Business Description
Veritas Business Sales are delighted to offer for sale this respected Bistro & Wine Bar which is located in the desirable market town of Stroud. The business has been established for over 20 years and has been in the careful hands of my client for the past 3 years and is reluctantly being offered for sale due to personal reasons. Since ownership they have undertaken extensive refurbishment and invested in new equipment along with fixtures & fittings which are all bought and paid for and included within the sale price which is a huge plus for any new purchaser as additional funds will not need to be spent for some time. The business is over seen by the current owner but mainly operates by 2 full time & 2 part time part time members of staff and has an average weekly turnover of circa £1,800. J Rool Bistro offers a fine breakfast menu, lunchtime menu and evening menu to include a daily specials board. Food sales are approximately 70% of the turnover and all meals are cooked fresh to order using only the freshest locally sourced produce. The remaining 30% comes from wet sales where from 6pm on Thursday, Friday & Saturday the first floor operates as a wine bar. They hold a vast range of world wide wines accompanied by tapas which can all be enjoyed in a relaxed, casual and cosy atmosphere. We believe that there is further potential to increase trade as the current owners are not from a catering background and this would ideally suit owner operators such as a husband & wife team or a young chef wanting to make a name by virtue of their food. The business has built a strong reputation within the local community and beyond and as such has a high level of regular and repeat trade along with many passing tourists & shoppers. This is a superb opportunity to purchase an established with further potential which is a great base to build upon and as such early viewing is highly recommended as this business is not to be missed.
