Hilton Smythe welcomes to the market Sykes Coffee Bar. This business was first established in 2011 and was taken over by our client in 2012. The owner is now looking to sell the business, due to the desire to focus on other interests.

This is a popular coffee shop in a great trading location. The shop offers an excellent variety of high quality coffees, milkshakes and quick snacks. Fayre includes paninis, sandwiches, soups, breakfasts, homemade cakes and ice creams. This is a popular menu that receives a generous amount of repeat loyal trade.

The business is generating an advised turnover of around £78,000 as of the 2015 accounts, with a gross profit of 65%. This is a healthy turnover; however, we feel this could be increased. The new owner could consider offering an outside catering business. This could be a great asset to the business. We are advised that the shop is currently closed due to ill health.

Sykes could be advertised more by introducing a business website, this could be beneficial to promote the outside catering service. Social media is also a great cost effective way of advertising a business. A Facebook page could highly benefit the coffee shop.

Over the years the business has gained an excellent reputation within the area, this shows on TripAdvisor. There are some excellent reviews on the site from some very happy customers.

This is a fantastic opportunity that is not to be missed. Our client would be willing to offer a hand over period to the purchaser, to allow for a smooth transaction period. Hilton Smythe highly advise early viewing to take in the full potential of the trade.
