LOCATION
Café 21 occupies substantial two storey premises, ideally located within the popular seaside resort of Blackpool in Lancashire. The business is surrounded by a wealth of complimentary shops and businesses, as well as densely populated residential areas, from which the business derives much of its trade. Being located on the busy Common Edge Road, the café benefits from a very high volume of footfall and passing trade, as well as good car parking facilities within the area.

Blackpool is Britain's most loved holiday destination, due to the huge range of attractions, which are available all year round, as well as the new seafront, world class events and spectacular lighting shows. The town is well known for the famous Blackpool Tower, which soars 158 metres above the town.

The area of the business is well served by the public transport system, with several bus stops within easy walking distance of the property. The nearest railway station is Squires Gate, which is approximately 1½ miles away. The area is also well served by the A-roads, with the A5230 being within easy driving distance, which links to the national A-road and motorway networks. Lytham St Annes is approximately 3 miles away and Fleetwood is 10½ miles away.

BUSINESS
Hilton Smythe is delighted to welcome to the market this well-established and very busy café business, which is ideally located within the lively town of Blackpool, Lancashire.

The business was established by our clients in 2012 and is only now being offered to the market due to our clients' other business interests. The café operates 6 days per week and generates a turnover in the region of £55,000 per annum, with a gross profit of approximately 51%.

Our clients offer a wide variety of fayre, to eat in or take away, including all day breakfasts, breakfast sandwiches, wraps, muffins, hot and cold sandwiches, with a variety of fillings, toasties, Panini's, salad boxes and jacket potatoes, to name a few, as well as a selection of hot and cold beverages.

The property boasts approximately 69 sq. metres, is very well maintained and fitted out to suit the trade. The main service area offers comfortable seating for 20 covers, with a galley style kitchen to the rear. To the first floor is a one-bedroom flat, which could be used as owners' accommodation or let out to generate further income.

The business has built up an excellent reputation within the area for the high quality and freshness of the food available, 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, perhaps by opening longer during the week to catch the early evening crowds, or offering Sunday trading. A new owner could also embark on a modest marketing campaign to highlight the excellent food and service offered.

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