Leasehold Artisan Ice Cream & Dessert Parlour located on The Isle of Wight. Freehold Option Available (125 year lease from 2015). Beach front location. Award winning franchise.
Veritas Business Sales are delighted to offer for sale this outstanding Ice Cream & Dessert Parlour franchise which is located on the Isle of Wight. The business was established by our clients back in July 2019 and is now being offered for sale due to the owners being located in The Midlands and travelling is taking its toll.
Since ownership they have completely renovated, refurbished and invested in new equipment along with fixtures & fittings which are mostly bought and paid for and included within the sale price which is a huge plus for any new purchaser as additional funds will not need to be spent for some time. The Little Dessert Shop is overseen by the owners but when open is operated by a team of part time staff. We are not selling the business with any accounting information as such, just the assets/fixtures & fittings. If you do not wish to carry on with the franchise you can rebrand and be independent. They serve a fine range of waffles, crepes, pancakes, cookie dough, sundaes, verrines, ice creams, galetos, cheesecakes, bakes, patisserie, cakes, shakes, specialist teas & coffees and cold drinks. All products are prepared on site using high quality produce and can be enjoyed in the inviting and newly refurbished restaurant or can be taken away.
We believe that the business would benefit from a husband & wife combination who ideally would live on the island. There is potential for outside seating subject to agreement with the local council. It would be fair to say that to set up one of these franchises from scratch up it would cost circa £200,000. The business has built a strong reputation within the local community and beyond and as such has a high level of regular and repeat trade along with plenty of new visiting tourists. This is a superb opportunity to purchase a ready made and newly fitted business where all the hard work has been done which is a great base to build upon and as such early viewing is highly recommended.
