Great opportunity to own a popular café in a quaint and historic Northern VA Town. The café offers breakfast and lunch services (with the ability to offer dinner services) to its loyal local clientele and hundreds of thousands of visitors. The café uses fresh ingredients from local vendors, but also features indulgent imported treats. The café offers light fare like soups, salads, sandwiches, and desserts in a charming and bright setting.  Their recently updated menu offers traditional favorites with a contemporary flair. One of their signature items is the bread pudding topped with a warm brandy butter sauce. The soups change every day and range from gazpacho to corn chowder to lobster bisque, all of which are fan favorites. The cafe offers dining inside in one of two cozy dining rooms as well as outdoor seating and even has a designated carryout area for those on the run. The decor makes customers feel relaxed and right at home and you will too! The café is well known by the local business owners, they are a certified Prince William County Government vendor and Trip Advisor has awarded the café a Certificate of Excellence 2015 & 2016 and have received 4.5 of 5 stars there and 4 of 5 stars on Yelp, they were even featured in the Northern VA Magazine and were interviewed by Fox 5. This cafe is perfect for a first time buyer with limited business and food industry experience or a true restaurateur. There is lots of opportunity for easy growth by simply expanding business hours, offering more menu items and getting into catering, which has been requested a lot, but the current owners have been happy with the business as it has been. The owners have priced the business for a quick sale due to family and will entertain all reasonable offers. If you are interested contact us today for more details.
Facilities:The 1,000 sq ft café is located in a multi-tenant building that is in the heart of a quaint and historic town. The café is situated in a courtyard between the two main streets in the town so there is a lot of customer traffic. The space is leased for approx. $2,250/mo. The Café has 2 dining rooms, a carry-out room, an outdoor patio, storage room, and attic. The atmosphere is very welcoming and relaxing.
Competition:Standard competition for the food industry in the local community. This business does have a unique menu and a very loyal customer base that keeps them coming back from the great food and relaxing environment and café setting.
Growth Potential:There is tremendous opportunity for growth by simply expanding the hours of operation to include Mondays and evenings as the business is only open for breakfast and lunch. A dinner service would significantly increase sales especially if a new owner obtained an ABC License as profit margins are huge on alcohol sales in comparison to just food. There is additional growth potential through catering; though a standing catering arrangement is in place with a local cruise/tour company, other individual catering opportunities are available, but the current owners have chosen not to accept due to personal commitments. With few local caterers, there is certainly a demand for small-medium sized event catering. Physical expansion is possible with adjoining or adjacent space possibly becoming available. Additional space could be leased to increase both service area and storage for the café or could be used as a catering preparation area.
Training/Support:Seller will provide necessary training and support.
Seller Financing:Available depending on the final purchase price, terms and qualifications of the buyer.
Sale Reason:Family.
