Hilton Smythe is proud to present to the market The Food Hamper.
The Food Hamper is a well-known local café which specialises in
• Hot and cold sandwiches
• Tea and coffee
• Cold drinks
Our client established the café 10 years ago but now has reluctantly decided to sell due to wanting to relocate. The business is currently turning over £46,260 per annum and has a gross profit of 64%.
Although this is a good and healthy turnover we feel as though the new owner could improve it by
• Extending the opening hours on weekends
• Possibly start outside catering
• Delivering to local residents and businesses
• Extending the menu
The café has been awarded the 5-star hygiene award as is also completed with a Facebook page which is posted on daily with new additions to the menu and daily meal deals.
The café has 8 covers has a very modern day feel to it.
The businesses accommodation is large and spacious, this is an excellent opportunity for a new owner to take this already thriving business to the next level; therefore, early viewing must come highly recommended to avoid disappointment.
