Substantial Cafe in Affluent Location
Sheffield, South Yorkshire
Hilton Smythe is delighted to welcome to the market this well-established and very popular coffee shop business in Beauchief, Sheffield. The business was established by our client in 2012 and is only now being offered to the market due to our client’s other business interests. The business operates 7 days per week and generates an excellent turnover and good gross profit. Our client offers a variety of fayre including all breakfasts, sandwiches, snacks, lunches, salads, jacket potatoes and a kids menu, as well as a variety of hot and cold beverages including different blends of coffees and teas. The business is especially busy on Sunday’s, with our client offering an all-day breakfast, as well as a Sunday roast lunch, with a variety of meats available. Sankey’s Coffee Shop boasts a spacious 23 cover café and a well-equipped kitchen, as well as external patio seating area to the front of the premises, which is set over two levels. The premises are very well maintained and decorated to a very high standard. The business has built up an excellent reputation within the area for the high quality of the goods 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 in the evenings as a bistro. A new owner could also embark on a modest marketing campaign to promote the excellent goods and services offered. The business would further benefit from the launch of a website to advertise the cuisine offered. Our client has offered a small amount of outside catering, this could be expanded on to generate further income. This is an excellent opportunity for a new owner to take this already thriving and profitable business to the next level; therefore early viewing must come highly recommended to avoid disappointment.
