Veritas Business Sales are delighted to offer for sale this respected Coffee Shop/Tea room & Sandwich
Bar/takeaway concern. The business has been established for over 20 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 ill health.
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 1 part time and 6 casual members of staff and has an annual turnover of £250,000 with a GP of 70%.
The coffee shop/tea rooms equates to 50% of the turnover, the sandwich bar/takeaway equates to 40% of
turnover and the remaining 10% is from the buffets & outside catering. The business serves a fine selection
of freshly prepared sandwiches, baguettes, jacket potatoes, salads, soups, hot daily main course specials,
pasties, pies, home made quiches & cakes, specialist teas & coffees, cold drinks and crisps which can be
eaten in or taken away.
We believe that there is further potential to increase trade by expanding on the outside catering & buffets
and they have just be granted a permit to sell ice cream outside. 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.
