Whatever the time of year, there’s always a market for good cafés, coffee shops, and tea shops in British towns and cities. Today’s café is a very different proposition from the traditional model represented by the quaint, gingham-fringed establishment in a honeypot location in the heart of the Lake District. Thanks to the premiumisation of coffee, in particular, the market is much more diverse these days, despite the onslaught of the big chains.
Before you begin searching cafés for sale, it’s important to decide what kind of business you want to run. The term ‘café’ covers a huge range of establishments from a basic roadside-trailer tea-and-bacon-butty service to elegant cream teas served on the finest china – and everything in between. Some cafés serve a full lunch and dinner menu with alcohol, others stick to hot drinks and snacks. If you have a hankering to become a cool urban barista renowned for your house blend or the must-visit village destination for heavenly bakes, there’ll be business that’s just right for you.
To run any business, you should have bags of enthusiasm as well as the ability to handle the ups and downs of everyday trading. Being good with people is often the key to building a great business with lots of repeat custom. Taking the helm of your own successful business where you can set your own hours and craft your own menu are just a few of the many advantages of becoming a café owner.
Make sure you look carefully into the finances of any prospective business. While it’s fair to say that you’ll have new ideas which may bring business flooding in, you want to make sure you don’t pay over the odds for a business you’re planning to turn on its head. Look for a business that’s turning a good profit already but that has room for improvement with a few tweaks.
