The business is located within a parade of complimentary shops and businesses, therefore benefiting from a high volume of footfall and passing trade.

The property is situated within a densely populated residential area, from which the business derives much of its trade.

The area of the business is very well served by the public transport system, with several bus stops within easy walking distance of the property. The nearest railway station is Swinton railway station, which is approximately one mile away. The area is also well served by the A-roads, with the business being located on the busy A6, which links to the national A-road and motorway networks.

BUSINESS
Hilton Smythe is delighted to welcome to the market this well-established and popular café business, ideally located within the town of Swinton, Greater Manchester.

The old established business has been in our client's careful ownership since March 2015 and is only now being offered to the market due to our client's other business interests. The concern currently operates 7 days per week and generates a turnover in the region of £24,000 per annum, with a good gross profit, according to the 2016 accounts.

Our client offers a wide variety of fayre including full English breakfasts, a range of hot and cold sandwiches with a wide selection of fillings, burgers, chips and Paninis, to name a few, as well as a selection of hot and cold beverages.

The property offers a sizeable 92 square meters with a good size café area with 20 covers and a spacious service and serving area. To the rear of the property is a fabulous outside seating area with approximately 22 covers with patio heaters, which is ideal for summer parties. To the first floor of the premises is a one bedroom flat, which could be used as owners' accommodation or could be let out to generate further income.

The business has built up an enviable 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.

We feel there is scope to increase the turnover by extending the opening hours. A new owner could also embark on a modest marketing campaign to promote the goods offered or create a sandwich delivery service to the many businesses in the area. The business would also benefit from the launch of a website to advertise the business.

This is an excellent opportunity for a new owner to take this already busy business to the next level; therefore early viewing must come highly recommended to avoid disappointment.
