Lisanne Rogers created and opened Wickwar Coffee in 2010, and following strong growth subsequently developed an outside catering business. Lisanne has decided to sell the coffee shop business to focus on the outside catering business.
The new owners Adam and Louise Sydney live locally and were looking for a change of direction, the Wickwar Coffee shop represented the perfect opportunity. With Adam’s catering experience he has already made the transition easily; stepping into the shoes of the previous owner. Adam and Louise will continue to run the business in a similar style. They intend to make a few changes, to put their own stamp on the business.
Nicholas Calfe, Director at Christie & Co's Bristol office comments; "Wickwar Coffee shop presented an excellent opportunity for a first time buyer seeking their first business as well as appealing to those seeking a career change. The sale of this business further demonstrates the demand for quality businesses across the South West region, with appetite increasing across buyers and banks to purchase profitable businesses in this sector.”
