Leasehold Price: £45,000
Annual Turnover: £180,000
Hilton Smythe welcomes to the market The Chocolate Room, which was established by our client in 2013.

The Chocolate Room is currently a franchise and the only one in Europe. If the new owner continues with the franchise, there would be an extra cost of circa £30,000 and an 8% monthly fee to be paid on the turnover. For this the new owner will get branded cups and around 20 different flavoured hot chocolates. All other merchandise is purchased by the business owner. Otherwise the new owner could look to rebrand for a small cost and continue with the current business model.

The Chocolate Room is a coffee shop that specialises in hot chocolate and sells individual Belgian Chocolates. The business also serves afternoon tea, along with paninis and desserts. The premises have an A1 licence.

The business has a very good reputation both online and in store having many repeat customers and strong online reviews including 4.2/5 from 188 Google reviewers and 4.5/5 from 64 TripAdvisor reviewers. The business has a website and a Facebook page along with Instagram and Twitter. Delivery partners are JustEat, Deliveroo and recently UberEATS.

There is scope for development of the business by considering:

  • Getting permission to add a kitchen to increase the menu.
  • Obtain an alcohol licence for the evening trade.
Hilton Smythe highly advise early viewing to avoid disappointment.

The Chocolate Room is in Harrow, Middlesex on Station Road, a main shopping area within the town which has a very strong footfall due to the vast array of shops that bring a huge amount of custom to the area. There is parking behind for one vehicle that is included within the lease.
