Business History

Meridian Business Sales are delighted to offer to the market this well established and popular cafe, coffee shop and bar which has been in the careful hands of our client since 2007. It is now only being offered for sale due to our clients desire to pursue an overseas business opportunity. Since our client took over the business he has embarked on a full refurbishment program to all areas of the business culminating in a true walk-in and trade opportunity. Our client has continually developed and improved the business introducing new lines of income streams which has enhanced the business massively and in particular shows in the growth since 2007. Our client informs us that the annual turnover is currently £122,471 with a gross profit of £85,826 with still further growth potential. This is derived from the sale of tea and coffee plus a food menu of home cooked local produce to include specials on the day and a selection of sweets and the opening of the bar from 9am to 9pm. The business enjoys a strong reputation within the local community and as such has a high level of regular and repeat business. The prime location of the business would also lend itself to open in the evenings offering a bistro style menu plus the possible extra of offering B&B rooms as the area has a shortage of these facilities, thus would be a definite hit with the large numbers of tourists who visit the area on an all year round basis. Meridian Business Sales recommend early viewing on this business to fully appreciate the quality and scope for future growth.
