Veritas Business Sales are delighted to offer for sale this respected Café concern which is located in Shirley. The business has been established for over 4 years and has been in the careful hand of my clients for the last 2 ½ years and is reluctantly being offered for sale due to the fact that they are emigrating. Since ownership they have 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. The business is owner operated and requires the help of 5 casual members of staff and year end figures for 2014-2015 shows an annual turnover of £70,714 with a GP of 73%. Since then they have introduced Just Eat which has increased trade and the forecast turnover for the year will be circa £100K. The café serves a fine selection of freshly prepared breakfasts, hot & cold sandwiches, baguettes, jacket potatoes, soups, hot daily specials, teas, coffees, and cold drinks, all of which are freshly prepared on site using only the finest produce and can be eaten in or taken away. We believe that there is further potential to increase trade by expanding on the opening hours, maybe opening evenings as a bistro and adding 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. 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.
