Knobbly Cob café and takeaway, 15 Westgate Street, Gloucester

The property is a Leasehold Sandwich Bar & Coffee House, located In Gloucester. The business has been established for 26 years.

Since ownership there has been continual investment in new equipment along with fixtures & fittings which are all bought and paid for and included within the sale price which is a huge plus for any new purchaser as additional funds will not need to be spent for some time.

The Knobbly Cob is overseen by the owners but managed on a daily basis by a manager with over 20-year experience and a team of 2 full time and 4 part time members of staff. (One of the owners is a full-time catering manager who will not be staying on).

For their first trading year they turned over £254,529 with a GP of £210,650 (83%) which produces a decent net profit for an owner operator. A selection of hot and cold food and drinks are available inside, taken away or delivered via the on-line delivery portals, Just Eat, Uber Eats and Deliveroo. They also offer outside catering & buffets for private functions and office meetings.

An owner operating at the helm would increase revenue along with extending the current opening times. The business has built a strong reputation within the local community and beyond for serving quality food and as such has a high level of regular and repeat trade. This is an opportunity to purchase an established business with further potential which is a great base to build upon and as such early viewing is highly recommended as this gem is not to be missed.
