Property Information


1,750 sq. ft. building. The business occupies the first floor of a large historic building. The building is located on the retail section of a main street in an affluent and desirable area. There is on-street parking and adjacent to the building ample free municipal parking. Lease is assumable.

Growth & expansion opportunities:

There are several areas for growth any one of which would significantly impact revenues. Currently the business does not offer alcoholic beverages or catering. It does very little in the way of private-label or retail products, which could be expanded. The business enjoys a strong brand name, which paves the way for extending the brand beyond the physical store. Examples of this include off-site sales (i.e. food truck) or multi-unit growth.


The business is located in a destination-like entertainment & shopping district. Therefore, there are a variety of eateries to choose from, but none have the same format, universal appeal, raving fans or landmark status. In addition, the business is set up for absentee ownership. That is an attribute not often found in small businesses, especially those in the food service segment.

Reason for selling:

The seller is ready to retire and move out west to be with family.

Support & Training:

The seller offers a minimum of 2 weeks of training to provide for a smooth transition and is open to consulting on a longer-term basis.
