This café is in a beachside community on PCH, at a fantastic location with a great deal of traffic. This excellent location is anchored by excellent franchise tenants, with ample parking in an easy in-and-out parking lot, and quick access to major freeways.
This hip, local spot is a hit with the beach dwelling crowd, and the online 4.5+ star reviews prove it. As you enter the space, you are greeted with high ceilings, beach vibe lighting and decor, and branded merchandise. The owner invested $300k into the space into equipment, décor, and branding: the facility is equipped with a 12+ foot hood, 500 gallon in-ground grease trap and virtually all brand-new equipment. The business also offers excellent record keeping with a new Clover POS system.
The owner got way ahead of himself, and is spread extremely thin, as he has numerous other restaurants. An owner operator can step in and grow the current business (keep the brand, name, concept, menu and recipes), or bring their own winning concept. Lots of opportunity for growth: they currently close early, but their CUP allows food sales until 10pm – stay open for dinner! Additionally, make extra money by ramping up the catering and delivery service business. Advertise at (or partner with) the massive nearby medical complex to get food to staff and patient families. There is also plenty of headroom to grow their online media presence, as they currently have less than 2,000 followers on Instagram and Facebook: social media should be a top priority when advertising.
We all know how expensive and frustrating it is to build out a space. The owner has done all the difficult, expensive work, so you can spend your valuable cash on marketing and advertising. This café is in a premier location with an excellent lease, so don’t hesitate to step in and feed all the beach goers and their hungry bellies!
