts of trade.

The cafe has a Facebook page, this is a great way of advertising a business. The page is regularly updated and has over 140 followers. A business website could also benefit the business.

The cafe offers some outside catering. The purchaser should look into expanding the catering arm of the business. Occasion cakes would also be a great asset. The premises are a generous size and could cater for more services.

This is a fantastic Leasehold opportunity that is not to be missed. Hilton Smythe highly advise early viewing to take in the full potential of the trade.

Happy Cat Cafe is located in Askern, Doncaster within South Yorkshire.
