Emma McKay launched The Salty Crow in Lowestoft’s London Street North in August 2022 after retiring from the NHS to follow her dreams of owning a cafe.
But now, 18 months after opening, she has decided to sell up and pursue a new career in aesthetic treatments.
In a statement shared on social media, Ms McKay said: “So after much deliberation and thought I have decided to sell The Salty Crow.
“As many of you know I am a nurse by profession and I have decided to pursue a venture that satisfies my passions and uses my skills of many years – while still learning new ones along this journey.
“I would like to thank all of my amazing loyal customers and their furry friends for supporting me and putting up with my singing over the past 18 months and creating a real community warm feeling in the cafe.
“I will absolutely miss you.
“However, if you want to come to be pampered, brighten your smile, erase or rewind the years or prevent life and the elements from taking their toll inside and out, come and see me.”
Paul Hubbard Commercial is now listing the cafe for an asking price of £25,000, including goodwill, fixtures, fittings, and equipment.
Its current lease runs until July 2025, with a total of £4,740 rent payable.
