Property description

Business
Hilton Smythe is delighted to welcome to the market Ramblers Cafe, a well-established and popular cafe business in Arnside, Carnforth.

Ramblers Cafe has been established for around 9 years. Our client took over 2.5 years ago and has enjoyed his time running the business. However, the owner now looks to retire.

Our client offers a variety of fayre including breakfasts, hot and cold sandwiches with a variety of fillings, salads, hot meals, snacks and a wide selection of hot and cold beverages. The premises boast a well-equipped kitchen, preparation area and cafe seating for 22 covers.

The premise has a licence to trade 8:30am – 6pm 7 days a week.

The business has built up an enviable reputation and boasts excellent reviews on Google and TripAdvisor. Our client’s reputation has resulted in a very loyal client base, with a high volume of repeat trade and word of mouth recommendations, not to mention the footfall from the passing trade.

The cafe is also on the route of the Cross Bay Walk, generating custom from the walkers; there are 18 scheduled events per year.

We feel there is scope to increase the turnover by extending the opening hours. The business would further benefit from advertising, offering an outside catering service and delivering on a wider scale.

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.
