Veritas Business sales are delighted to offer for sale this respected Coffee shop & Tea rooms concern which is located in the historic town centre of Market Drayton. The business has been established since the 1970s and has been in the careful hands of our clients for the last 7 years and is reluctantly being offered for sale so that he can enjoy a well deserved retirement. Since ownership of the business 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. Owner operated, the business requires between 1 and 5 additional part time staff each day depending on the season and has an annual turnover of around £100,000 with a GP of approximately 78%. The business serves a fine range of specialist teas and coffees, cold drinks, breakfasts, light lunches, daily specials, hot & cold snacks, sandwiches, and home made soups. All meals are prepared on site and they only use the freshest locally sourced produce. We believe that there is further potential to increase trade by maybe opening evenings as a bistro or extending the menu to include afternoon cream teas. The business enjoys a strong reputation within the local community and beyond and as such has a high level of regular and repeat trade and of course is reliant on the many visiting tourists. 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 business is not to be missed.
