Business Description
Veritas Business Sales are delighted to offer this respected, quirky and award winning Coffee shop which is located in the vibrant city centre of Truro. The business has been established since 2012 and has been in the careful hands of our client since 2016.
Since purchase the current owner has continually invested in new equipment, fixtures and fittings which are all included in the sale price, along with regular redecoration to maintain standards which is a huge plus for any new purchaser as additional funds will not need to be spent for some time.
Grounded is very much owner operated, employs 2 part time members of staff and achieved a 2016-17 turnover of £56,000 with a healthy gross profit, increased to £72,000 2017-18. Serving locally sourced artisan coffee and organic teas along with fresh pastries, breakfasts, sandwiches, homemade soups, daily specials and cakes, the business enjoys a busy takeaway trade as well as local deliveries. All food is freshly prepared on site to order using the best local produce.
We believe that there is further potential to increase trade by extending the opening to evenings as well as Sundays and bank holidays. The business enjoys a strong reputation locally (and nationally on Trip Advisor, Facebook, Google) for its high quality and as such has a high level of regular local trade along with many tourists, some of whom have been visiting every year since opening. 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 superb business is not to be missed.
