Hilton Smythe is delighted to welcome to the market this well-established and popular tea room/café business, which is ideally located within Elland town centre, West Yorkshire. The business was established by our client in 2010 and is only now being offered to the market due to our client’s desire to concentrate on other business interests. The business currently operates 6 days per week and generates a turnover in the region of £36,000 per annum, with a gross profit of approximately 59% as of the 2016 accounts. Our client offers a wide variety of fayre and services including baguettes, Paninis, salads, jacket potatoes, hot and cold sandwiches and hot meals to name a few, as well as a good selection of hot and cold beverages. The premises boasts a spacious tea room to the ground floor with approximately 18 covers and a rear fully equipped commercial kitchen to the rear. The first floor offers a large function room, which is currently used for parties, but has the potential for 20 covers as an overspill for the tea room. The second floor is currently used for storage purposes. The business has built up an enviable reputation within the area for the very 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 there is scope to increase the turnover by extending the opening hours, perhaps by offering Sunday trading. A new owner could also embark on a modest marketing campaign to promote the goods and service offered. There is already has a very informative website in place to advertise the business at www.lippyliciouscakes.co.uk. This is an excellent opportunity for a new owner to acquire a very busy tea room and catering business; therefore early viewing must come highly recommended to avoid disappointment.
The business is owner run and managed with 5 x part time staff members.
The business is open: Monday – Friday: 9.30am – 3.00pmSaturday: 9.30am – 2.00pmSunday: Closed
