Hilton Smythe is delighted to present one of Shoreham’s most desirable cafe/bistro businesses to the open market.
The ‘turn-key’ business opportunity has undergone a complete refurbishment since our clients purchased the business in 2019. In our opinion, this is now the most prestigious unit now available on East street and therefore would highly recommend early enquiry to avoid disappointment.
Our clients have invested in the region of £100,000 on upgrading both the interior decor as well as re-placing all of the tired equipment with high quality catering units which will last for many years to come.
It is clear to see from the business photographs attached, the level of detail that has been applied in all areas of the refurbishment.
The upstairs dining area is an ideal space for private parties, celebrations or business meetings. It can comfortably accommodate 20 covers.
Our clients have concentrated on daytime trading only and advise that any new owner would significantly benefit from opening in the evening to cater for the increasing demand for new bistros.
Currently the menu offers the following -
- Redber coffee, Birchall teas, Hot chocolates
