BUSINESS
Hilton Smythe welcomes to the market Cheese & Alfies. The business was originally established by our clients in 2010. The business has been run to an exceptional standard and looks presentable. The owners are now looking to sell the restaurant, due to the desire to take a well-deserved retirement.

The business runs as a 45-cover restaurant in a town centre location. This is a quirky restaurant that boasts an excellent menu. Dishes include burgers, pancakes, sandwiches, pasta dishes, salads, desserts and much more. This is a family friendly restaurant that also offers a children’s menu.

This is an award-winning restaurant winning the ‘Best Restaurant Award’. Our client has also earned a 5-star food hygiene rating, this is excellent for a restaurants reputation.

On the first floor, there is a generous sized seating area and bar. This is perfect for private functions. Our clients currently cater for birthdays, christening and other celebrations. This is a great arm of the business that compliments the restaurant well.

Another service our clients provide are cooking classes with the head chef. These are held on Monday evenings and generate a little extra income.

The business generated a turnover in the region of £289,000 as of the 2016 accounts. This is an exceptional turnover that we feel could be further increased. Cheese & Alfies already has a Facebook and business website. These are great ways of advertising; however, we feel that the purchaser could consider other ways of marketing. Leaflet drops and posters would be a great start. The owners currently promote 2-4-1 offers, this is popular with customer and allows for a generous amount of repeat loyal trade.

The business website is included in the sale. (www.cheeseandalfies.com) This site is easy to use and looks highly presentable. The website is used to promote the business and is kept updated.

Another way in which we feel income could be boosted would be to offer a delivery service to the local area. This would be a great option and could thrive during lunch time trade. This service could be advertised on sites such as JustEat.

This is a fantastic Leasehold opportunity that is not to be missed. Hilton Smythe highly advise early viewing to take in the full potential of the restaurant.
