Business History

Meridian Business Sales are delighted to offer to the market this well established and respected tearooms and confectioners. The business dates back 80 years as a chocolatiers, the tearooms was introduced 25 years ago and has been in the careful hands of our client for the last 3 years. This unique opportunity is being offered to the market due to personal reasons. Our client has gone to considerable expense and effort on the presentation of the property and is very generously including all fixtures and fittings within the sale price which is a huge plus for a new owner as additional funds will not need to be spent for some time. Our client inform us that the current annual turnover is 85,000 which is derived from the sale of chocolates and confectionary which equates to one third of the business turnover and the remaining two thirds comes from the tearooms and bistro. The business is owner operated and employs 1 full time and 1 part time members of staff. We believe that there is still huge potential to increase turnover by opening the bistro more evenings, doing more take-away food, Sunday lunches and by becoming licenced to serve alcohol. This is a superb opportunity and as such Meridian Business Sales recommends early viewing.
