Hilton Smythe proudly introduces AJ’s Ice Cream Parlour and Coffee Shop. This beautifully presented business was founded by our client in 2006 and since then has become a clear favourite with both regular customers and visitors alike.
The business has an excellent reputation in a great trading position opposite the child friendly Valley Gardens and income is generated from an extensive ice cream menu with a wide variety of ices and sundaes all produced on-site from the commercial kitchen.
Additionally, the business has a well presented cafe with modern seating for 40 covers serving a selection of good quality hot beverages, cold drinks, breakfasts, snacks, sandwiches/baguettes, toasted sandwiches, paninis, homemade quiche, jacket potatoes and house specials, with a daily selection of homemade cakes and pastries.
Furthermore, there are two good sized rooms above the premises, currently utilised as storage offering the potential to increase the cafe area or subject to planning permission convert to living accommodation for owner’s or let out to generate additional income.
We feel the business has great potential for further development with extended hours, perhaps offering an evening bistro menu in the winter months to boost turnover and taking advantage of the alcohol licence and music licence already in situ.
The business would also benefit from an injection of marketing and perhaps by advertising on social media websites such as Facebook or Twitter would further promote awareness of this fantastic business which reluctantly comes to the market as our clients look towards retirement.
