We are a small, independent coffee shop located on the high street of a small market town on the outskirts of the Cotswolds, with direct rail services to London and good bus services to the surrounding villages. An ideal business for anyone looking for a change of lifestyle, this friendly community hub can be run easily by a couple without the need for staff.
Known for our relaxed atmosphere and inclusive approach, we are often a meeting point for community groups and charities. A supporter of many good local causes, we have also established a collection point for food banks in town. We are set apart from our main competition, which is in a different part of town and are ideally placed to be visible to through traffic.
A high percentage of our business is from regular customers, which gives a very stable base which can be built upon if required. We currently operate over five days, Tuesday to Saturday, from 9am to 4pm. The menu is simple but varied, with a good selection of home made cakes and made to order hot and cold sandwiches and soups and salads according to the season. Take away business is at a very healthy level and has continued to grow over the last couple of years.
Split into two rooms, we have a mix of low and table seating, with a capacity of 22 to 24. Outdoors, pavement tables and a rear courtyard allow for at least 12 additional covers. Recently decorated throughout, the style is informal and uncluttered and attracts older and younger customers alike. There is potential to increase the current turnover by extending opening hours, obtaining an alcohol licence and offering a delivery service. We do hold privatised events in the evenings from time to time; this could be built upon to further improve income. We have active social media accounts and good reviews on Google and TripAdvisor. Our 5/5 food standards rating has been re-awarded as of February 2022.
The nature of our operation means that during the Covid restrictions we were able to adapt to allow us to continue to trade throughout. As a result the take away business developed considerably and has continued to be very successful. The business is currently extremely healthy and stable and takings are now higher than pre-Covid levels over a shorter working week! Our net profit stands at over 50% thanks to having streamlined the outgoings where possible. We are looking to sell quite simply because personal circumstances have changed and a new project is waiting!
