THE BUSINESS
Our vendor clients, in situ for the past 13 years have operated this excellent business on a 'full time' and a 'hands-off' basis respectively with the assistance of 2 full time and 9 part time/casual staff. We are advised the trade is currently derived from approx 65% wet sales and 35% food sales, thereby providing massive scope for a new hands-on owner operator partnership with previous experience of running a food orientated venue to take this business to the next level by exploiting the immense food potential that is to be found here.
This is an outstanding opportunity for those seeking a lifestyle change or an alternative career from the stress and strife of the City or even as an additional income stream whilst commuting.
Our vendor clients have established an excellent reputation which can be fully emulated and enhanced upon by new enthusiastic operators.
Advised current sales are circa 520,000 (incl. VAT). This delightful inn is a well-established and successful business and in our opinion with the above areas of potential we would quite easily expect a fully focussed and fully committed operator to achieve a turnover well in excess of 600,000 (incl. VAT).
Accounting information will be made available to interested parties after viewing.
