0 bedroom Catering located at Lyme Regis - Guide Price: £85,000
Full Description:Guide Price: £85,000
The present owner took over the premises in January 2013 (there was a successful cafe/restaurant here for many years before that) and started a unique vegetarian restaurant. This has proved to be a real hit for both lunch and dinner customers and an excellent turnover of around £200,000 (inc. VAT) reflects that success. Clientele includes locals, holiday home owners and visitors with many regular customers attracted by the high quality freshly cooked food and a range of wines and beers.
Accounts will be made available to seriously interested applicants.
Note: This has always proved to be a busy and profitable location and whilst there is clearly a strong demand for vegetarian cuisine, a new proprietor may choose to introduce a different style of food.
