Hilton Smythe is delighted to welcome to the market this very popular and busy café business in the town of Scarborough, North Yorkshire. The business was originally established in the 1950’s and has been in our client’s careful ownership since 1990. Only now is the business being offered to the market due to our client’s desire for a well-deserved retirement. The business currently operates 7 days per week and generates a turnover in the region of £120,000 per annum, with a gross profit of approximately 73%. Our client offers a wide variety of fayre including Full English Breakfasts, burgers, roast dinners, fish & chips, hot & cold sandwiches, with a variety of fillings and hot meals, all of which are freshly prepared, as well as a wide selection of hot and cold beverages. The property boasts a total floor area of 138 square metres, which includes an open plan café area with up to 65 covers, a fully equipped kitchen and a service area. The business has built up an enviable reputation within the area for the high quality of the food and service offered, which has resulted in a very loyal client base, with a high volume of repeat trade and word of mouth recommendations. We feel there is scope to increase the turnover by extending the opening hours, perhaps by opening later in the evenings. A new owner could also embark on a modest marketing campaign to promote the goods and service offered. We also feel the café would benefit from the launch of a website to advertise the business. The café already has a presence on the social media website Facebook, where customers have left excellent reviews. This is an excellent opportunity for a new owner, perhaps a husband and wife team or partnership, to take this already thriving café business to the next level; therefore early viewing must come highly recommended to avoid disappointment.
The business is owner run and managed with 1 x full time and 3 x part time staff members.
The business is open: Monday – Saturday: 8.30am – 5.00pmSunday: 9.00am – 4.00pm
