COFFEE SHOP AND CAFE in Rochester for Sale. A quaint artisan coffee shop selling quality coffee prepared by professional baristas, a large range of teas, cold drinks and freshly prepared milkshakes and smoothies, and a short menu of light lunches, quality cakes and sweet treats. A 5-year established business with a low monthly rental of £1,300 per month (including VAT), and a 100% business rate rebate for our client. The business was established in 2017 and is now reluctantly being offered for sale for the owner to concentrate on other business interests. Weekly Turnover £2,500 to £3,000. Since opening, the property has been completely re-wired, the majority of the plumbing has been replaced, with a new toilet and sink fitted, regularly redecorated and continually investing in new equipment along with fixtures and fittings which are all bought and paid for, and included within the sale price. The owner is currently refurbishing the lounge area with the intention of creating a bistro within the next couple of months. All the furniture is of a high quality, with several of the tables in the upstairs lounge being a bespoke purchase to fit neatly within the shop footprint. Downstairs the furniture is of a professional high quality giving the floor a clean-cut professional bistro-style look. The shop is located in a pedestrianised historic lane and leads from the retail park consisting of high street shops, nail bars and hairdressers. The shop is managed by the owner and a part-time manager supported by three flexible part-time staff, all of a very high standard. There is scope to extend the opening hours here, particularly into the evening, converting the daytime coffee shop into an early evening bistro style venue (subject to any necessary consents). Our clients hold regular events that include lunch and bunch (in partnership with the neighbouring florist), weekly walking groups calling in for lunch, weight watcher groups for their monthly treats, birthday parties for children and adults, afternoon teas throughout the week, with larger groups (up to 50 being held on Sundays). Additional revenue can be realised by marketing these events on a wider scale. Stock £5,000.
