Business Details

Well-known and successful play cafe for sale

We are selling our family-owned and run play cafe. It is an excellent opportunity for someone to make it their own. The reason behind the sale is a change in personal circumstances due to the pandemic and health issues. We can longer give it the time and love it needs to grow and expand to its full potential. Unfortunately, we don't have the drive to push the business where it needs to go.

We specialise in offering a place for parents to enjoy coffee, homemade cake, and homemade food, whilst their children can play for a small fee. We expanded the business just before lockdown over two units.

There is an option to take both units for £50,000 per annum vat or the main unit with soft play structure and commercial kitchen for £30,000 per annum. (5 years are left on the £30,000 lease. We have broken out of the older unit. However, it could still be agreed for the whole unit as the landlord is allowing us to continue to use it until he finds new tenants. ) There is plenty of parking with the car park and road parking. We have 12 in our lease and temporary use of four.

We have expanded during the pandemic to include a locally sourced bagel company and they are extremely popular on delivery. We have created a bagel bar account on delivery and just eat, which is building nicely in popularity. We now have a five-star fully fitted commercial kitchen ( rated in October 2021 ).

Adding uber and other local platforms would be a great asset and has been in our plans. The kitchen is perfect to expand into outside catering and bakery ( which is where we planned to go).

We have started to offer these services to our customers, but with some investment in marketing this could take off in the area with local deliveries to businesses. We have added many strings to our bow, including a sweet shop online and in-store and an online cookie shop.

We work with a local dairy to provide locally sourced ice creams and sundaes. All these areas are in the early setup stages but have great potential with marketing input to let people know what we offer.

The cafe has a large social media following and is regularly recommended locally. We also have a good reputation in the community. We have a huge amount of regulars and a wonderful team of staff.

Our main income on weekends is from the main site being closed exclusively for-

  • Children's birthday parties ( with two months full of advance booking )
  • Regular children-led events: craft events, meet and greets with children's characters ( mascots included in sale) Halloween, Easter and Santa events.

Extra income can be obtained by keeping the second unit. You can keep it open to the public on the weekend, as there are internal doors that separate the two.

We believe that with the correct marketing, a great team and someone with a real passion for business can take it to the next level. At the moment, we don't believe we can.

We recommend investment in marketing and sprucing up the areas. It will help push all the new services to the community and attract new parents to the area.
