Hilton Smythe welcomes to the market Sound Bites Cafe, For Sale due only to our client's emigration plans.
A fabulous waterside café catering for both on site operators, and visitors to the complex, business area, and yacht marina. Serving a great mix of light bites, teas & coffees, lunches, full breakfasts, sandwiches, jacket potatoes, and toasties, it has built up an enviable reputation, and offers free Wi-Fi.
Locally renowned with plenty of repeat clientele, the business benefits an amazing online presence and feedback, ranking 5 out of 5 on average for TripAdvisor with magnificent reviews. Much repeat custom, adds to a steady flow of visitors to the battery and adjacent businesses, some highly affluent yacht owners and operators.
Although a fairly fledgling operation, the business has increased quickly with much further organic growth available. Extending any opening hours, obtaining an A3 licence or similar opportunities exist, as well as the addition of a more formal website. The introduction of local delivery or sandwich rounds would also boost what is an already profitable turnover. Ideal for a hands-on husband wife team or partnership.
