Hilton Smythe is delighted to welcome to the market Eclectic Kitchen & Deli, a well-established and popular cafe business in Ramsbottom, Lancashire.
The business was established by our client and her father in 2007, since then her father has retired and our client is now looking to concentrate on other business interests. The cafe operates 6 days per week and generates a turnover in the region of £80,000 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, salads, hot meals, snacks, tempting cakes, deli items and a wide selection of quality hot and cold beverages. The premises boast a well-equipped kitchen and preparation area and cafe seating for 10 covers.
The business has built up an enviable reputation within the area for the high quality of the products and service offered, which has resulted in a very loyal client base, with a high volume of repeat trade and word of mouth recommendations. Eclectic Kitchen & Deli also has a 5 star rating on Facebook, and 4.5 stars on trip advisor, with reviews stating “A true Ramsbottom Gem” and “Wonderful Fresh Sandwiches and pies”.
We feel there is scope to increase the turnover by extending the opening hours. The business currently offers an “in town” delivery service which could be extended to further afield with correct advertising. 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.
The current owner is happy to offer a handover to ensure the continued success of the business.
