REF 6600 – Leasehold Cocktail Bar & Global Beer Specialist
Blacks Brokers are pleased to bring to the market this leasehold cocktail bar and global beer specialist located within Stoke-on-Trent.
The business has been trading from its current location since 2016. Our client established the business to meet local demand for a cocktail bar and beer specialist in this area of the town centre. The business has become well known, gaining a large customer base and a superb reputation. There are a number of excellent online reviews noted on Trip Advisor, Facebook and Google.
This area is mainly commercial with other businesses including large multiples such as The Halifax, Aldi, Subway, Boots and many more. The area is well linked by the M6 and A523 with excellent public transport links in place and parking is available in the immediate vicinity.
Reason for sale
The business would be ideally suited to a hands-on owner-operator but is currently operated by staff only due to the demands of our client's other business interests being higher than anticipated. Therefore, the business is offered for sale and presents an excellent opportunity for a new owner-operator or team to take the business to the next level.
The building is available on a competitive rent on a Full Repair & Insure lease (FRI lease). This is the most common form of commercial lease. A new lease is negotiable with the landlord with a negotiable length, and the first 3 months would be rent free. The rent is £192 per week.
The business is currently operating with two full time and four part time members of staff in place. This includes a manager working on a full time basis. Our client is not involved in the day to day running of this business.
The business has operated well during its first two years of trade. The accounts for year ending 2018 show annual turnover of £133,229 with a gross profit of £72,866. The net profit is lower than it could be under new ownership due to reinvestments, and the owners working full time elsewhere however it does still make a reasonable profit, and is on track to at least equal that for the 2019 year end if not exceed it. Full financial details are available upon viewing.
The business currently benefits from Small Business Rates Relief. Purchasers should enquire with relevant local authorities to confirm the rates payable. Please note, there is also a service charge of £600 per annum payable to The Smithfield Centre.
This leasehold business occupies an enviable trading position in a busy shopping centre. It has a superb reputation and large customer base. There is plenty of scope to develop the business further with the introduction of longer opening hours and additional use of the first floor to allow the business to develop a food menu. This proposition would ideally suit an owner operating team who could push the business forward and build upon the solid and impressive trading foundations. Early viewings are strongly advised.
