Hilton Smythe is delighted to welcome to the market this well-established and very popular tea room and gift shop business in Crosspool, Sheffield. The business was established by our client in 2012 and is only now being offered to the market due to our client`s desire for a well-deserved retirement. The business is currently open at a pace to suit our client and operates 5 days per week, generating a turnover in the region of £29,000 per annum, with a gross profit of approximately 67%. Our client offers a wide range of teas, coffee, cakes, snacks and other refreshments, as well as locally produced gifts such as craftwork, greeting cards, artwork, preserves and toys, all of which are sold on a commission basis. Our client also has a regular contract with a local football team for outside catering services. The business has built up an excellent reputation within the area for the high quality of the fayre and goods available, as well as the excellent service offered, which has resulted in a very loyal client base, with a vast amount of repeat trade and word of mouth referrals. The business has a monopoly position within the area with no local competition. The business currently holds an A1 licence and 5* hygiene rating. We feel the turnover could be increased by extending the opening hours of the business, perhaps by opening at weekends. The business would also benefit from a modest marketing campaign to highlight the business and services offered. A new owner could also introduce a website to promote the business. This is an excellent opportunity for a new owner to take this thriving business to the next level; therefore early viewing must come highly recommended.
The business is owner run and managed with 1 x part-time staff member.
The business is open: Monday: 10.00am- 2.00pmTuesday – Friday: 9.00am – 4.00pmSaturday – Sunday: Closed
