Full description

Tenure: Leasehold

This is a rare and exciting opportunity to purchase a charming high class licensed coffee shop and bistro, which is situated within the delightful historical city of Chester.

Ella's occupies a prime trading position at the heart of the city amongst an abundance of retail outlets, estate agents and professional organisations ensuring the area is a hive of activity throughout the day, with high levels of footfall from the vast numbers of shoppers, workers and tourists who frequent the city on a daily basis.

Since trading commenced, Ella's has quickly established a truly enviable reputation for offering a warm and friendly welcome, serving a quality fresh home cooked cuisine within a relaxed, contemporary setting. The business boasts an extensive and loyal customer base with excellent TripAdvisor reviews and frequent recommendations.

Ella's operates from a highly visible and imposing double fronted premises, providing a deceptively spacious and versatile ground floor business accommodation, which is immaculately appointed throughout with tasteful, attractive décor and quality furniture.

Ella's is a thriving and highly lucrative business, yet predominantly operates during the day time and evenings on Friday and Saturday and therefore offers fantastic scope for growth and improvement. With this in mind, the business therefore represents a terrific opportunity for an ambitious and enthusiastic hands on operative/family unit, who can continue to drive the business forward and exploit the true potential with the opportunity to introduce outside catering and or a take away service.

These enhancements will naturally increase the already impressive weekly sales, whilst ultimately enhancing the overall profitability of the business.

To fully appreciate this first class opportunity, a viewing is highly recommended.

Currently shop sales average £4,000 approximately.

Current records and accounts can be inspected when viewing.
