Fat Cat Café Bar package put up for sale

Fat Cat Cafe BangorThe owners of Fat Cat Café Bars have put six of their sites up for sale, including the option to buy the name and continue roll-out.

Colliers International has been instructed to dispose of the bars in city and town centre locations in Nottingham, Leicester, Derby, Bangor (pictured), Bow in east London and Frodsham in Cheshire. It includes one freehold and four free-of-tie leasehold properties.

The Derby-based pub company, led by Matt Saunders, is currently trading 10 units within the Fat Cat Café Bars brand, including eight high street bars and two gastropubs, the Crown Inn in Anstey, Leicestershire, and the Queens Head in Frodsham.

Other Fat Cat Café Bar sites, such as Hanley in Stoke-on-Trent and Chester, are not included in the package.

Fat Cat Café Bars date back to 1992 when the first was opened in Bangor by Matt Saunders and Simon Paterson who had been students at Bangor university.

Ross Kirton, director of Colliers, said: “The Fat Cat brand has been established since the early 1990s and the sale offers the opportunity for either a roll-out of the brand or possibly conversion to other mid-market food and drink concepts.”
