Full description

Eilean Dubh Cafe & Delicatessen is located on the High Street in the highly attractive coastal town of Nairn. The premise is presented to the market in excellent condition. This newly formed business is generating sound income. The business is operated under partial management and has provided the owners with a good income stream. However it is their desire to focus on their other business interests that brings this excellent trading prospect to the market.

This Cafe & Delicatessen would ideally suit an 'owner operator' or someone looking for an investment business model. New owners could capitalise upon the existing trade but could equally develop the business further. The business sells a wide range of excellent cooked meats, cheeses, savouries, etc. with a number of products being specially prepared on the premises. The business currently generates a good level of turnover but the vendor believes that the business could operate to a higher level with new motivated owners having a greater hands-on role. The business operates year-round. The location of the Shop attracts mainly local business but it also capitalises on the business that tourism and the service sector brings to the town. The shop has good signage and therefore attracts passing trade. The building is separated into the customer facing servery with customer seating and spacious preparation rooms to the rear. There is also excellent controlled temperature (walk-in freezer and refrigeration units) and ambient storage. The sale of this attractive cafe offers new proprietors the opportunity to own a retail outlet which has a strong trading brand with further business development potential.

Nairn is an attractive, residential seaside town with a population of over 11,000. With its stunning 'blue flag' beaches and two challenging championship golf courses the town has a large influx of visitors throughout the year. Nairn boasts extensive facilities; an excellent indoor swimming complex, a sports centre and a full array of social and welfare facilities. The Moray Firth is renowned for its aquatic life, especially its dolphin population which can be observed from commercial boat trips. Nairn is in easy reach of a wide range of visitor attractions such as Distilleries, Cawdor Castle and Culloden Battlefield. Nairn also attracts a significant number of visitors to its Highland Games and Farmers Show in the summer months.

The property is constructed of stone and extends over the ground floor. The property above is residential use and is not part of the sale. The internal layout of the property is in two main aspects; the sales area and the production area. The shop sales area is accessed via a single glazed door from the High Street with the main service counter to the left upon entering. This leads into the customer seating area that accommodates 60 covers. Staff can access the property from a side door that leads to service areas to the rear production area. The food preparation rooms benefit from an open plan configuration allowing for the smooth processing of products. Additional work areas include a staff washroom, customer washroom and general storage rooms. Throughout there are ample work stations and the business is well provided for in terms of trade equipment.

The property benefits from mains electricity, water and drainage.

Business Development
The wide range of commercial catering equipment and flexible trading areas makes this business an excellent prospect for a food production unit or for someone wishing to develop an outside catering business. The large walk-in freezer and refrigeration units would ideally support a greater food production output.

Full trading figures will be provided post viewing.
