The Moor, Sheffield
- Fully equipped café premises which must be viewed to be appreciated
- Prominent corner position perhaps the best within The Moor Market
- Established almost 60 years ago in 1964
- Only available upon retirement
A rare and excellent opportunity to acquire a beautifully set up and well-established café which has built up an enviable reputation with a large and loyal customer base coming from far and wide.
Only available on the retirement of the owners, a viewing is essential to appreciate the quality of the opportunity on offer.
Sallies occupies perhaps the most prominent and desirable position within The Moor Market, a purpose built market with 196 stalls designed using both contemporary and traditional elements providing a landmark building upon The Moor which was opened in November 2013 providing a modern indoor farmer's style market which replaced the Castle Market.
Sallies is a long established family business which began trading in the 1960's, and has operated as Sallies since 1964, originally within the Castle Market, and then within the newly developed Moor Market since 2013. The business was the longest trading café within Castle Market, and was the first to be awarded five stars for cleanliness in 2007, when only two other businesses within Sheffield City Centre achieved such a rating.
The owners have an eye for detail, and meticulously operate the business to exceptional standards both in terms of cleanliness and hygiene as the 5* Hygiene rating demonstrates, and customer service which sees many returning customers including some second and third generation customer over the years.
The café specializes in providing hot and cold snacks of high quality, with all sandwiches being freshly prepared to order the hot roast pork sandwiches with stuffing and crackling being renowned as a favourite in the locality. Even the teas and coffees are of the highest quality, utilizing traditional loose-leaf tea and the best quality coffee.
The premises have been very well set up with a range of high quality equipment throughout, with a range of screens showing the menus providing a stylish and modern facility that is easy to update.
The Moor Market provides excellent seating areas throughout, which are cleaned and looked after as part of the market, with the stall holders only responsible for their own stalls ensuring easy maintenance and management.
It is rare such a well-established and highly regarded family business comes to the market, and an early viewing is highly recommended.
The business is well established, and the accounts show a consistent turnover as to be expected from such an established and well-run business, with a gross profit of 66% +.
Accounting information can be made available following on from a viewing of the business.
The business also provides an excellent opportunity to expand into other areas of operation such as external catering.
The business does not currently have a huge online presence, instead relying on its reputation for quality and prominent position, however this is an area which provides exceptional potential for growth with a website and social media advertising.
The Moor Market is open from 8.00am to 5.30pm Monday to Saturday providing excellent scope in terms of opening hours.
The business benefits from excellent lease terms which were carried over from the Castle Market. For further details please do not hesitate to contact our office where we can provide further information.
