Hilton Smythe is delighted to welcome to the market this well-established and popular café business in the popular seaside city of Brighton, East Sussex. The business was established by our client in 2012 and is only now being offered to the market due to our clients’ family circumstances. The business currently operates 6 days per week and generates a very healthy turnover in the region of £78,000 per annum, with a gross profit of approximately 55%. Our client offers a wide range of fayre including full English breakfasts, freshly made hot and cold sandwiches, burgers and a range of lunchtime meals, as well as a good selection of hot and cold beverages. The premises boasts a large dining area with approximately 30 covers and a fully equipped commercial kitchen. The café boasts an excellent food hygiene rating of four. The business has built up an excellent reputation within the area for the high quality of the food and services offered, which has resulted in a very loyal client base, with a high volume of repeat trade and word of mouth recommendations. We feel there is scope to increase the turnover by extending the opening hours to take advantage of the late afternoon, early evening trade. A new owner could also embark on a modest marketing campaign to highlight the excellent fayre and services offered. There is also the opportunity to offer deliveries to the businesses within the area. This is an excellent opportunity for a new owner, perhaps a husband and wife team, to take this popular café business to the next level; therefore early viewing must come highly recommended to avoid disappointment.
The business is owner run and managed with 2 x staff members.
The business is open: Monday – Friday: 6.30pm – 2.30pmSaturday: 7.00pm – 2.00pmSunday: Closed
