This Cafe Business for Sale has been busy through the entire pandemic. Located in Dandenong South, it has a most excellent location. It is at the entrance to a shopping centre which sits at the intersection of 2 major roads through the area, so there are huge amounts of cars passing daily. It is very easily accessible from both of the main roads and is surrounded by a good commercial and residential mix. There is plenty of parking in the shopping centre car park.
Established 4 years, this cafe has a modern fit-out with bifold doors that open up to an outdoor seating area, allowing for alfresco dining. Inside there is a large dining room with normal seating capacity of 64. However, the vendor has invested in the outdoor seating area and this area will be able to seat up to 50 people.
There is a commercial kitchen that allows this cafe to serve delicious meals for breakfast, lunch and brunch as well as doing outside catering.
Vendor has adapted the business to the current situation and started online sales with 3 ordering apps and their own website and store to take advantage of people isolating locally. This has worked really well and 1/3 of sales are now through delivery and the takeaway business is stronger than pre-Covid, this is in spite of the closures and retail restrictions that have been in place.
Run under management with 2 full-time staff and 10 casual staff.
Normal trading times were Monday to Friday 6am to 5pm, Saturday and Sunday 8am to 3pm. However, trading times were extended in order to capture more essential workers.
This business has shown a solid turnover of approx. $12,500 per week (takings were $15,000 pw before Covid-19). Rent for this outstanding location and large premises is $1,939 per week including GST and outgoings with a lease of 9 years commenced January 2016.
Plenty of potential in this business as there is an option to have a liquor licence and to extend trading hours to serve dinner.
Vendor has adapted the business to suit the current situation, so it is in good shape and sales will flourish as the lockdown ends and customers are allowed to dine in.
Vendor is selling because he is planning to move to central Victoria after Christmas, so is open to all offers. This business is well worth an inspection.
