Business Description
Veritas Business Sales are delighted to offer for sale this respected Café/Coffee Shop & Bakery which is located in Henley In Arden. The premises dates back circa 200 years as a bakery and has been in her careful hands of our client since April 2016 and is now being offered for sale to pursue business commitments. Since ownership my client has 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. Henley Kitchen & Bakery is overseen by the owner and employs the help of 1 self employed baker along with 1 full time and 7 part time members of staff. They serve a fine range of scones, cakes, freshly made soups, freshly cut sandwiches, toasties, cooked breakfasts, jacket potatoes and a varied lunch menu. The fully equipped bakery to the rear bakes daily to supply the café with bread & cakes and all fare is freshly prepared to order on site using only the finest locally sourced produce and can be enjoyed with a selection of specialist coffees, teas, soft drinks, beers wines or spirits. Turnover available on application. We believe that there is further potential to increase revenue should you wish, by extending upon the current opening times, opening on Sundays & as a Bistro of an evening and promoting outside catering. 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 many new visitors. This is a superb opportunity to purchase an established business which is a great base to build upon and as such early viewing is highly recommended as this gem is not to be missed.
