Hilton Smythe are delighted to offer to the market one of Hoxton’s much loved cafe and sandwich bar businesses, established in the area in 2006 and purchased by our client in 2014.
Our client invested over £130,000 into the business including a recent £50,000 refurbishment of the entire cafe which included new equipment and extraction facilities.
Our client is reluctantly selling due to ill health and therefore looking for the right buyer to proceed quickly.
The business concentrates on the morning and lunchtime trade only, there is no deliveries at present however our client is about to add Just Eat, Deliveroo and Uber orders which following the trend of similar businesses in the area should easily add a further 40% to weekly turnover levels.
Any new owner who simply extends the current opening hours could also benefit from a very quick increase of 20% to current turnover levels, making this opportunity very desirable.
The café attracts staff from the hospital, teachers from the primary school and local business people including regulars.
Currently our vendor offers both a traditional English menu of breakfasts, chicken and meat wraps, sandwiches, panini’s, omelettes, fish dishes, jacket potatoes, daily specials such as lasagne, cold drinks and bean to cup coffees as well as traditional Turkish meals, pastries and desserts.
Any new owner could continue with the menu in place or choose to add their own style of menu including adding an alcohol licence to boost drink sales.
A full business handover will be offered.
