Popular Cafe/Sandwich Bar/Takeaway Business in Edinburgh For Sale
Edinburgh, City of Edinburgh
Ref: 2588 A
Hilton Smythe is delighted to welcome to the market this well-established and busy café and sandwich takeaway business, ideally located in Edinburgh, Scotland. The business was established in 2000 and has been in our client’s careful ownership since 2014. Only now is the business being offered to the market due to our client’s desire to re-locate due to family commitments. The business operates 5½ days per week and generates a turnover in the region of £75,000 per annum, with a gross profit of approximately 47%. Our client offers a varied range of food including personally made sandwiches, Panini’s, salads and soups, or you can make your own salad or sandwich, as well as cakes and locally brewed artisan roast coffee. The property is well presented and maintained to a high standard and well fitted to suit the trade. The business has built up an enviable reputation within the area for the high quality of the fayre 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 the turnover could be increased by extending the opening hours, perhaps by opening earlier for the lucrative breakfast market. The business would also benefit from a small marketing campaign to highlight the food and services offered. This is an excellent opportunity for a new owner to take this café and sandwich business to the next level; therefore early viewing must come highly recommended to avoid disappointment.
