About the Business
• Has been consistently profitable, providing a very good return for the owners – full financials will be made available to genuinely interested parties.
• Has the space for an expansion of the current business activities, as the rear yard is largely unused, and the outbuilding, currently being used as a one-bedroom accommodation unit, could be converted to commercial activities.
• Is in a well preserved, historic building, which is within a designated conservation area of a pretty town, in the beautiful Southern Highlands. It’s in an area of outstanding beauty and a popular destination for both tourists and day-trippers from Sydney.
• Is located in the middle of the main street, with ample free parking nearby and directly opposite to the train station, which is the main line between Sydney and Melbourne.
• Currently offers a traditional café fare, with a separate pizza section and a good coffee offer. The business could be taken more upmarket, converted to an artisan café or indeed converted to other retail or service operation.
• In addition to the full-time involvement of one of the owners, currently employs 1 fully trained staff member and some part-time casual staff, which varies in number depending on seasonality.
• Well represented in all of the main social media platforms and has achieved a 4.5/5 rating on Facebook.
The business has been in the hands of the current owners for decades.
