Business Description
Veritas Business Sales are delighted to offer for sale 'Shakespaw the Midlands first Cat Café' located in central Stratford Upon Avon. This destination business has been trading for 18 months and unfortunately other pressing business ventures now force this reluctant sale. Shakespaw has a huge global following due to time and energy building the brand along with marketing the business on multi social platforms. Shakespaw has featured on TV, Radio and in Magazines on numerous occasions and is popular with Food and Cat Bloggers. The concept is Vintage and features a collection of pedigree and moggies that are named after Shakespeare characters. An adoption scheme is in place with Cats being rehomed ensuring new interest for returning customers. The Cat Cafe concept is still in its infancy and the market is loyal and growing. Currently the business has an average weekly turnover of circa £4,000 trading 6 days with £1000 - £1500 per week through pre bookings via the online booking system. This business has huge scope to double the turnover through 7 day trading, opening in the evenings, increased merchandise offer, online shop, workshops and events. The business is currently run by a team of 2.5 full time staff with additional weekend team and volunteers. There is also scope to increase profitability with an owner operated model. Shakespaw currently specialise in Vintage High Teas and Cocktails. Operating over three floors, you have a ground floor café and preparation area and there is a second cafe area in a quirky vaulted cellar ideal for separate parties. On the first floor is fully fitted commercial kitchen.
