Tenure: Leasehold

Café Nosh occupies substantial ground floor premises, ideally located within the town of Poole in Dorset. The business is surrounded by a wealth of complimentary shops and business on the very busy Sea View Road, therefore benefiting from a very high volume of footfall and passing trade. The business further benefits from car parking facilities to the front of the premises.

Poole is a large coastal town and seaport in the county of Dorset, on the south coast of England. It is a popular tourist resort, attracting visitors with its large natural harbour, history, the Lighthouse arts centre and Blue Flag beaches. According to the mid-2014 estimate, the town had a residential population of 147,645.

The area of the business is well served by the public transport system, with several bus stops within easy walking distance of the property. Poole railway station is approximately 2 miles away. The area is also well served by the A-roads, with the A3049 being within easy driving distance of the property, which links to the national A-road and motorway networks. Poole town centre is 2 miles away and Bournemouth is 4 miles away.

Hilton Smythe is delighted to welcome to the market this well-established and popular café business, which is ideally located within Poole, Dorset.

The business was originally established in 2002 and has been in our client's careful ownership since 2007. Only now is the business being offered to the market due to our client's desire for a well-deserved retirement. The business currently operates 5 days per week and generates a turnover in the region of £46,500 per annum, with a gross profit of approximately 67%.

Our client offers a wide variety of fayre including breakfasts, hot and cold sandwiches, jacket potatoes, salads and hot meals, to name a few, as well as a selection of hot and cold beverages. The property boasts over 75 sq. metres of floor space, is very well maintained and decorated to a high standard.

The business has built up an excellent reputation within the area for the high quality of the food and service offered, which has resulted in a very loyal client base, with a high volume of repeat trade and word of mouth recommendations. The business also has excellent reviews on the popular travel website Trip Advisor.

We feel there is scope to increase the turnover by extending the opening hours, as the business is currently run at a pace to suit our client. A new owner could also embark on a modest marketing campaign to highlight the food and service offered.

This is an excellent opportunity for a new owner, perhaps a husband and wife team or partnership, to take this already popular business to the next level: therefore, early viewing must come highly recommended to avoid disappointment.
