Busy and profitable café with minimal overheads
Ref: C 895
Mrs B’s is an extremely popular cafe primarily serving the Pockington Industrial Estate, just off the A1079 near the attractive market town of Pocklington about 14 miles east of York. The cafe is run on convenient hours, closing at 1.30pm and serves a variety of light meals, snacks and drinks particularly at breakfast and lunch times. The owner runs the business with a part time helper and is only selling due to her need for more spare time. The cafe operates from a detached ‘Portacabin’ type building which is owned and forms part of the sale. The land on which it stands is leased from the estate and we understand that there has been a cafe here for over 20 years.
