Aspire is delighted to present to the market this long established cafe and restaurant, located in an enviable trading position on a pedestrianised street in the centre of Blackpool. With excellent foot traffic and passing trade, there are an abundance of complementary shops and businesses in the vicinity. With its town centre location, the business benefits from ample car parking close by, with a bus stop just along the street and the train station within easy walking distance. Appealing to a wide range of tourists, Blackpool is famous for its fun and exciting atmosphere, with many attractions, great shopping and, of course, the beach.
The M55 motorway is easily accessible.
The business was established by the current owner over 27 years ago, and is only now presented to the market due to retirement. The owner has developed a good local reputation for providing fresh, quality food. This is reflected on internet review sites.
The premises are fully licensed.
Set in the centre of row of complementary businesses, the restaurant is located in a lock up, two story unit, with prominent, wide frontage onto the main street. There is ample outside seating, accommodating up to 48 covers, with a further 70 covers inside on the ground floor and 50 covers on the first floor.
Internally, the bright, open-plan cafe is finished with contemporary fittings and decor and there is a long serving counter with a range of cabinets displaying the food selection. To the rear of the cafe is a fully equipped kitchen, with ample prep and storage areas, and a rear exit door leading to a 3-space car parking zone.
Upstairs the licensed bar has more traditional seating and decor, creating a cosy atmosphere, and there is a lounge area with comfortable chairs and coffee tables, positioned near the bar. Again, this floor has a fully equipped kitchen, staff room and customer WC’s.
Opening hours – Monday to Sunday, 8.00am to 6.00pm.
There is potential to further expand the business by extending the opening hours and introducing bistro dining in the evenings. The introduction of a website would further market the business and it may also be possible to introduce outside catering.
