Very Profitable Restaurant


Listing ID: 1158


Within 1 hour of Halifax - South Shore


Established in 1985, this very profitable 64 seat restaurant is the perfect size business to manage, either as husband and wife combo or a single owner/operator to hire someone to support the needs of the day to day. There are a total of 6 staff, in addition to the owners. The menu is straight forward and can easily be taught to someone with a desire the learn. The owner was not a qualified chef when he began 35 years ago. The location of this business is ideal, in a high traffic area, shopping plaza, surrounded by many commercial and institutional operations nearby that support ongoing demand. Located next to the only NSLC in the area now selling cannabis products, as well as a new 40,000 sqft retail development. This location is a commercial hub in the area. This restaurant is by far the most profitable restaurant opportunity we have ever worked with, based on the price being requested! You can have your original investment back in 1 year. Example: - $120k down and $230k financed. - approximately $40k in payments means $185k pre tax left over. The owners are happy to remain on-site as long as it takes and support a Buyer during the transition. They have agreed to have a negotiated amount of funds retained in a lawyer's trust account for a determined period of time, until the new owner is 100% confident they can run the business on their own.
