High Quality Pizzeria & Grill In Tourist Town
Skipton, North Yorkshire
Hilton Smythe is delighted to welcome to the market Oakley`s Grill and Pizzeria. The business was originally established in 2009 by our clients who have run this restaurant to a very high standard. The owner is now looking to sell the restaurant, due to the desire relocate abroad. This is a specialist restaurant serving excellent quality foods and pizzas. The business has an outstanding reputation in the area for the great tasting food. They offer a generous menu with tasty Italian classics such as pastas, pizzas and risottos, each come with the option of sides and extras. The business is run from a beautiful premise perfect for the trade. The restaurant is set upon three floors with approximately 140 covers. There are great views of the canal from the main seating areas making this a relaxing place to eat. We are advised by our client that there are occasions when tables need to be booked two weeks in advance. The restaurant is very popular and promotes an enviable reputation. This reflects in the turnover generated each year. According to accounts year ending March 2015 the turnover is approximately, £604,000 per annum with a gross profit of 53%. Our clients advise that the turnover is increasing year on year. One way we feel the new owner could boost turnover would be to open longer hours. By offering breakfasts and light lunches the business could benefit from some extra trade daily. The restaurant currently opens in the evenings during the week and lunches and evenings over the weekends. Offering themed nights throughout the week would be a great way of boosting repeat trade. On the second floor there is a large room which is used for dining and private functions. Our clients don’t charge for hiring the room and can provide a personalised service for their customers. The room has many bookings but could be promoted more on free social media sites such as Facebook and Twitter. The business already has a great online presence, on review sites such as TripAdvisor. They have over 250 excellent reviews from very happy customers. This is a fantastic opportunity not to be missed. We highly advise the purchaser must have experience in the trade, in order to run this business to its full potential. Hilton Smythe advise early viewing to take in the full extent of the business.
