Hilton Smythe are delighted to offer to the market a contemporary and thriving coffee shop and fresh food cafe. Established by our client in March 2017 and now offered for sale due to family commitments.
The centrally positioned business offers organic locally sourced coffee, teas made with milk, unsweetened almond, oat milk or soya. A large selection of pressed juices, iced coffees, smoothies and waters.
The menu includes vegetarian, gluten free and vegan options.
Breakfast options include local pastries, fruit and granola combinations, smoothies with brunch/lunch options of topped sour dough toast, toasted sandwiches, salads, daily specials and cakes.
The newly formed business with massive growth from opening of £5,000 per month to £10,000 in only 6 months. The exciting menu offers options not available in other similar cafe units. The loyal customer base is an enviable mixture of local office workers during the week and local residents on Saturdays. Our client does not open Sundays which would be highly appreciated in this bustling town.
Our client informs us 60% of trade is takeaway orders and 40% sit down customers with a busy coffee period in the morning and busy lunchtime trade between 12 and 2. The iced coffee range is extremely popular in the summer months.
A full handover period can be offered to the purchaser if required.
