Full description

Hilton Smythe is delighted to welcome to the market this well-established and very busy café business, which is ideally located within a very busy shopping centre in Newcastle-under-Lyme.

The business was originally established in 1975 and has been in our client’s careful ownership since 2005. The business currently operates 6 days per week and generated a turnover in the region of £108,000 as of the 2017 accounts, with a gross profit of 77%.

Our client offers a wide variety of fayre including breakfasts, hot and cold meals, snacks and cakes, as well as a variety of hot and cold beverages. The café boasts a large open plan service area with 63 covers.

The business has built up an excellent reputation within the town, which has resulted in a very loyal client base, with a high volume of repeat trade and word of mouth recommendations.

We feel there is scope to increase the turnover by opening the business on Sunday, as the shopping centre opens between 10.00am and 4.00pm. A new owner could also embark on a modest marketing campaign to highlight the excellent fayre offered.

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

Frankie’s Café is situated within the very popular Roebuck Shopping Centre within the market town of Newcastle-upon-Lyme, Staffordshire. The café is surrounded by many popular high street stores and businesses, directly opposite Next and Argos, with many others within view such as Iceland, Lloyds bank, Boots etc. therefore, the café benefits from a very high volume of footfall.

Newcastle-under-Lyme is a very popular market town in North Staffordshire. According to the 2011 census, the town had a residential population of 75,125. The popular market is open 6 days per week and offers over 80 stalls.
