Unique South Manchester café brought to the market

Specialist business property adviser, Christie & Co is pleased to bring to the market Bisque & Beyond, a unique family arts café located in the affluent South Manchester suburb of Didsbury.

Occupying a five-storey brick building with a pitched tiled roof, Bisque & Beyond boasts a recently renovated basement and function room that is currently used to host a variety of baby sensory classes, children’s parties and other events, and a newly renovated ground floor trading area, which houses the café. The café serves locally sourced food and drinks, including homemade cakes and bakes, with produce sourced from local suppliers, including Heart & Graft Coffee Roastery and Trove Bakery.

Also included in the sale is an owner’s apartment with four bedrooms, of which two have en suite facilities, making the business an ideal purchase for an owner-operator looking for a lifestyle business with plenty of growth potential.

Situated in a prominent position on a busy parade of restaurants, bars and other commercial properties, Bisque & Beyond is also well connected to both Manchester City Centre and neighbouring suburbs by direct bus and Metrolink routes.

Current owner, Marianne Mcdowell comments, “It's a fantastic opportunity for someone wanting a unique family orientated business with huge potential for profitability and growth, thanks to the variety of products and services we offer, in addition to the evening classes, events and parties, which are already proving popular. The fact that we are licensed, have planning permission in both the A1 & A3 categories, a trademark for our brand and extended opening hours that have already been approved for 9am to 9.30pm offers massive potential for future growth and extended trade. The only reason why we are considering selling up now is because a specialist job opportunity has arisen elsewhere that is better suited to our family's long-term needs.”

Ashley Cobban, Business Agent at Christie & Co is handling the sale and comments, “Although only recently opened, Bisque & Beyond is a fantastic opportunity for anyone looking to take on an existing business. It is well located, suitably differentiated, and unlike anything else on the market right now.”

Bisque & Beyond has been brought to the market through Christie & Co on a freehold basis at an asking price of £1,050,000.
