Well Established Cafe & Gallery For Sale
Please quote reference B06446
Hilton Smythe is delighted to welcome to the market a well established Leasehold café with an arts and crafts gallery.
Cloudhouse Café & Gallery has been under the careful and meticulous ownership of our client for a number of years and has only now been introduced to the market for sale as our client wishes to take well-earned retirement.
The business offers quality fayre in a pleasant and relaxed setting with the focus on arts and crafts, with the cafe supporting local artists and displays prints, originals, pottery, jewellery, handmade cards, wooden items including bird houses and boxes that make excellent tourist gifts.
The café has the ability to cater for 35 covers, with an upstairs area which seats 8 with a further 4 covers outside under the canopy area and is a real social hub within the community with many local groups using the facility on a regular basis. It must also be noted that current turnover is generated on limited trading hours over 4 days a week, leaving a new owner with plenty of scope to increase trading options
We feel there is scope to increase the turnover perhaps with a new owner embarking on a modest marketing campaign to highlight the excellent produce offered. The business already has an informative website in place to promote the business that could be further promoted along with the use of social media platforms, along with offering an outside catering service for private events to help increase the turnover for the business.
