Business Description
Veritas Business Sales are delighted to offer for sale this outstanding Café located in the highly desirable and affluent Leamington Spa. Established 4 years ago, the business is now reluctantly being offered for sale due to an overseas relocation. The property has received continuous investment, refurbished and refitted with a stylish flair that is attractive for any coffee enthusiast. Equipment, fixtures and fittings will be included with the sale price which is a huge cost saving for any purchaser wishing to hit the ground running with this already commercially established business. The business employs 7 full time and 16 part time members of staff and has an annual turnover in excess of £570,000 net of VAT with a GP of circa 70%. 80% of revenue is ‘sit in’ and the remaining 20% from takeaway sales. Coffee Architects is without doubt the most successful eatery in town. It is a confident and bespoke brand that offers a unique taste experience. The menu appeals to the health conscious and cake-lover alike, providing popular dishes such as avocado smash and halloumi on sourdough specials, shakshuka, Billy can beans, eggs benedict, French toast, banana loaf, Lebanese flatbreads, rainbow salads and legendary cakes. Outgrowing its premises with customer demand in just 10 months, a cosy partially-covered outdoor seating area has been created that accommodates an additional (20) people. A popular seating area for students, informal business meetings and families. Coffee Architects is not just another coffee shop. It is a business driven with an internal passion for the finer things in life. Known for its generous portions that cater for all ranges of allergens and dietary requirements at the best value. Customers are at the heart of this business, and they have built a strong reputation with the local community and beyond which is evident from the large, yet organic, social media following and press coverage that this business has received in such a short time. We believe that there is further potential to increase trade by opening on Monday’s and expanding the brand to additional Warwickshire locations. We also consider this to be the perfect franchise model which could expand nationwide. This is a superb opportunity to purchase an established business which has only scratched the surface and comes with huge growth potential. Early viewing is highly recommended as this business is not to be missed.
