Hilton Smythe welcomes to the market On A Roll, For Sale after many years successfully running this busy café, our client is now wishing to take a different direction.
A busy hub of the Southmead community and noted for its keen price point, On A Roll is a great little entry level business. Currently serving café style sit down menus, take away, and food on the go. There is everything on offer from breakfast, cakes, tea & coffee, to jacket potato, light bites and many home-made staples, to sandwiches, smoothies, and baguettes.
Locally renowned with a valued and long standing regular clientele, the business has also in the past run some clever social media competitions locally to retain custom and interest. In our client's ownership for over 10 years, the café has a good mix of sit down and food to go custom. Some further social media, and or a dedicated website could be of benefit.
Although an already successful business that has been built up over the many years trading, there is plenty of organic growth and scope for an incoming party. Ideal for a husband wife team or partnership, or an entry level first time buyer. As the demand is there, it will be possible to experiment with the opening hours, which have historically been very much run and operated on a lifestyle basis to suit our vendor.
