Sandwich Bar And Outside Catering In Fareham For Sale

Fareham, Hampshire
Asking Price:
Net Profit:


This is an established, professionally-run, profitable catering operation with several strands to its business. There is also scope for additional growth if the new owner wishes to pursue further opportunities.

Sandwich Bar
The health-conscious, discerning, professional clientele visiting this attractive, well-presented lunchtime food outlet, enjoy an extensive choice of salads, wraps, paninis baguettes and sandwiches in a tempting variety of bread types. There is also a choice of hot food options. Whilst most sales are take-away, the store does offer 44 covers in a spacious, contemporary environment where customers can choose from either take-away or sitting at tables.

Outside Catering
Corporate catering represents a significant percentage of the overall annual revenues enjoyed by the business. With a large, well-equipped, professional kitchen, spacious food prep areas and dry goods storage, volume repeat outside catering orders are undertaken with daily takings of £1,000 or more not uncommon. Deliveries are carried out via a fleet of refrigerated vans covering Havant, Portsmouth, Fareham, Southampton and surrounding areas. There are occasional week-end events, usually from established customers, on 15 or so weekends each year. The vendor does not target Weddings or Christenings but advises there are plenty of opportunities available to exploit if desired.

Lunch Box Deliveries
The business has several local companies who provide a delivered weekday lunch box service to their employees as a "perk". In total around 40 lunch box orders are received, prepared and delivered each day.

Local Individual Lunch deliveries
Currently restricted to the Business Park and a neighbouring industrial estate, lunch is delivered for individuals at selected business addresses. Lunch is ordered and paid for via an online ordering system. This is currently a small part of the business but has huge potential for growth as more and more employees become increasingly comfortable with ordering fresh food online.
