This café was a brand new build-out in late 2016. It is part of a regional franchise that has a clear step-by-step process for success. The café offers coffee, tea, hot-chocolate, almond milk, iced coffee, espresso, donuts, and more. It is a popular hang-out of college students and locals in Harrisonburg due to its proximity to James Madison University.
The café has 5 part-time and 2 full-time employees. The owners live out of state at the moment so a new owner-operator would likely be able to save on payroll expenses. The café is doing around $15-20K in revenue per month with only a little advertising. An active owner-operator would easily be able to take this business to the next level, and would have no build-out costs, since all furniture, fixtures, and equipment are new and the location is beautifully branded!

The business is situated in a high rise mixed use building with apartments above and restaurants on the main level.
Currently the business is run remotely by the owners who live out of state. Although the business has well trained staff in place, the operation would benefit from an active owner operator who would be able to drive more business growth. Marketing has been minimal due to the owners both having primary day-jobs, so a new and improved advertising push would certainly drive new business to the café. The other franchises generate ~$30K/mo. in revenue without much extra effort. A focus on offsite events/catering would also allow the business tap into an untouched market.
There are no other cafes in the immediate area that compete with this business.
