Hilton Smythe is delighted to welcome to the market this thriving and popular cafe business in Ogmore Vale, Mid Glamorgan. Litebite Cafe was founded by our client in 2007 and since then has spent a considerable amount of time and money fully refurbishing the cafe creating a lovely atmosphere with good quality solid furniture with a lively vibrant decor. Immaculately presented, very clean and tidy with food prepared in the commercial kitchen. Only now is the business being offered to the market due to our clients wish for a well-deserved retirement.
Litebite Cafe provides a wide selection of foods all freshly prepared including breakfasts, lunch time specials, snacks and hot and cold sandwiches, as well as a variety of hot and cold beverages. The Food Standards Agency (fsa) recently rated the business as 5/5 for food hygiene. The business is open 6 days per week and generates a turnover in the region of £45,000 with a gross profit of 50%. We feel turnover could be increased by extending the opening hours and perhaps opening on Sunday.
We also feel the business would benefit from establishing a website to advertise the business and the food and services offered. There is also scope for a delivery service to local businesses. The premises boast a spacious cafe area and a well-equipped commercial kitchen This is an excellent opportunity for a new owner to take this business to the next level; therefore early viewing must come highly recommended.
