This very well established and profitable Mosman Cafe & Bakery has the endless potential to expand its cafe offering as well as its bakery capability (if so desired) to truly multiply its overall sales and increase its profitability. Alternatively, you can just focus on the cafe. Currently taking just over $15k per week with 20+ kg of coffee.
The cafe side of the business has a full commercial kitchen with a grease trap and exhaust system and gas range. The dining area is spacious and well laid out, the shop has a high spec fit out with high quality fixtures and fittings. It has a prime street-front position that also boasts a huge amount of passing traffic each day.
The Cafe serves a range of breakfast and lunch dishes and has coffee sales of around 20kg per week. When the previous owner was more present in the business this retail side of the business was doing twice as much as now and coffee sales were over 60kg. There has been no change to the level of competition in the area and there is a huge opportunity for a new working owner to rebuild these sales.
The bakery side of the business has not had the focus it requires or demands to catapult the sales and profitability of this business to its glorious past levels. The premises are fully equipped to cater for any size bakery operation – from simply catering for the cafe or expanding into a large wholesale operation. Tons of room, bench space, single rack and 4 deck ovens, dough prover (6 tray), moulder, divider and sheeter, flour mixer, cool rooms and other bakery equipment makes this a ready-to-go wholesale bakery operation if so inclined. A loading dock and plenty of storage and 24/7 access is also a plus.
The bakery has plenty of room to expand. Due to other commitments the current owner has scaled this back as he is unable to dedicate enough time to that side of the business. A new owner could further utilise the current staff, equipment and storage to grow the wholesale business. There is very little wholesale competition in this and surrounding areas. Additional back-of-house area is available (approx. 70 sqm) for any expansion plans and requirements (additional rent).
Bakery/Cafe opening hours are breakfast and lunch 7 days a week. Wholesale Baking starts around 3.30pm until 11.30pm.
The motivated vendor has significantly reduced the price of the business to sell and is open to reasonable offers. This is a great opportunity to take on a business that has plenty of room for future growth. The equipment value alone is worth the purchase price.
The opportunity exists to return the business to an owner/operator model. Build up the wholesale side of the business, which has been reduced significantly as the current owner cannot dedicate the time to this side of the business, as well as improving the retail/Cafe side of the business to see an improvement in sales and profit. Capitalise on the huge membership of one of the busiest gyms in proximity to the business and expand the trading hours to incorporate dinners in an area that has limited choice in cuisines.
