Business Description
Veritas Business Sales are delighted to offer for sale this respected Coffee Shop & Café which is located in Coventry. The business was established by our clients 14 months ago is reluctantly being offered for sale due to unforeseen personal circumstances. Since ownership they have undertaken considerable refurbishment and 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. Serene Lounge is owner operated and employs the help of 3 part time members of staff and has an average monthly turnover of circa £9,000. They serve a fine range of hand crafted coffee, speciality teas, frappes, thick shakes, smoothies, craft beers, wines, soft drinks, afternoon tea with prosecco, breakfast menu, sandwiches, toasties, panini’s, lunch specials, soup, jacket potatoes, cakes and ice creams. All fayre can be enjoyed in a relaxed cosy atmosphere or taken away. The business has the benefit of a premises licence to serve alcohol which enables them to do theme nights for additional revenue which have proved to be popular. We believe that the business would benefit from a husband & wife combination or more hands on owner operator. The business has built a strong reputation within the local community and beyond and as such has a high level of regular and repeat trade along with new passing trade. This is a superb opportunity to purchase a 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.
