The business was established in 2009 and has been in our clients careful hands since 2013. The business is only now being offered to the market due to our clients personal circumstances. The business is open 5 days a week and generates an excellent turnover in the region of £76,000 per annum with a gross profit of approximately 59%. Jack’s Sandwich Bar is a superb sandwich bar and cafe with a fantastic reputation and a vast local loyal clientele base.

The business has a Peugeot Expert catering van, 2006 registered, which is used for the businesses delivery round within the locality to companies in and around the dock areas, nearly all of which are regular sites. The catering van is very popular and we are advised the rounds could be extended further afield to increase income.

We feel the business could improve its turnover by embarking on a small advertising campaign and by possibly creating a Facebook page to interact with customers, receive reviews and to advertise new and existing foods. The sandwich bar would also benefit greatly from opening later and possibly in the evenings and weekends as a bistro. This is an excellent opportunity to own this delightful business, an early viewing must come highly recommended to avoid disappointment.
