VIEWING STRICTLY BY APPOINTMENT ONLY
Hilton Smythe welcomes to the market Aldwinckles Coffee Shop. This is a well-established coffee shop that was originally established in 1984. Our client however has run the store since 2005. The owner has thoroughly enjoyed his time at the café, but is now looking to sell the business due to the desire to take a well-deserved retirement.
The coffee shop sells a range of locally sourced roasted coffees. They also specialise in lattes and leaf teas and have a great menu that offers lots of tasty meals, such as hot breakfasts, light snacks, scones and cakes. The business is very popular with the locals and is known for its great quality products. The shop offers a loyalty scheme to its customers which allows for repeat trade.
The business current generates an advised turnover of around £81,000 per annum with a gross profit of 71%. This is a healthy turnover that could be increased in several ways.
The coffee shop did have an alcohol licence which recently lapsed. By reapplying for the licence and introducing alcohol sales there could be a boost in custom. The business is also closed on Sundays which is a main trading day. Opening Sundays and later hours throughout the week maximises potential trade.
The coffee shop has an outstanding reputation for its homemade scones. They also have raving reviews on TripAdvisor from many happy customers. This is a great coffee shop for tourists, due to its location and fantastic menu.
The landlord will grant a new lease for 15 years.
Hilton Smythe highly advise early viewing to avoid disappointment.
