Selling a tea room

Selling a café, coffee shop or tea room can be a complex process, and without the right help it can take a long time to find a suitable buyer.

Do you need a fresh and friendly business broker, who will explain everything you need to know without the legal jargon? Look no further than the Hilton Smythe team, we’re ready and waiting to assist in selling your café, coffee shop or tea room.

Deciding to sell up

Selling your small business, which you’ve built from the ground up, is one of the most important decisions you’ll ever make. You might be in a position where you need to sell, for example due to ill health or if your personal circumstances change. Otherwise, you’ll need to think carefully whether this is the ideal time to sell your café, tea room or coffee shop.

If you know it’s time to hang up your apron and find a new owner, then you’re in the right place. With café culture on the up in the UK, it’s the perfect time to sell and make sure you get a good price for your business. With Brits drinking 55 million cups of coffee and 165 million cups of tea on a daily basis, owning a coffee shop or tea room could be an ideal investment.

Professional support and advice

Selling a small business is very difficult without professional help and support. Having experts on hand during the selling process is absolutely essential. A good broker can see the business from a buyer’s point of view, and help you get the most possible value out of the sale.

The Hilton Smythe team are not only business experts, but they are also friendly and approachable. We offer simple and honest advice at every stage of the selling process, so you can ask all the questions you need to. It’s important to feel comfortable with your broker, as you’ll likely be working closely together for a few months at least. We’ll make sure we provide the best advice so you sell your café for the right price.
