This business is a fast casual takeaway restaurant and commercial kitchen located in a vibrant, affluent area of South Orange County. Located to several national franchises, this location has fantastic demographics. It feeds hungry bellies from several affluent local neighborhoods, many nearby hotels and businesses, and the customers and staff from OC's most popular auto center!
The space has a lot to offer, with a floor-to-ceiling glass storefront for increased exposure and a medium-sized dining room, currently being used as a staging area for takeout orders. The order counter features ample under counter storage and a single terminal POS system for excellent record keeping. The decor is spartan, a blank canvas in need of a new concept and vibe. The space also features a fantastic production kitchen, including a large hot line with a 12ft+ hood, two storage rooms, and a prep workstation to accommodate both regular business and catering/meal prep simultaneously. Finally, there is a large pass-through window to the front of the house for increased productivity for high volume to-go orders.
The current owner bought this great location less than a year ago, and did absolutely nothing with it; he does not focus on the business, and the space is poorly maintained with unwelcoming decor. Plus, the fried food concept is out of touch with both the local market and broader industry trends. This location has fantastic potential: bring a better concept to the space and save huge money and time on city permitting, buildout, and lengthy health department approvals. Instead, invest your capital in advertising, marketing (leverage social media and the Internet), and delivery service platforms to maximize revenue! Partner with the local business community in and around the densely populated auto center, and (for gosh sakes) apply for a 41 beer and wine license to increase profit margins. The space needs an owner operator that is dedicated to capturing patrons in this high traffic area and putting money in their pockets!
This business sits in an ideal location for a meal prep company, catering company, or your winning fast casual concept! If you are looking to minimize buildout cost and maximize sales in a high traffic location then contact the Agent today!
