Tenure: Freehold

THE PREMISES Church Cottage was purchased by the current owner some years ago and he has converted the building to the wonderful business that now exists. Our client has a passion for organic produce and a buyer is now sought to have the same passion and to take on this business as the current owner is looking to retire.

The building since being purchased in around 2008/09 has been extended and improved with a great eye for detail.

A great deal of money has been spent to create a business that once was an organic shop that has now been expanded into a cafe and bistro.

At the time of inspection the current owner was improving the kitchen to allow for the new chef to cook with gas - this has meant the whole kitchen being removed and gas pipes run in and new equipment installed.

The Organic Shop, Cafe and Bistro offers a rare opportunity to have a business with living accommodation. This would allow an owner to either live on site or have a staff flat.

The location - a short distance from Bury St Edmunds is ideal for a Bistro and shop and the road on which it is on is a busy thoroughfare with plenty of passing trade.

Since the shop has been created there are many regular customers and it is thought that a delivery service could be created and a cooked food delivery service may also be a possibility.

The current owner is looking to retire but has asked us to identify discerning buyers who are willing to take the business over and to acquire the freehold building, fixtures and fittings to be valued at the point of sale and the existing staff - although the staff liability is negligible. The fixtures, fittings and stock are currently estimated to be around £190,000.
