Hilton Smythe is delighted to introduce to the market Something Else.
This multi facet business was originally established in the 1940’s, and was taken over by our client in 2005. Our clients run the store as a newsagents and café, this was then transformed into a café with some gift options and some extra newsagents services. Only now is the business being offered to the market due to our client's other business interests.
The café sells an excellent variety of foods and also stocks a range of giftware including brewed beers and locally distilled gins. The store has retained the newspaper and lottery trade from before the refurbishment, offering 3 delivery rounds per week. As well as this core business, they also make bespoke cakes to order for all occasions.
The business is extremely popular in the area, and has a fantastic amount of repeat trade from locals. The store has a seating area of which customers can sit and eat their hot or cold food.
The business has a vast range of high quality products and services on offer. This reflects in the turnover. We are advised the store is currently generating a healthy turnover of around £125,000 per annum, with a gross profit of approximately 35%.
We would highly advise the new owner to advertise the business more. The store has only recently received the refit and could benefit from social media sites such as Facebook and Twitter. The purchaser could also look at outside catering, this will complement the trade well.
We believe that offering a delivery for lunches to local businesses would generate an increase in revenue. There is a mass amount of potential for this business.
This is a great opportunity for a buyer looking for an already profitable business. The property also comes with a great sized owner’s accommodation, situated above the cafe. Hilton Smythe highly recommend an early viewing to avoid disappointment.
