Hilton Smythe is delighted to welcome to the market this well-established and popular cafe and sandwich bar business in Birmingham, West Midlands. The business was originally established in the 1960s and has been in our client’s careful ownership since 2014. Only now is the business, reluctantly, being offered to the market due to our client’s desire for a well-deserved retirement and to concentrate on other interests. The business operates 6 days per week and generates a turnover in the region of £70,000 per annum, with a good gross profit. Our client offers a wide variety of fayre including all day breakfasts, hot and cold sandwiches, lunch dishes and hot snacks, as well as a selection of hot and cold beverages. Customers can eat-in or takeaway and the café area has tables and chairs for over 24 covers. The property is well presented and maintained to a high standard and benefits from a food hygiene rating of 5. The café in an established Hungry House agent and benefits from a high number of deliveries. The business has built up an enviable reputation within the area for the high quality of the goods and services offered, which has resulted in a very loyal client base, with a high volume of repeat trade and word of mouth referrals. We feel the turnover could be increased by extending the opening hours or perhaps by opening as a bistro in the evening. A new owner could also embark on a modest marketing campaign to promote the food and services offered. The business would also benefit from the launch of a website to advertise the business. This is an excellent opportunity for a new owner to take this already thriving business to the next level; therefore early viewing must come highly recommended to avoid disappointment.
