Veritas Business sales are privileged to offer to the market this quaint Coffee Shop which is located in Moreton In Marsh. The business was established by our clients back in 2016 and is now being offered for sale so that they can enjoy a well deserved retirement. The property dates back to circa 1650, is grade II listed and since ownership there has been significant investment in the upkeep of the premises to include re-wiring, new signage and the installation of new equipment along with fixtures and fittings which are all bought and paid for and included within the sale price which is a huge plus for a new owner as additional funds will not need to be spent for some time. Marthas Coffee House is owner operated and employs the help of 1 full time & 3 part time members of staff along with 3 weekend workers and posted an annual turnover for year ending 31st March 2019 of £127, 671 net of vat with a GP of £88,776 (70%). The menu offers artisan coffee, teas, hot chocolate, milkshakes, soft drinks, All Day Breakfasts, Daily Specials, freshly cut sandwiches , toasties, salads, homemade soups, freshly baked cakes and savoury and traditional scones. All food is freshly prepared to order on site, using only the finest locally sourced produce. We believe that there is further potential to increase revenue should you wish, by extending the current opening times and opening evenings as a bistro (planning permission already acquired). The business already 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 tourists and was runner up in Cotswold’s Life’s ‘Best Café’ Competition and has a review in Lonely Planet. This is a superb opportunity to purchase a turnkey 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.
