Business Description
Veritas Business sales are delighted to offer for sale this respected Coffee Shop & Café which is located in Dudley town centre. The business was established by my client over 20 years ago and has been in his careful hands ever since and is now reluctantly being offered for sale due to other demanding business interests. Since ownership he has continually invested in new equipment, along with fixtures and fittings which are all bought and paid for and included within the sale price which means that any new purchaser will not need to spend any additional funds for some time. French Connection is currently managed by a team of 2 full time & 1 part time members of staff and has an average weekly turnover of circa £2,200. They serves a fine range of coffees, teas, cooked breakfasts, breakfast sandwiches, hot & cold sandwiches, paninis, jacket potatoes, burgers, omelettes, salad boxes and cold drinks. All fayre is freshly prepared to order and can be enjoyed within the spacious and cosy the café or taken away. We believe that there is further potential to increase trade should you wish to by having a more hands on owner operator, extending upon the current opening times, opening on Sundays and by joining the online delivery portals such as Just Eat or Deliveroo. The business enjoys a strong reputation within the local community and beyond and as such has a high level of regular and repeat trade along with plenty of passing trade. This is a superb opportunity to purchase an established business that still has untapped potential which is a great base to build upon and as such early viewing is highly recommended as this business is not to be missed.
