Hilton Smythe welcomes to the market this busy cafe/restaurant/takeaway, with up to 40 covers in this popular location, very close to the centre of the vibrant city of Cardiff and the student area.
It is a trendy cafe which specialises in Cheesy eats and specially made treats including special cookies, see the website at . They also have a full alcohol license and hold regular events such as fondue and music evenings, advertised on Facebook, twitter, Instagram and Google.
We believe from the owner that the business is turning over around £5,000 per month, with these levels increasing all the time. They have recently gone onboard with Deliveroo and Uber eats which is also helping with these figures. You could increase the opening hours, offer more events and use the basement space fully, to drive the business forward and take it to the next level.
An internal inspection is very highly recommended to appreciate the space and potential on offer, to grow this business into the future.
Munchies is situated in a very busy commercial and residential location, with good student footfall, just over a mile from the centre on Cardiff.
Cardiff is the capital and largest city in Wales and the eleventh-largest city in the United Kingdom. The city is the country's chief commercial centre, the base for most national cultural and sporting institutions, the Welsh national media, and the seat of the National Assembly for Wales.
The unitary authority area's mid-2011 population was estimated to be 346,100, while the population of the Larger Urban Zone was estimated at 861,400 in 2009. Cardiff is also a significant tourist centre and the most popular visitor destination in Wales with 18.3 million visitors in 2010.
In 2011, Cardiff was ranked sixth in the world in National Geographic's alternative tourist destinations. All of this adds to Cardiff being a very desirable location, with commercial property being in much demand.
The current owner has run the business since July 2017, but now due to a change in circumstances is looking to relocate back to his home town.
