Serious offers ConsideredHilton Smythe welcomes to the market The Village Pantry. The business was originally established around 15 years ago. This is a well-established café that has an enviable reputation. The owner has run the business since 2010 but is now looking to sell due to the desire to focus on other business opportunities. The business runs as a traditional town café selling a fantastic range of delicious foods to eat-in or takeaway. They serve breakfasts, lunches, snacks and teas and coffees. They sell foods such as sandwiches, jacket potatoes and hot breakfasts. They also offer specials such as scampi, lasagne and faggots. The café generates an advised turnover of around £79,000 per annum with a gross profit of 45%. This is a great turnover that could be increased in several ways. Some ways we feel turnover could be increased would be to-Maximise the use of social mediaDevelop a websiteOffer deliveries to local industrial estatesConsider Just eat or Hungry House This is a great opportunity as there is low running costs and little competition around. The café is in a walk-in trading position and would be a perfect opportunity for a first time buyer. Hilton Smythe highly advise early viewing to avoid disappointment.
