They user their POS computer system (with printer and cash drawer) for excellent record keeping. The space also provides a kitchen equipped with work tables, a triple bay sink, plenty of dry storage, and a cozy small desk to handle all your clerical needs!
The owner is no longer able to be active in the business. She has a critical illness and has relocated to New England for the proper care, so the time has come to find a successor. There is a lot of room for a Buyer to step in and grow: the current owners have virtually no online presence and minimally engaged social media followers, so there’s plenty of room to build a digital presence. Current ownership does little advertising: market your platters, advertise delivery, leverage all the delivery services (seller uses none), accept online orders and increase revenues! Save your money on buildout and spend your capital on brand building through advertising and marketing. Finally, keep the doors open: the owner opens minimal hours, 6 days/week - open earlier than 11am and serve coffee and tea to the locals.
If you are looking for a turnkey opportunity to grow, with extremely low rent in a fantastic location, then this cheese shop is your chance to step into entrepreneurship and become your own boss.
