Whether it’s catching up with friends, or an important business meeting, more often than not, many of us do this over a cup of coffee; and with coffee shops on almost every high street, many are doing a roaring trade.
According to a survey by the Caffe’ Culture Show three quarters of independent coffee shops saw a like for like turnover increase in 2015 compared to 2014, with nearly a third reporting an increase of nearly 20 per cent or more.
Cafe Culture may have started on the Parisian boulevards that line the Seine, but you are now just as likely to find an independent coffee shop serving everything from smoothies to various drinks and snacks that can cater to a range of diets including gluten free and low fat, right here in the UK.
Nowhere is this alfresco lifestyle reflected more than in Manchester, especially Didsbury where professionals and students mingle with the recently retired, all of them enjoying their favourite variety of Java as they put the finishing touches to that big presentation or simply watch the world go by.
Right now Sovereign has a wonderful independent cafe for sale right in the heart of this cosmopolitan suburb, as well as others in different regions across the North West. So if you are thinking about buying a business in this burgeoning industry, or perhaps you already have a cafe and are looking to move on to something new, contact us and we will be more than happy to guide you through either process. We could even meet for a chat. I’ll be having a Latte.
