Vibrant, fresh & funky cafe & deli business for sale with a newly fitted kitchen and full shop front refurb. Healthy prep kitchen and event catering with active social media & website with 5* customer feedback - ALL READY TO GO - The potential is endless with FoodieBox!!!

I am selling my fantastic busy catering company, FoodieBox. Established back in 2012 and now with many exciting avenues. A healthy option, fresh food business that believes in locally sourced quality ingredients and bespoke menu options for all. My customer feedback & word of mouth speaks volumes and hopefully I can give you an idea of what's on offer in this advert. 

There is almost too much to list so I'll try to take you through it step by step!

Orrell, Wigan, Lancashire - On a busy cross road with private parking

Rented at £500 per month with £0 business rates in the Wigan borough at present (and have been for the past 10 years). Landlord will provide a new lease for the new tenant on a 3 year deal preferably but this can be negotiated before purchase of business.

Business Avenues:
Busy Café / Deli open 9am – 2pm at present (opening hours can be extended) – Serving hot & cold food to eat in or take-away with items to purchase from the deli and special orders by request

Event Catering – Existing customers in the NHS hospitals, private medical companies, local funerals, wedding, christening, birthdays and long term clients

Meal Prep Kitchen – Operates by order only and runs with an average of 200-250 prep meals per week

Evening Take-Away – Scope for expansion for evening hours as there is only Pizza and Chinese available in the area. There is a huge gap for something different
What's Included? 
EVERYTHING basically! The newly renovated kitchen with all equipment such as; Brand New 5 ring, warming plate, double oven/grill range, New double extraction,large grill, microwave, pottery, fridges, till, tables & chairs, freezer, all equipment to run the cafe/deli. 

A bespoke professionally designed website by Recoil Web Design (, with a £2000 re-design package already paid so will be included in sale of the business. Online shop for meal prep purchases already on there but as part of the new design package can be designed by the new owner. 

Active social media pages - Check us out on facebook to see our 5* customer feedback -

7 Days of training will be provided if needed by myself so a seamless transition can occur if you simply want to keep the door open and maintain cash flow. 

Turnover & Cash Flow
The cafe / deli will cash anything from £150 - £200 per day with 6 hour opening times, 6 days per week at present = up to £1200 per week
Meal Prep Kitchen - £5-£7.50 per meal with 200-250 meals per week = £1,250 - £1,875 per week
Event Catering - Events are a minimum of £100 - £5,000 so difficult to give you an idea but weekly medical lunches are usually sold for £250 for 15 people.

We have successfully ran this business between myself and a member of staff. We manage the cafe / deli, catering and meal prep between us. The cafe can be run single handedly but an extra person is needed if there is a booked event or on meal prep cook days which are currently Sundays & Wednesdays, otherwise you could run this business solo. 

£28,000 includes all the above as listed. The business would be cost neutral by 10 months, so you would earn the full £28,000 back after 10 months and this is without any event catering included to give you an idea of the total potential of this business. 

Reasons for Sale
I am due to retire so the timing seems perfect to move the business on to the next steps. 

Future Potential 
The Cafe / Deli is busy, but the opening hours are currently 9am-2pm just due to my time. If the cafe opened between 7am - 3pm, it would extend trading by 3 hours alone. We also do not currently offer a delivery service and in the past we have ran a delivery round which collected £100 a day in the lunch hour around the local trading estate. 

Meal Prep - We have restricted this to a smaller number of clients so we can manage their bespoke requirements - Mr Universe along with many other professional athletes are clients of ours. There is a huge market for this meal prep service in Wigan and the surrounding areas. This could be easily be expanded to home delivery and a freezer section in the shop too which we had plans for. 

Take-Away - We think this is the biggest potential to offer a slightly different take-away experience. People no longer want just the usual pizza's, kebabs and chinese. We think the home cooked meal prep food would go down a storm as evening takeaway as well as modifying it for the market with gourmet fresh naked burgers and sweet potato fries etc. . . you can only imagine. We nearly signed a deal with JustEat just before I decided it was time to retire but I can imagine this would take off as the area does not have many offerings like this but out customers certainly tell me they want it.
