Business Description
Veritas Business Sales are delighted to offer for sale this delightful Italian Restaurant which is located in Bideford. The business was established by our clients 5 years ago and has been in their careful hands ever since. Reluctantly the business is now being offered for sale so they can enjoy a well deserved retirement. Since ownership they have continually invested in new equipment along with fixtures & fittings which are all bought and paid for and included within the sale price which is a huge plus for any new purchaser as additional funds will not need to be spent for some time. The Italian Kitchen is owner operated and employs the help of 4 part time members of staff and has an annual turnover of circa £135,743 with a GP of (75.3%). They serve a fine range of rustic Italian classics which can be accompanied with some fine wines which can all be enjoyed in a relaxed and cosy atmosphere. All fayre is freshly prepared to order on site using only the finest Italian produce which has gained them a Tripadvsor certificate of excellence 2016,2017 and 2018 with a 5 star rating. We believe that there is further potential to increase trade by extending upon the current opening times and opening lunch times as well as opening on Sundays & Mondays which they currently do not do. The business already enjoys a strong reputation within the local community and beyond and as such has a high level of regular and repeat trade along with many visiting tourists. This is a superb opportunity to purchase an established business with further 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.
