Are you running your Cafe or 

is your Cafe running you?

Let us help you take control, make more profit and avoid burnout 

Full Support for Busy Cafe Owners. 

As I am sure you probably know, running a cafe can very quickly take over your life. Long hours, staff problems and admin can often leave cafe owners feeling overwhelmed and burnt out.

Understandably when you get into this kind of situation things can slip. Suddenly you don't have time to pay attention to the smaller details or work pro actively as you are nearly always in firefighting mode.

Unless you manage to break out of this cycle you seem to end up working harder but not earning anymore. This also has an impact on the value of your business and its attractiveness to buyers.

Having been in the situations above myself, escaped and lived to tell the tale I am now passionate about helping other cafe owners to regain control of their business, their time and their future.

What is the Cafe Consulting Service?

This service is for Cafe owners that are keen to make more profit, work less re actively and increase the value of their business.

We deliver practical solutions to Cafe owners to help them improve their day to day operations, add more to the bottom line and have a business that is ready to sell at anytime.

Paul Leach

I grew up in the food business, my parents owned two very successful restaurants and I remember working (or a least thinking I was) in them from a very early age.

All through school I knew I wanted to go in to the hospitality industry and the day that I started at College could not come quick enough. I spent an enjoyable three years learning my trade and left college to join my parents in their second restaurant.

In 1992 my parents decided that the time was right for them to sell up and I felt it was also the right time for me to go out on my own.

In 1993 I opened my first Cafe called “Hogarth’s” and that is really where it all began. Since then I have built up and sold nine food businesses and loved every minute (well most of it) and learnt a lot about how the sale process works.

I love the food industry and really wanted to crack double digits and open shop number ten, unfortunately the two things that I value the most in my life, my marriage and my health probably would not have lasted so I called it a day.

I always felt that there was a better way to sell cafes and food businesses and that is where GSE and the “Six Steps to Sale” program have come from.

I am now using the experience I gained selling all those businesses to help others to do the same. It works well for me as I am still involved in the industry and it helps my clients by them avoiding some of the mistakes that I made when selling my first couple of cafes – Win Win!

If you are considering the sale of your cafe and are not sure if you are going to sell the business yourself or through a broker or if you are not 100% sure what is involved and what happens then you are in the right place.

I would love the opportunity to show you more about how this approach can help you to sell your business either yourself or through a broker and be confident that you are getting the best deal possible.
