Hilton Smythe are delighted to present to the market a highly sought after licensed café bar and Restaurant business located within the centre of Northwich in East Cheshire. The business occupies a spacious ground floor lock- up premises (Potential for living quarters above) with a wide, corner frontage and prominent signage.

The unique decorative style creates a warm friendly European feel, allowing for easy free owing conversations.
The business has been under the careful and meticulous ownership of our client for a number of years, building up an excellent reputation. The business has only now come to the open market as our client wishes to leave the industry due wanting to focus on other business interests and who would like to see the business passed to someone with the same drive and enthusiasm to take it forward.

There is so much to look at in this quirky place, brilliant talking points if your struggling for conversation on a first date. 10 out of 10 if you ask me.”
We feel there is scope to increase turnover, with the undertaking of a robust local marketing campaign, via social media and press along with further promotion of the dedicated website to further help promote the business. Also, it must be stated that the business would further benefit from longer opening hours to help increase turnover.
Our client has yet to implement Sunday roasts which is their next step, to increase Sunday takings, they also have plans for an early doors acoustic session 4pm - 8pm to gain more customers on a Sunday, they have done similar on the Thursday, creating circa £500 extra weekly income.
Also bringing in live musicians on a Friday to keep dinners longer, whilst bringing extra drinkers in for a lovely relaxed social. Expected extra revenue £1.5K to £2K per week.
This still leaves extra opening hours on a Monday - Wednesday, with extra opening still available Thursday, Friday & Saturday, with no change to the licence.
This is an outstanding turn-key business which offers a new owner the opportunity to take this popular business to the next level.
Very rarely do businesses in such a great trading location come onto the open market already securing a great financial position, yet still offering great growth! We therefore highly recommend early viewings to avoid disappointment.
