Hilton Smythe is delighted to welcome to the market this well-established and popular cafe business in Birmingham, West Midlands.
The business was established approximately 20 years ago and has been in our client’s careful ownership since 2013. Only now is the business being offered to the market due to our client’s desire to concentrate on other business interests. The cafe operates 6½ days per week and generates a turnover in the region of £94,000 per annum, with a good gross profit.
Our client offers a variety of fayre including breakfasts, hot and cold sandwiches with a variety of fillings, Paninis, hot meals, snacks and a wide selection of hot and cold beverages. The premises boast a well-equipped kitchen and preparation area and cafe seating for 25 covers internally and a further 12 in the beautifully laid out sun terrace.
The business has built up an enviable reputation within the area for the high quality of the goods 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 introduce a delivery service to local businesses and embark on a modest marketing campaign to promote the goods offered. The business would further benefit from the launch of a website to advertise the business.
This is an excellent opportunity for a new owner to take this already thriving business, with massive growth potential to the next level; therefore early viewing must come highly recommended to avoid disappointment.
