Coffee Plant Roastery Business for Sale

In the last few years roasteries and coffee shops have had to deal with uncertain demand, sky high coffee prices and soaring overheads including gas, rent, rates, and wages.

But there are also opportunities. One is consolidation. It takes the same time to roast a batch on a larger roaster as it does on a smaller one.

There are lots of small roasters with too little capacity and too many overheads. If you have the demand, one way to break out of this is to scale up.

This is where Coffee Plant roastery comes in. After 40 years I'm retiring as owner. I have recently sold Coffee Plant shop in London's Portobello Road as a franchise and am now moving towards a sale of the roastery.

The business is on an industrial park a few minutes walk from North Wembley tube and overground. It has a reliable easy to use 30kgs roaster, a busy modern website, a customer database of two thousand and a lease on a factory unit in the extensive East Lane Business Park.

We recently installed a double walled stainless steel chimney, modern smoke detection and a gas safety interlock, so fire risk and smoke nuisance complaints are not the worry they can be if you are operating in a retail area.

This opportunity might be of interest to you if you

Have a small roastery and have outgrown your capacity, or would like to amalgamate to save on overheads Would like to roast your own coffee for your chain of cafes Can see the massive potential to expand Coffee Plant mail order

Just three months after I sold Coffee Plant shop the new owners have achieved a double digit increase in sales. With new owners and a publicity push I anticipate similar results for the roastery.

As a roaster, if you buy Coffee Plant Roastery you will have the options to use the Coffee Plant brand, or fully amalgamate our customer base and web site with your operation. As a coffee shop owner you can switch supply to our well known ethical brand and do your own roasting, cutting out the middle man and making even better drinks. As an internet retailer I would advise you to keep things as they are initially with the option of merging your Coffee Plant sales later.

Enjoying wide recognition in the media world, Coffee Plant is ripe for a national publicity campaign. Shop customers include many journalists and artists from the Notting Hill area.

Nothing in the current climate is guaranteed but there is certainly massive scope for the new owners to cut overheads, boost online sales and in the longer term open new franchised retail outlets.

If you find any of this interesting just email me, preferably with a few words on where you are coming from. Please put something like roastery sale in the subject line
