Facilities:There is an option to buy the property as well as the business. The property receives a rental of USD3500 per month from the business and there are 2 other tenants paying USD900 per month in total ie total rental income is USD4400 per month on just the property investment which is a 10% annual rental yield for the landlord. The business has fridges, bakery equipment, shelving, tills, aircons, office, display fridges, catering equipment and signage.
Competition:A large shopping mall opened up about 5 miles away but had no impact on the turnover because of ample parking on grade outside the front door of the shop and the fact that the business is well established in the area.

Sale Reason:Seller is a property developer - this business is non-core to the seller's main business
