A Franchise in the Making!
This Thai style rolled ice cream shop is located in a very busy center in Orange County, anchored by major national tenants. The owners have done a great job building out the location. The space is well designed to accommodate birthdays, families and large groups. Its' high ceilings, hip blue LED lighting, rustic tables, and colorful chairs form a fashionable interior design. The kitchen & equipment are pristine, organized and well maintained. They have good books and records with their POS system, have been featured on major culinary websites, boast a 4.5 star Yelp rating, and has a great social media base!
A combination of circumstances have forced the owners to sell not only the location but the entire concept. They are very time constrained: with a newborn infant, they launched this store and new concept. They then opened a second location, further straining their ability to work both "in the business" and "on the business". Opening that store also depleted their working capital, leaving little left to launch a fresh brand through advertising and marketing.
There are several ways to buy. Pickup both locations, and grow from there: inject time, sweat, experience, and working capital to truly launch this brand. Their social media is off to a great start, but launching a new brand requires expertise and investment in addition to digital marketing. Thai style rolled ice cream just arrived in the U.S., so it's still brand new in many So Cal markets. Alternatively, pick up one (or both) stores, and bring your winning ice cream, gelato or dessert concept to this ready-to-go space.
This rolled ice cream shop is a great concept: straightforward to operate, with inexpensive food costs, in a space popular with hungry customers. It's simply screaming for right Buyer who knows how to scale from here; it's definitely a new franchise in the making. Questions? Contact your Agent today!!
