Sussex Barista is located in the busy West Sussex town of Barnham, near Bognor Regis. This impressive coffee shop has an excellent position in the very heart of the town centre and was fully refurbished in 2014 by the current owner. Sussex Barista is situated on the main road with free parking facilities and directly opposite Barnham mainline train station.
The town is active throughout the day with local residents, plus staff from the various independent retailers and national chains, along with approx. 150/200 staff which work at the train depot which is also on the main high street next door to the business.
Sussex Barista was re-branded by our client and provides what is now a well renowned take away business, although there is space for 9 internal covers and space for 6 – 8 external covers for those wanting to sit and eat, making it family and dog friendly.
Since taking over the business, our client has established a loyal and regular customer base and generates an average income of c. £800 - £1,200 per week. The majority of the income comes from coffee sales which generate excellent gross profit margins to the tune of c. 70%, with food led sales in the region of 50% gross margins, making this business profitable for any hands on operator.
