Hilton Smythe are delighted to offer to the market The Beehive Café, a newly established café located on Manchester Rd, Stockport. The building was fully renovated and designed with bespoke, high quality décor to create a friendly and inviting atmosphere. Our client took over the business at the end of 2019 as a partnership, however, has been running the business single handed and is now looking for an enthusiastic buyer to take over the reins.

The café is also well known by the locals and attracts custom from further afield. Due to the great location of the café, the business has ample amount of footfall, most of the customers are regulars and word of mouth recommendations.
The business boasts excellent 5-star hygiene rating and an excellent review status, with customers stating ‘Amazing - great quality and delicious food, lovely service and incredible value! Will be heading back soon, it's good to see somewhere more affordable in Heaton Chapel. Thanks to the owners!’ and ‘What a lovely place, friendly and welcoming atmosphere and food is great value for money. Definitely worth a visit.’ Our client is also offering a hand over period to ensure the continued success of the business.
