This immaculately presented sandwich bar and cafe enjoys a superb location on one of the most eclectic and sought after streets in the city which has, over recent years, seen a total regeneration to become one of York’s must visit eating areas. The business is run by a two person team without staff so the overheads are extremely low thus paving the way to generate highly respectable net profits.
The standard of internal fit out and presentation is second to none with all items of equipment being of a high standard. There is indoor seating for 10 plus outside seating for a further 6 customers.
The business specialises in the sale of sourdough sandwiches, bagels, toasties, fresh fruit smoothies, milk shakes and malts, coffees and brunch. Current opening hours, by reason of personal choice, are Tuesday to Friday 8.00am to 2.00pm, Saturday 9.00am to 2.00pm. The lease permits the premises to be open until 7.00pm if required.

The premises are shown on the Valuation Office Rating web site as having a RV of £9600. Under current arrangements for small businesses, no rates should be payable however interested parties must check this information prior to proceeding.
The premises are understood to be held on a 6 year renewable lease from April 2016 at a rent of £12,500 pa vat. Please note we have not had sight of the lease at the time of preparing these particulars therefore this information requires confirmation.
The business has run at a pre pandemic level of around £1200 per week however it is our opinion as agents that the business is capable of far higher takings given slightly longer opening hours. This is a matter of personal choice. The current owners are only selling due to one party’s impending retirement. The business is considered ideal for a 2 person team so as to maintain overheads at the current minimal level and thus maximise profits.
The property has an EPC rating of TBC.
The purchaser will be required to pay a contribution of £450 vat towards the landlords legal costs involved in preparing the lease.
Around £47,500 sav.
