The Cornish Vegan is situated on Kenwyn Street in the City of Truro which, has a resident population of approximately 20,000 and is the commercial centre for the county of Cornwall. The City boasts a range of national and niche retailers, has schooling for all ages, easy access to the nearby A30 and a station on the main Penzance to Paddington rail line.

Description / The Business

These delightful two storey premises have been upgraded by our client during their tenure with a pleasantly presented customer seating area, a well equipped commercial kitchen and a real boon for The Cornish Vegan is the enclosed courtyard to the rear elevation.

Our clients currently trade 5 days a week from Tuesday to Saturday inclusive with opening hours of 10am to 4pm and food is available from 11am to 3pm. In our opinion there is tremendous opportunity for growth through expanding the opening hours into the weekend evenings.

The business is operated by a husband and wife team with the assistance of a number of part-time employees.

Accounts for the year ending 31st May 2019 showed a turnover of £115,724. Full accounting information will be made available to prospective purchasers subject to a viewing appointment in the usual manner.

As previously alluded to The Cornish Vegan has quickly established itself as the County’s leading vegan eatery and has won a number of awards including Cornwall Tourism Awards 2018/2019 Gold, South West England Tourism Excellence Awards 2018 to 2019 Gold and was featured in the Lonely Planet 2019/2020 Guide to Great Britain.
