LOCATION: The premises are prominently located on popular and busy Roman Road in Bow, London within walking distance to Roman Road Market & 5 minutes away from Iceland, Tesco Metro, Poundland & other retailers. The nearest stations are Mile End, Bow Road & Bow Church.

BUSINESS: The business was established in 2005 and has been in our client's careful ownership since 2008. Only now is the business being offered to the market due to our client's desire to concentrate on other business interests. The business has built up an enviable reputation within the area for the very high quality of the goods and services offered, which has resulted in a very loyal client base, with a very high volume of repeat trade and word of mouth recommendations.


DESCRIPTION: Our client offers a wide variety of food including full English and Italian style breakfasts, salads, pasta, various Italian dishes and hot and cold sandwiches, to name a few, as well as a variety of hot and cold beverages. Our client also offers a delivery service, which has proved very popular and outside catering, which includes three contracts with local authorities. The property boasts approximately 87½ square meters of floor space, incorporating a spacious service area with approximately 30 covers and a commercial kitchen, Main café area with 11 tables and 30 chairs, main serve over counter, display refrigerator, delicatessen refrigerator, drinks refrigerator, Coca Cola branded refrigerator (free loan from coca Cola), 2 x under counter freezers, under counter refrigerator, 2 x panini presses, under counter glass washer, 3 x microwave ovens, 2 x group arm coffee machines and grinders, 6 x CCTV system, air conditioning unit, commercial refrigerator, freezer, griddle, fan oven, dairy refrigerator, 3 x large freezers, 2 x chest freezers, glass fronted refrigerator, 2 x store rooms, Gents WC & Ladies/disabled WC.


SCOPE: We feel there is scope to increase the turnover by extending the opening hours, perhaps by opening in the evenings as a bistro or offering Sunday trading. A new owner could also embark on a modest marketing campaign to promote the food and services offered. The coffee shop already has a website in place, which offers online ordering facilities.
