Location, Location, Location!!
This coffee shop is as close as you can get to the water without getting wet! Located in a popular beach town on Pacific Coast Highway, this gourmet coffee shop is exposed to millions of visitors a year, as well as the local upscale, beach-loving, thirsty clientele. These coffee connoisseurs serve fresh coffee (they roast their own!) and baked goods. They sweat the details: the equipment is top-of-the-line, the water pH levels are perfect, and the roasting techniques are dialed-in to deliver the perfect cup o' joe.
The Seller cut no corners on the buildout, investing well over $300K into the space. They were just beginning to build clientele in late 2019 and in 2020 the pandemic hit. The competition closed down, and they earned the loyalty of all those clients by continuing to serve top notch brew - check out their 5-star Yelp reviews! They even recently upgraded to a bigger roaster to meet increased demand. All the equipment is less than 2 years old and under warranty. The business keeps excellent records via their POS system.
The owners have fulltime corporate jobs, and are unable to dedicate the time to truly grow. Therefore, it's time to sell to a dedicated owner-operator or coffee entrepreneur. Most of the growth is still untapped. Ramp up the wholesale business by delivering samples to local restaurants and actively marketing the brand. Apply for a type 41 beer and wine license to offer evening wine and cheese plates. If you're an owner-operator, run the store and save $40K a year. We all know the money, time, and frustration required to build out a space; you can deplete your funds before even opening the doors! This owner has done all that difficult and expensive work for you; save your funds for working capital and marketing!
If you are looking for a premier location only steps from the beach, then this coffee shop is the ideal space. Beachside opportunities are rare and the demand is high, so reach out to the Agent today!
