Property description

Business
Hilton Smythe welcomes to the market Jeeves Sandwich Bar & Deli, For Sale after several years of growth since 2014, due only to our client's other pressing business interests in Exeter.

A very popular and almost hub of the community style sandwich bar and deli, offering coffee, sandwiches, breakfast, baguettes, home-made and local produce such as pies, and meats, and regular lunchtime staples to take away or eat in. Benefitting an excellent sandwich round business, and plenty of outside catering; Jeeves can accommodate most light bite requests. Plenty of imaginative menus from breakfast in a box to a potato dog are included amongst regular toasties, sandwiches and salads.

Locally renowned with a superb reputation, much repeat and regular clientele and recognised as a bit of a hub of the community where you can stop and have a tea or coffee in-house whilst catching up on the latest TV news. Jeeves also benefits a regular and busy sandwich round recognised throughout the local area. Ranking well on TripAdvisor and similar online mediums, the business has an excellent Facebook page, but could benefit the introduction of a dedicated website, along with a customer loyalty scheme.

Although an already successful business that has been built up over the past few years, with an annually increasing turnover, there remains much scope and growth for a first time business buyer, or husband wife team or partnership.
