Former Café, Delicatessen & Takeaway in Budleigh Salterton East Devon


Falcon Commercial is delighted to offer for sale this extremely well-presented Cafe which occupies a prime trading position on one of the main roads that runs through Budleigh Salterton. The business has recently closed but our clients had been successfully trading since 2016 during which time they made considerable investment and improvements. It is now reluctantly being placed on the market as the owner wishes to concentrate on their other business interests.

During our client’s stewardship the business has built up an excellent reputation for its welcoming atmosphere, fantastic food, superb value and great service.

The business ran as a lively and busy Delicatessen, take away and retail unit with the opportunity to eat in and enjoy locally sourced and freshly made light snacks, meals and beverages. Appealing to all age groups and demographics it has been a key business within the town for numerous years. It is considered the premises are suitable for all types of cuisine.

The business was run by our client with help from a dedicated team of part time staff. It generated a turnover in the region of £178,000 per year with healthy gross profit margins.

This rarely available opportunity is not to be missed and early negotiations with Falcon Commercial come highly recommended
