The owners of the six-strong S&M Café business – the London-based sausage and mash concept – have put the business up for sale, M&C Report understands. The management team led by founder Kevin Finch and Court Cavendish, a 50% shareholder, have asked Christie & Co, the property specialist, to sound out potential buyers. The level of profits produced by the group is not clear – ebitda is thought to be below £0.5m. The group has an entirely leasehold estate comprising outlets in Islington, Leadenhall Market, The O2, Portbello Road, Smithfield and Spitalfields. Simon Chaplin, a director at Christie & Co, told M&C the business would make a good addition to an existing chain-restaurant stable or could be appropriate for an investor looking for a platform to build upon. Finch, managing director, founded S&M Café – dubbed a “designer greasy spoon” – in 2002. Cavendish bought its stake in the business in 2007.
