Tenure: Leasehold

Napoleon café occupies substantial premises, ideally located within the bus station at the Kingfisher Shopping Centre in Redditch, Worcestershire. The business benefits from a very high volume of footfall and passing trade, with no other competition within the area. The Kingfisher Shopping Centre was opened in 1976 by the them Prime Minister James Callaghan, and now forms part of the town's primary retail centre.

Redditch is a town in north-east Worcestershire. According to the 2011 census, the town had a residential population of 84,300. The award-winning Arrow Valley Country Park and sailing lake can be found just a short distance from the town centre. The town is surrounded by pleasant countryside and places of great historic interest, such as Stratford-upon-Avon and Shakespeare's birthplace. Redditch is home to several engineering and automotive companies including Halfords.

The area of the business is extremely well served by the public transport system. Redditch railway station is just a two minute' walk away. The area is also well served by the A-roads, with the A441 being within easy driving distance, which links to the national A-road and motorway networks. Worcester is approximately 22 miles away and Kidderminster is 16½ miles away.

Hilton Smythe is delighted to welcome to the market this well-established and very busy café business, which is ideally located in the bus station at the Kingfisher Shopping Centre, Redditch.

The business was established approximately 20 years ago and has been in our client's careful ownership since 2011. Only now is the business, reluctantly, being offered to the market due to our client's desire to concentrate on other business interests. The café operates 6 days per week and generates a turnover in the region of £70,000 per annum, with a good gross profit.

Our client offers a wide variety of fayre including all day breakfasts, light bites, hot and cold sandwiches, baguettes, salads, jacket potatoes, burgers, Paninis and a children's menu, as well as a selection of hot and cold beverages. The property boasts approximately 43 sq. metres of floor space with 10 internal covers and a secure seating area opposite with 40 covers.

The business has built up an excellent reputation within the area for the very high quality of the food 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 scope to increase the turnover by extending the opening hours, perhaps opening later during the week to catch the early evening trade. A new owner could also embark on a modest marketing campaign to highlight the fayre offered.

This is an excellent opportunity for a new owner, perhaps a husband and wife team or partnership, to take this already thriving and busy business to the next level; therefore, early viewing must come highly recommended to avoid disappointment.
