- Tenure: Leasehold
Hilton Smythe is delighted to welcome to the market this well-established and very popular sandwich bar and coffee shop in Ilkeston, Derbyshire. The business was established in 1995 and has been in our clients’ careful ownership since 2012. Only now is the business, reluctantly, being offered to the market due to our clients’ desire for a well-deserved retirement. The business operates 6 days per week. Our clients offer a wide range of fayre including all day breakfasts, burgers, hot & cold sandwiches, hot meals, confectionery and hot & cold beverages, to name a few. Our clients also offers outside catering and the sale of the business includes a number of lucrative contracts. The property offers a 12 cover café area and a well-equipped kitchen, along with two cellars for storage. The business boasts an impressive food hygiene rating of 5. The business has built up an enviable reputation within the area for the high quality of the food and service 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. A new owner could also continue to develop the outside catering arm of the business, perhaps by embarking on a modest marketing campaign to highlight the goods and services offered. The business would also benefit from the launch of a website to promote the fayre. This is an excellent opportunity for a new owner to take this already thriving sandwich bar and coffee shop to the next level; therefore early viewing must come highly recommended to avoid disappointment.
The business is owner run and managed with 1 x part time staff member.
The business is open: Monday – Friday: 7.00am – 3.00pmSaturday: 7.00am – 2.00pmSunday: Closed
