Quaint Cafe and Fine Dining Business In Hampshire
Ref: 2658 J
Hilton Smythe are delighted to welcome to the market Gyspy Kitchen. The business is a well-established café and fine dining business. Originally established in the 1980’s under a different name, and taken over by our client in 2013 with a change of name the business has thrived in such a short time. The business is currently generating an advised turnover of £75,898 per annum with a gross profit of 71%. With a trained chief on site, using locally sourced produce to create all their handmade products. The business is well known in the area, and has gained fabulous reviews on TripAdvisor for the great hospitality and amazing food. The business has a supper club Friday which sells out every week. This business also caters for outside events, which generates a good chunk of revenue. The business would benefit from increasing opening hours and opening on Mondays. The business doesn’t have an alcohol licence but can be arranged if required. Opening nights could open up to a larger customer base, and would increase profits. Our client is now looking to sell the business due to other business ventures. This thriving business has been well established in such a small period of time. The business would certainly benefit from a determined and well-motivated new owner, to continue this fantastic business. I highly recommend viewing this fantastic opportunity.
We are advised the turnover for the business is around £75,898 per annumWith a gross profit of 71%
