Tenure: Leasehold

Hilton Smythe is delighted to introduce to the market Lite Lunch. This thriving business was originally founded by our clients in May 2006 and have established an excellent reputation being very well supported by both residents and local businesses. The business reports a turnover in the region of £100,000 with gross profit at 60%.

The menu is varied and freshly prepared daily including breakfasts, sandwiches, Panini's, jacket potatoes, baguettes, salad boxes, pasta, wraps, toasties and daily specials. Additional revenue is generated through several contracts with local businesses for daily deliveries and catering.

Although hugely popular, we believe there is the scope to further the outside catering and delivery rounds within the area by a targeting marketing campaign. Additional revenue is derived from 2 vending machines placed in local factories with the potential to increase.

Although compact the sandwich bar is very well laid out with good décor and quality equipment. Lite Lunch has a 5 star food and hygiene rating and benefits from low overheads with a peppercorn rent.

This is a lovely well established business and early viewing is highly recommended.

The business is located in the large town of Skelmersdale in West Lancashire.

Lite Lunch operates from an end unit in a parade of ground floor shops. The area is a complementary blend of residential dwellings within a business area ensuring good footfall. The business benefits from being close to local schools in the original part of the town centre with ample shared parking to the frontage.
