Hilton Smythe is delighted to welcome to the market this well-established and busy coffee shop in Kettering, Northamptonshire.

The business was established in 2001 and has been in our client's careful ownership since 2009. Only now is the business being offered to the market due to our client's desire for semi-retirement. The business operates 6 days per week and generates a turnover in the region of 61,000 per annum, with a gross profit of approximately 51%.

Our client offers a variety of fayre including hot and cold sandwiches, baguettes, Panini's and baked potatoes with various fillings, as well as a large selection of hot and cold beverages. The coffee shop has built up an enviable reputation within the area for the high quality of the goods 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 highlight the food and service offered. The business could also launch a website for the coffee shop.

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.

The Coffee Place occupies substantial ground floor premises, ideally located within the centre of the town of Kettering, Northamptonshire. The business is situated within a parade of complimentary shops and businesses and benefits from a high volume of footfall and passing trade. The coffee shop further benefits from good car parking facilities within the area, with a public car park to the rear of the property.

Kettering is a town in Northamptonshire and is mainly situated on the west side of the River Ise, a tributary of the River Nene, which meets at Wellingborough. According to the 2001 census, the town had a residential population of 51.063. Kettering is a popular place in which to live and work, due to its fast InterCity trains into London St Pancras, which takes approximately 1 hour.
