Franchise – Subway in Busy Footfall Area
Please quote reference B05920
Hilton Smythe are delighted to present to the market an impeccably presented Subway Franchise with both internal and external seating areas.
The business is currently in the process of a full refurbishment, which is due to complete May 2021.
The ‘Turn-key’ opportunity is now been made available for sale due to our clients wish to spend more quality time with her family. The franchise was established by our client 7 years ago and is now priced at a market price to achieve a quick sale, we therefore recommend early enquires to avoid disappointment.
The Subway brand is world famous for its consistent quality from the level of service, sandwich ingredients/choices and drinks. The first Subway opened in the U.K. in 1996 and since expanded at an exceptional rate which continues to expand. The UK head office is based in Cambridge, offering support on R & D, Lessing, customer services, training and franchisee services.
Subway has invested heavily in developing their existing menu options by adding more health-conscious salads, wraps, plant based options and smaller toasted bites which is proven very successful.
Currently the business is derived from both mobile ordering and walk- in customers, however our client informs us that Just Eat will also be going live soon which will significantly increase the turnover levels.
There is a loyal customer base included which includes shoppers, local office workers and medical staff. There is also a consistent order of business platters from the local Doctors and offices.
This store is completely staff managed with minimal input from our client, any new owner may continue with this structure of operation or take a more hands on control which would significantly reduce the labour costs.
We believe a fresh pair of eyes would help boost the advertising and awareness of the business. Increasing the outside platters and deliveries should be the focus as well applying for more chairs/tables to the front of the shop.
The business is also currently operating on reduced opening hours without the breakfast trade which will again instantly boost the current sales when this returns to normal.
As of the 2019 accounts, the business generated an annual Turnover of £162,403 with an Adjusted net profit in the region of £18,000 - £19,0000.
