Superb Coffee Shop for sale in Dartford, Gravesend & Surrounding
Dartford, Gravesend & Surrounding, Kent
Business overview-- PRICE REDUCED -- Coffee shop located in busy shopping centre. Low rent, includes all catering equipment. Please note, not currently being run full time / to full potential hence turnover.
A great opportunity to acquire a ready-to-go coffee shop and build on existing business. Located in a busy shopping centre in Dartford, Kent, the rent is low and includes all your power, electric, water, security, etc. The sale price includes all the equipment you need, including a top of the range Rancilio coffee machine, cost £15,000 new 4 years ago, freezer, oven, microwave, drinks fridge, panini press, all docs and branding you would need to start trading immediately.
The business benefits from a great location and visibility as it sits beside large retailers and opposite the main lifts and car park ticket machine. Footfall at the shopping centre for the 1st quarter of 2018 was 1,254,401.
The drinks and snacks are all profitable but there is a definite gap in the market here for fresh deli, such as sandwiches and wraps, crepes, etc. So there's an opportunity for a new owner to boost earnings. What the business needs is for an owner to expand on an organised food offering and create a really good display or deli (as I had wanted to) so there is lots of potential for more income with the right commitment and products.
Your market would be local shoppers, residents and passing commuters. There are several estate agents, recruitment consultants, other office and council staff working close by who also spend money on coffee and lunch items. When trading I am able to run the business on my own but I would recommend that you could build on lunchtime sales with two people over the busy midday period.
I have recently invested money refurbishing the business, which includes an open bar design and seating. Sadly due to a setback in my partner's health and increasing commitments, I have to put the business up for sale. As a result I have not been able to run the business to its full potential, often having to close certain days or leaving early. I am more than willing to help a new owner with a handover period and offer and advice to expand the business.
