Hilton Smythe is delighted to welcome to the market Meltdown, an extremely highly rated café business. The business was established by our client in 2017. Our client is looking for a new owner to take over her beloved business to move overseas to be closer to family.
This cafe specialises in Grilled Cheese sandwiches and Mac N Cheese, alongside Artisan Coffee, Beers and Soft Drinks. Additionally, they hold regular themed supper clubs which sell out on a monthly basis and offer private events.
The premises are fully licensed which would be beneficial should new owners wish to extend opening hours to evenings.
The Café is extremely popular and well known within the local community, the Trip Advisor reviews include comments stating "Incredible, Simply amazing, amazing toasties, great staff, accommodating, relaxing and my favourite place in Chester.... Can't recommend it enough"
Our client is offering a hand over period to ensure the continued success of the business, and would be happy to offer up to 1 month if the new buyer requires.
There is ample scope to expand the business, such as offering a delivery service locally, pushing advertising, and due to the fact the name is so well known and recommended locally and further afield, the possibility of franchising the brand or venturing to other locations could certainly be looked into. The business hours could easily be increased to help improve sales figures.
