Hilton Smythe is delighted to welcome to the market this long established sandwich shop business in Pelton, Chester Le Street, County Durham.

The business was established in 1990 by our client and is only now being offered to the market due to our clients desire to take a well-deserved retirement. The business is open 6 days a week and generates a fantastic turnover in the region of 125,000 per annum with a gross profit of approximately 40%.

The Corner Cafe Weigh In (known locally as The Pork Shop) is a sandwich shop with an excellent reputation and vast loyal customer base. The shop is fitted and presented to a high standard and holds a superb 5* food hygiene rating. Outside catering is offered by the business.

The shop offers a range of different foods including a variety of different hot and cold sandwiches, bacon, sausage, hot meals, chips, full English breakfast, meats, pies, slices and a selection of hot and cold beverages.

We feel the business could improve its turnover by introducing deliveries to the local area and by possibly extending the opening hours. The business could also benefit from expanding the menu to offer more variety. In addition, there is also a large first floor flat ideal as either owners' accommodation or could be let to generate additional income. We are advised that our clients have recently had solar panels fitted to the roof of the property.

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