GENUINE REASON FOR SALE
The Courtyard Deli and Kitchen is situated in Bells Court, which is just off the main High Street, in the bustling harbour and Port which has seen significant growth and investment in recent years, due in part to the expansion of the University.
Bells Court has several period properties, which are well known in the Falmouth fraternity and are visible off the main High Street.
As mentioned Falmouth is widely regarded as one of the most dynamic and fastest growing towns, joining the conurbation of Penryn, which has arguably the widest array of niche retailers and food outlets and is very popular with the locals and visitors who stay within the town and its environs, given the beautiful beaches and harbour.
The Courtyard Deli and Kitchen operates from a period two storey building of natural stone elevations with a beautiful first floor seating area above a portico, with the courtyard to the front. The ground floor principally provides the retail area and commercial kitchen, with some seating and on the first floor is the primary dining/function areas, with an office and some stores. As mentioned, the property entrance is in fact the Courtyard, which provides a valuable seating area in the middle of Falmouth.
During our clients’ 4 year tenure, the property has been subject to significant updating in terms of the property, the equipment levels (amassing to some circa £40,000 worth of value we are advised) and the on-line marketing.
Our clients have owned the business since March 2015 (the business having previously traded for 7 years prior) and are now selling due to other work commitments away from the area and indeed sector.
The business trades as a daytime cafe and has an outside catering, wholesale of the macarons (commenced June 2018) and obviously the retail deli sales.
We are advised the combined turnover for the year end December 2018 was £202,748 (net of VAT), with approximately 70% being attributed to the cafe sales, which produced an overall combined gross profit level of 70.3% and an adjusted net profit of £51,798 (after deducting all overheads and wages of £57,289). Further accounting information will of course be made available subject to a viewing appointment to interested parties.
