Growth & expansion opportunities:

This restaurant has quite a bit of opportunity to grow. Currently the operational hours are limited. A new owner could double the number of hours the restaurant is open and still maintain normal operating hours for a restaurant. Additionally, the local economic development authority is active and looking for opportunities to invest in local businesses. Funds from the EDA could be use to update offerings, increase hours, or do renovations to the building. Catering opportunities are plentiful and by bringing on more staff those opportunities could be capitalized upon.
