The business is located on Roker Baths Road which is a busy through road running through the heart of this popular suburb to the north of Sunderland centre.
The subject property forms part of a small terrace on a prominent corner at the junction of Roker Baths Road and Hampden Road. Nearby occupiers include a busy convenience store but the majority of the buildings nearby comprise residential housing.
This is a pleasant and densely populated suburb with potentially strong levels of captive trade. Passing trade and visitors from outside the area enjoy the benefit of free on-street parking to the front and side.
This was a developing business which was established by our client in January 2020 from what was originally the iconic “Roker Pie Shop”. At the point of acquisition, the unit was refurbished throughout to a high standard and is reluctantly on the market owing to ill health.
The premises are configured to provide a main seating and dining area at the front catering for up to 22 covers under normal circumstances, together with a good-sized service area. To the rear there is a kitchen and prep room plus a staff and customer toilet facility.
The menu comprised traditional coffee shop fare plus ready meals, confectionery, ice creams plus hot and cold drinks. Full breakfasts and morning rolls were popular as were the lunchtime ready meals which comprised a range of specials including curries, lasagne and pies.
Viewing is strongly recommended to appreciate the fit, finish and location of this opportunity and the property would be suitable for a variety of food uses.
