Falcon Commercial is delighted to offer for sale this extremely well-presented Café and Delicatessens which occupies a prime trading position in the main shopping area of this popular Devon seaside town. It has been under the proud ownership of our clients since 2016. It is now reluctantly being placed on the market as the owner wishes to concentrate on his other business interests outside of the catering industry.

During our client’s stewardship the business has built up an excellent reputation for its welcoming atmosphere, fantastic food and great service.

This extremely well presented turnkey café and Delicatessens enjoys a central town centre trading position on a busy shopping thoroughfare with good pedestrian flow.  Shoppers are attracted to the area by the famous beach as well as the range of independently owned businesses on offer. This thriving business is mainly operated as a daytime Café where all produce is sourced locally wherever possible and all food is freshly prepared and cooked to order. It is considered the premises are suitable for all types of cuisine

The business is run by our clients with help from a dedicated team of full time & part time staff and generates a turnover in the region of £123,000 per year with healthy gross profit margins. There is tremendous potential to increase the turnover possibly running a modest marketing campaign or by extending the opening hours to include Sundays as well as earlier in the morning or evenings, especially in the summer months.

This rarely available opportunity is not to be missed and early negotiations with Falcon Commercial come highly recommended
