About The Property

***BUSY CAFE DINER FOR SALE With A1 and A3 Consent*** ON VERY BUSY MAIN ROAD IN DARWEN*** ESTABLISHED BUSINESS*** ON LONG LEASE*** BECOME YOUR OWN BOSS*** READY TO TAKE OVER IMMEDIATELY*** PLUS GOOD QUALITY FIXTURES & FITTINGS IN PLACE AVAILABLE TO PURCHASE SEPARATELY** AVAILABLE NOW*** 100% BUSINESS RATES RELEIF*** Ainsworth Lord Estates Ltd are delighted to be offering the opportunity to purchase this business, a BUSY EAT IN & TAKE AWAY - DINER CAFE (with A1 & A3 Consent) on one of the busiest main roads in the country (A666), in the Lynwood Area of Darwen (north of the town centre).

Here we have a Busy Thriving Business, with an excellent reputation and maximum scores on the door, and sales increasing significantly week on week. However, we have been advised this business has become too much for the current owner who wants to retire shortly. So we have been instructed to market the business and find someone to take over this business.

This Diner/Cafe is available immediately subject to a successful application, and agreement between all parties for the purchase of the fixtures & fittings for approx £13k

We believe the new owners could continue to grow this business even more... especially with the outside catering/buffet part.

There is ample on-road parking around the shop.

Including a busy off-licence and general store, pizza shop, carpet retailer, Chinese take-away, Barbers, and furniture shop etc. all of which attract plenty of footfall in their own right.


A popular pelican crossing

With a pelican crossing at your front door, everyone who crosses the road at this busy spot will see your shop (and what you have to sell), PLUS each day thousands of cars that stop outside when the lights are on red, will notice you too. (What form of advertising generates this kind of exposure.... thousands of hits per day or views etc....? The cost of getting so much exposure would be phenomenal! all this comes included in the rent).


Two bus stops

With two bus stops at the front, one on each side of the road, the amount of exposure you get keeps on getting better!


Thousands of residential properties

If you know this area, you will know there are two large housing estates very close by (and some even larger ones further down the road) as well as hundreds of additional properties in the surrounding streets. The opportunity this presents is huge.... more customers just waiting for you to open up shop!


Several Large Employers

With Akzo Nobel, Crown Paints across the road, Herbert Parkinson (John Lewis Partnership) at the back, and loads of other small businesses close by, - all of which combined, employ loads of people.


Nearby Schools

There are two primary schools within easy reach, one of the largest secondary schools in Darwen, just down the road. All of which generate lots of healthy footfall and opportunity for repeat business.


Darwen cricket club & Darwen Golf club

Both of these clubs are nearby and generate lots of passing footfall at different times of the week. All this additional footfall is important for any business.
