Café Fresh Has Been Sold Thanks to Bruce & Co.
20th January 2020
This bustling café in Dunfermline, Fife is now under new ownership.
This popular and unique Scottish café has been under the ownership of the previous vendor since 2016.
In this relatively short time, the business has consolidated strong relationships and deep roots within this picturesque town. It has ultimately generated an excellent reputation within the locality.
Offering a variety of hot and cold drinks, Café Fresh has proved to be a favourable establishment amongst both the town’s residents, and also for passers-by.
Café Fresh has greatly benefitted from regular reinvestment from the previous owner. It has also received expert direction from the experienced operator.
As a result of this, the café has positioned itself at the top of its business sector in the local area.
The vendor approached the business brokerage Bruce & Co. to place their unique café onto the market. They desired to focus more on family commitments, and therefore they decided to sell their business to do so.
They knew it was time for a new sector operator to take ownership of the business, and to add their own ideas and personal touches to the café.
The vendor was also a returning client of Bruce & Co. They previously purchased the café through their services.
Once Bruce & Co. placed the café onto the market, the business swiftly sold after receiving just 3 viewings and 2 competitive offers.
It was ultimately acquired by a first-time buyer. They have a substantial background in retail and as a chef; and they wanted to acquire a business in the service sector that they could run themselves.
The good price and the prime trading location of the business was what ultimately influenced the sale.
The vendor commented;
“The experience with Bruce & Co. has been good, Sophie has kept in touch and chased things for me that needed doing instead of me doing it alone.”
“I would recommend Bruce & Co. as there is a flat fee, not a percentage, which helped me budget.”
The buyer commented;
“Our experience has been good with Bruce & Co. Sophie has been very friendly and helpful in making sure things went smoothly.”
“The level of service has been great, and we are excited to complete. We have gone past the nervous stage and looking forward to getting into the business.”
“I would definitely recommend Bruce & Co. to friends and family.”
Lead Negotiator Sophie Jakeman commented;
“I am happy the sale completed in the agreed timescale, and I wish our clients the best of luck for the future.”
