Hilton Smythe is delighted to welcome to the market this popular café and coffee shop business, ideally located in Brierley Hill, West Midlands.

The business was originally established in approximately 2010 and has been in our client's careful ownership since July 2015. Only now is the business being offered to the market due to our client's desire to other business commitments. The business operates 5 days per week and generates a turnover in the region of £110,000 per annum, with a good gross profit of 81% as of the 2015 accounts.

Our client offers a wide variety of fayre including breakfast sandwiches, burgers, hot and cold sandwiches with various fillings, jacket potatoes, salads and pasties, to name a few, as well as a selection of hot and cold beverages.

The business has benefited from considerable investment over the last three months, with a full refurbishment which includes new tables and chairs, new staff uniforms, all electrical equipment has been PAT tested, new fire safety equipment and all the refrigerators and freezers have been re-gassed.

The business has built up an excellent reputation within the area for the high quality of the goods and services 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 massive scope to increase the turnover by extending the opening hours during the weekdays and perhaps opening at weekends as the business is currently closed on Saturday and Sunday. A new owner could also develop the delivery side of the business by establishing delivery rounds, as we believe no-one is offering this facility within the area. The business would also benefit from a modest marketing campaign to promote the fayre and services offered.

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

Waterfront Food & Espresso Bar occupies substantial ground floor lock-up premises, ideally located in Brierley Hill, West Midlands. The business is situated within a parade of other complimentary shops and businesses. The business benefits from free on street parking to the front of the premises and enjoys a vast amount of footfall and passing trade, especially at lunchtime as the business is in close proximity to the college. We are advised that approximately 1,500 residents will be moving into new homes close to the business and there are many offices and businesses close by.
