Ref: C 898

Tenure: Leasehold

We are delighted to offer this thriving and very popular deli come sandwich bar which has gained a fine reputation for the high quality of the products they offer and which is only offered for sale due to a change in the personal circumstances of the owner.  The business has been established since 2012 and has made a point of selling as much locally sourced products as possible. The cold sandwiches are made using high quality buns from a North Yorkshire bakery and all fillings are homemade using quality ingredients.  Other food sold includes hot bacon or sausage sandwiches, homemade soup and baked potatoes.  The current owner also makes her own cakes and there is a regular stream of requests for celebration cakes, cupcakes etc. As well as on site sales, there is a further aspect to this business  providing outside catering services including buffets and business lunches as and when required. This is run as a separate business for tax reasons but is all included in the sale.

The business is run from attractive retail premises within an established local parade serving the ever popular village of Bishopthorpe, just outside York.   There is ample customer parking outside as well as a rear service yard for staff parking and deliveries etc.
