This is now a very well established concern which enjoys all the considerable commercial advantages of a fantastic trading position amongst local businesses in a well known traditional Market Town in South Shropshire.
Operating from well-fitted and presented premises, the business currently primarily offers a full and varied in-house menu of classic hot and cold food, snacks, sandwiches, lunches, side orders, pastries and beverages prepared freshly to order in its fully equipped catering facilities and served in the pleasant surroundings of an attractively furnished dining area which may comfortably accommodate up to 40 covers. There is scope for continued growth, not least with regard to a degree of menu and product expansion, the possible provision of local delivery and outside catering services and to the possible introduction of trading longer hours in order to exploit year round local demand. The business would also benefit greatly by adopting a far more vigorous marketing policy of its excellent existing facilities and services, particularly with reference to the introduction of on-line advertising and ordering in order to improve upon the already high levels of turnover and profitability it has achieved since being established in its present form some nine successful years ago by the current owner and we would strongly recommend the earliest possible viewing to avoid disappointment.
