Business Description

Upscale restaurant in a prime location that has been in operation for 15 plus years. The current owner has developed a following at the restaurant over time that continues to visit.

Property Information


The restaurant is is a great location is an excellent area where there are plenty of customers needing high end dining. The building was totally remodeled for the specific purpose of housing this restaurant. There is a main dining room with a bar.

Growth & expansion opportunities:

There is always potential for growth with a new owner that has fresh ideas and fresh energy. The current owner has 30 plus years of experience in the business but as time has passed he does not have the same energy for continuous improvement as he did in his younger days. A new owner would bring this energy and could build on the solid base with some new concepts. A new owner could also put some emphasis on marketing in different ways including social media efforts, which could be improved upon. The event space could be featured more to bring in additional revenue. In addition to these items online ordering and reservation systems could help boost revenues.


This restaurant is in a prime location in an area of town where there are very few high end restaurants which means there is not much competition. There are many fast food and fast casual restaurants and also many bars in the area. However, there are only one or two other high end restaurants that are true competitors. This is a nice situation because for folks that want to stay in the area and have a nice meal, the options are limited. Combine this with the level of service and quality of food and it leads to an excellent customer base.

Reason for selling:

Owner is ready to retire after 30 plus years in the restaurant business.

Support & Training:

Many business people take clients to the restaurant daily to conduct important affairs in an upscale atmosphere that is quiet and relaxing.
