Property description

Hilton Smythe welcomes to the market Pleasant Eatery.

There has been a cafe on this popular site for over 30 years and the current owner has run it successfully and lucratively for the last 10 years and the business has flourished under her ownership.

The business is now being sold albeit reluctantly and with a heavy heart only due to the owners wish to take a well-earned retirement and spend more time with her grandchildren.

Pleasant Eatery is a popular cafe and sandwich shop offering;

•Light lunches
•Hot and cold snacks
•Hot and cold sandwiches
•Jacket potatoes
•Teas, coffees and hot
•Cakes and pastries.
•Breads and rolls.

Additionally, the business provides sandwiches for local stores and fills the vending machines at several local businesses.

The business has lots of regular customers many of whom are known on a first name basis by the current owner who is a popular and well-respected member of the local community.

The business is proud of its five-star hygiene rating. The business enjoys great visibility on the internet with many flattering reviews.

Scope to Improve

1.Advertising and marketing campaign
2.Maximise the use of social media particularly Facebook and Twitter
3.Extend the opening hours perhaps by opening as a bistro in the evenings
4.Website to extol services offered ideally with an online ordering facility
5.Develop the outside catering side of the business
6.Start a sandwich round delivering to local businesses
7.Introduce a Sunday Roast offering, lots of older residents locally who would find this useful.

Hilton Smythe highly advise early to avoid disappointment.
