LOCATION
Food For Thought is located in Warrington, Cheshire.

The business is located on a main road, which runs straight through to the m6 and the busy A580. The cafe serves the local towns of Golborne and Lowton. The business is situated on a large residential housing estate with several independent businesses.

There is excellent off road car parking to the front of the business, making it an ideal stop off for local tradesmen wanting to buy lunch and breakfasts. There is a main bus route past the shop and the local secondary school is within walking distance, to which the current vendor has a huge amount of footfall from i.e. before and after school.

BUSINESS
Hilton Smythe welcomes to the market Food For Thought. The business was originally established by our client in 2014, but is now looking to sell the business.

The café runs as an eat-in or takeaway selling hot and cold food. They serve home cooked food daily which is prepared on site. There is a great menu available with great tasty meals such as hot breakfasts, soups, sandwiches, toasties, jacket potatoes and salads. They also offer specials such as chilli and rice, meatballs, cottage pies, curries and more. Food for Thought also caters for funerals, weddings and birthdays throughout the week and this helps boost the already brilliant turnover.

The business is currently turnover over a figure of £43,400 per annum, as of the 2015 accounts. However, we do feel that the new owner could look to open later in to the evening or open Sundays, in order to boost potential trade. The business does have a licence so this would be possible. The café currently delivers to local residents and businesses.

The business has an excellent reputation in the area for its exceptional homemade food and great service. The café sees many loyal customers and so a loyalty scheme could benefit the business.

Above the store there is a two bedroomed flat which is currently let out for £485 per month. This is a great extra income.

This is an exceptional business run to a high standard by our client. We highly advise early viewing to any interested buyer.
