Cafe / Deli "Cash Cow" Southland

Cash Cow

$440,000 - Lower South Island



This very established Café / Deli with a strong loyal customer base and reputation is on the market for the first time since it was established some 15 years ago. The café comes with a full kitchen and can seat up to 90 people, with an average weekly turnover of nearly $18k including GST.

Business Strengths:

  • Strong growth and profitability (sales up 30% in last three years)
  • Strong local reputation
  • Excellent location and fit out
  • Quality food all prepared on site
  • Trip Advisor Top 10 Cafes in the area
  • Fantastic cash flow
  • Opportunity to expand operating hours to include evening dining

The ideal buyer could be:

  • A buyer who has prior hospitality experience and wanting either to relocate or expand
  • A working Chef wanting to own their own growing business

Not the owner of this business works front of house, NOT in the kitchen, so a friendly personality is an asset.

The owner has had over 20 years in the hospitality business and is now looking for a new challenge. The time is right to provide a new owner with the opportunity to grow this very well established and profitable business.

The vendor would provide necessary support to ensure a smooth transition.

Net Surplus $170,000 EBITDA
