Property description

Business

Hilton Smythe welcomes to the market Dawns Pantry Ltd.

There has been a food based business at these premises for thirty years plus, with the current owner successfully running the business for the last 2 years and is only selling due to a change of direction career wise.

The business has many regular customers and benefits from high levels of footfall and passing trade. The business has good visibility on the internet with a Facebook page with 735 likes and enjoys good reviews.

We believe there could be several possibilities to increase turnover:-

Extend the opening hours by perhaps trading on a Sunday or opening as a bistro in the evenings

Advertising and marketing campaign

Maximise the use of social media

Promote the outside catering side of the business perhaps by offering Sunday lunches to older customers. There are two Mcarthy & Stone residential homes within easy walking distance

Offer a loyalty card /scheme

Develop a sandwich round to service local businesses.

Explore the possibility of using online delivery platforms such as Hungry House, Just Eat and delivery.
