Property Information


Business is housed in a new, 3,600 square foot building. It sits on excellent highway frontage and has plenty of parking space, on a large lot.

Growth & expansion opportunities:

Although the business has established a loyal following, there are still excellent avenues for additional growth. The restaurant is open for lunch and dinner, so adding breakfast would be a nice addition. Another good revenue stream would be the addition of catering services. The business does some catering now, but by no means focuses on that service. With technology moving so fast, another possibility would be adding on-line ordering. Currently, 38% of the business is carry-out, so adding this makes sense. A final idea may be the addition of adding a beer & wine license. The restaurant has never offered adult beverages, but it may be an option going forward.


Over the last six plus decades, the business has built a loyal following within the region and an excellent reputation across the State. Not a lot of direct competition in the community, but some in-direct competition in the way of fast food, convenience store offerings, etc.

Reason for selling:

Owner looking to semi-retire; pursue other interests.

Support & Training:

Will train for 3 weeks @ $0 cost. In addition to the necessary state and federal required business licenses, a food handling certification is also required.
