This restaurant is your classic short order diner, serving good old fashioned American fare at great prices. They serve breakfast, lunch and dinner through a menu with wide variety: pancakes, eggs, french toast and breakfast burritos in the morning, and hot and cold sandwiches, burgers and fries, salads, and meals for lunch and dinner. There’s something on the menu for everybody, and the business has a loyal following that delivered $1M+ of revenue with $220k+ of profit last year.
The restaurant has a spacious, old-school diner feel. It features well-maintained, comfortable booth seating throughout the store, as well as a few outdoor tables to enjoy the So Cal sun. The drive through keeps the business hopping, even when the dining room is unavailable due to a pandemic. There are two cooklines, both with hoods, one is enormous. There is plenty of refrigeration (including a sizeable walk-in) and freezer space, as well as ample dry storage in the back. The building features rear access for deliveries, and dual bathrooms with outdoor access. In short, it’s an excellent, well-equipped location.
It’s high time for the owner to retire, and she is looking for the right Buyer to continue the business. She runs a profitable but old-school operation, so there is plenty of growth opportunity for an energetic new owner. Replace the old school cash registers with a POS system, so you can track customer purchases and offer loyalty programs for frequent customers. The entire menu is priced like it’s still 1990, so there is a great deal of room to bring prices up to current market and add substantial profit. Also, add a beer and wine license (with permission from the city and the ABC) to boost the bottom line. The website is outdated, so add online ordering and an online menu. The owner does no social media (this restaurant practically cries out for it), and is a member of no delivery services. Tons of room to grow!
