Property description

Business
Hilton Smythe are delighted to present to the market a charming tea room business with massive opportunity to double the current clients turnover.

Having been in our clients’ hands for 3 years the Tea room was developed to run alongside and complement our clients’ main business the Daisy Cake Company.

The business offers a simple menu of drinks, cakes, soups, toasted sandwiches, cream and afternoon teas with 18 covers however the potential of this business is to extend the current menu to include more savoury choices, increase the takeaway coffee and food side as well as establish a local delivery service which is now in immediate demand since the other local cafe business closing due to retirement.

We also feel adding some outside catering would best utilise the large lower ground kitchen currently used for cake production.

Our client is selling due to the expansion of the cake ordering side and would be happy to supply a range of the current cakes to any new buyer.

The cafe serves its drinks and food on lovely vintage crockery and cake stands which will be included in the sale.

Our client is happy to offer a handover period to assist with the smooth transition of ownership.
