Bruce and Co. helps expanding catering business in Berwick-upon-Tweed
Situated in the coastal town of Berwick-upon-Tweed, the Upper West Street café bistro, enjoys regular trade thanks to their prominent high street position, attracting regular clientele and high amounts of tourist footfall visiting the seaside resort.
The recently refurbished business quickly established an exceptional reputation throughout the community, becoming renowned for its welcoming atmosphere and flexible service, offering a range of breakfast, lunch and light snack options alongside refreshments and alcoholic beverages. The incredible demand seen at the café allowed the business to expand, catering for private events and dinner servings throughout the summer months.
Once on the market with Bruce & Co. the café received an offer after multiple viewings, with the business being put up for sale due to the vendor’s wish to pursue other business ventures. The successful bid was ultimately made by a proprietor wishing to expand within the culinary sector, with the acquisition being their second catering venture.
Pleased with the tenacity shown throughout the sales process, the vendor said:
“Sophie from Bruce & Co. updated me regularly on where the buyer’s solicitor was up to and ensured the sale was being pushed along.”
Delighted with the conduct of Bruce & Co.’s exceptional negotiators, the buyer commented:
“Bruce & Co. have been very helpful, friendly and Sophie is very approachable, I look forward to working with Sophie to sell my business.”
Giving an insight into the sale, Lead Negotiator of the sale Sophie Jakeman shared:
“I was delighted to oversee the sale of the business and look forward to working with the buyer on the sale of her business. It was a pleasure to work with the buyer and our vendor.”
