BUSINESS
Hilton Smythe is delighted to welcome to the market this popular café/restaurant business in Guyhirn, Wisbech, Cambridgeshire. The business was established in 1951 and has been in our clients careful hands since 2009.

The business is only now being offered to the market due to our clients` desire to take a well-deserved retirement. The business is open 7 days a week and generates a turnover in the region of £200,000 per annum with a gross profit of approximately 65%.

Chill Out is a successful and very profitable business with an excellent reputation and a vast loyal customer base. The business sees week long popular trade with regular excellent Sunday lunch trade. The café/restaurant has exceptional ratings and reviews on www.tripadvisor.co.uk.

A variety of food and drink options are offered by the café/restaurant including a range of snacks, ploughman's, sandwiches, baps, baguettes, jacket potatoes, omelettes, burgers, pizzas, Panini's, toasties, salads, a range of sides and starters/lite bites, main meals, homemade meals, vegetarian options, all day breakfast, breakfast baps, cereals, a range of desserts and hot and cold beverages.

The business has seen a consistent year on year growth, we feel the business could improve further by offering a delivery service to the local areas and possibly by applying for an alcohol licence to offer further variety to the beverages menu. Staffing numbers could also possibly be reduced to improve profits.

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