Description

A prominently situated ground and first floor cafe/licensed restaurant offering circa 100 covers over both floors. Situated in a highly sought after location in Preston city centre offering commercial, retail and residential surroundings. Internally offering a good standard of internal presentation throughout remaining largely neutral and could therefore be converted to most cuisine styles.

Location

Scrumptious is situated in what is possibly one of the most sought after locations within Preston city centre. Offering a very high footfall level with the envious commercial, retail and residential surroundings, this high profile trading position occupies a prominent site opposite the Harris Museum & Art Gallery and close proximity to St George’s shopping centre and the local market which is currently being upgraded by the council.

Internal Details

The public areas are situated over two floors comprising of the cafe on the ground floor with serving counter, drinks fridge with select of beverages and 52 covers, cooking equipment behind the service counters, a further well equipped trade kitchen to the rear of the building, office/dry store room and customer toilets. There is also a pavement licensed offering an additional 10 covers outside under a large awning.

On the first floor is a 48 cover licensed restaurant with a small bar area, well equipped trade kitchen to the rear of the building and customer toilets.

External Details

Outside seating to the front elevation.

The Opportunity

A new lease with negotiable terms on a prominent busy high street position. The owners are currently only trading out of the ground floor as a cafe, therefore a new operator could look to increase turnover and net profit trading across both floors.

With the premises license allowing trade until 11:30pm seven days a week, increasing the opening hours and trading in the evenings would also provide potential to increase turnover and profit.

Staff

The business is family run with the occasional assistance of part time staff as and when required.

Business Rates

The Rateable Value is £47,000 with effect from April 2010. Confirmation of actual business rates payable should be obtained from the local authority.

Regulatory

Premises licence.
