Business Description
Veritas Business sales are privileged to offer to the market this fantastic casual dining Bistro & Bar located in East Retford, Nottinghamshire. Situated in the tranquil setting by the water's edge, the premises was transformed from its original purpose, the towns fire station, into this stunning bar & bistro back in 1997. It has been in the careful hands of the current owners since 2020 and they are now offering the business for sale to focus on their own individual careers and feel the time is right to let the next guardian to take the business forward.
Since ownership they have, refurbished parts of the building, redecorated and installed new catering equipment along the way with quality fixtures and fittings to which most of the items are bought and paid for and included within the sale price which is a huge plus for the new owner as a large amount of funds will not need to be spent for some time. The ground floor offers seating capacity for 48 people inside and 42 people outside. The Baytree Bistro & Bar is managed and employs 5 full time and 6 part time members of staff and has an average weekly turnover of circa £7,000. They serve modern classic breakfasts, mouth-watering lunches and delicious main dishes suitable for all dietary types. The team provides the best possible dining experience in relaxed and comfortable surroundings.
We believe that there is huge opportunity to increase revenue should you wish, by simply extending the opening times, by building on the recently added takeaway service and joining the online delivery giants, Uber Eats, Deliveroo and Just Eat but also developing your own website. Other opportunities are upstairs where the space is currently being used for storage and could be used for additional seating, private parties or events. There is also an opportunity to build on and increase their social media presence or by franchising. This is a superb opportunity to purchase a turnkey business where all the hard work has been done which is a great base to build upon and such early viewing is highly recommended.
