Available on request

Veritas business sales are privileged to offer to the market this well respected café which is located in the highly desirable town of Stratford upon avon. The business has been trading for over 20 years and has been in the careful hands of the current owners for the past 16 months and is reluctantly being offered for sale as my client wishes to go back to turkey.

Since ownership they have invested in a new website along with new equipment and fixtures and fittings which are all bought and paid for and included within the sale price, which is a huge plus for a new owner as additional funds will not need to spent for some time. Havilands is owner operated and employs the help of 3 full time and 4 part time members of staff and has an annual turnover of circa £280,000 per annum. Approximately 50% of the turnover is through the café, 40% from the takeaway section and the remaining 10% comes from the outside catering & buffets.

The cafe serves a fine selection English cooked breakfasts, freshly prepared sandwiches, baguettes, panini's, jacket potatoes, salads, soups, hot daily main course specials, pasties, pies, homemade quiches, cakes, cold drinks, crisps and specialist coffees & teas. This summer they have purchased an ice cream cart which is placed outside and is very popular. All fayre is freshly prepared on site to order, using only the freshest locally sourced produce.

We believe that the forthcoming year will benefit from an increase in turnover by the opening of a late bar which will be opening shortly and their entrance door is directly behind the café. Plans are to open the takeaway section evenings to sell food to people as the leave the bar. The cafe already enjoys a strong reputation within the local community and beyond and as such has a high level of regular and repeat trade along with many visiting tourists.

This is a superb opportunity to purchase an established business that that still has further potential which is a great base to build upon and as such early viewing is highly recommended as this superb business is not to be missed.
