Hilton Smythe welcomes to the market Sandwich Corner. The business was established in this location in 2000. Our client then took over the cafe in 2015. The owner is now looking to sell the business, due to ill health.
The business runs as a cafe and sandwich shop in a prime trading location. They offer an excellent range of foods to eat in the 36-cover cafe or to takeaway. A delivery service is also available to the local area. The menu includes hot breakfasts, sandwiches, paninis, toasties, wraps, salads, pastas, burgers and much more. The business features its menu on takeaway sites such as JustEat and Hungry House.
The business generated a turnover in the region of £115,000 as of the 2016 accounts, with a gross profit of 67%. This is a healthy turnover, with scope to be increased. We feel that the purchaser could look to market the outside catering service. Extending opening hours could further boost trade.
The cafe has a business website, this is included in the sale. This is great site however, we feel that an online ordering service could benefit the business further. The Facebook page compliments the site and has over 190 followers and is kept regularly updated.
This is a fantastic long-established business opportunity that is not to be missed. The cafe would be a perfect business for a husband and wife team or partnership. Hilton Smythe highly advise early viewing to take in the full potential of the trade.
