Turn key cafe and sandwich shop business for sale
OWNER of BUILDING currently OWNS building & business and would like to SELL THE BUSINESS & RENT THE SPACE TO THE NEW BUSINESS OWNER WHILE THEY TAKE OVER LANDLORD ROLE & LIVE ON TOP FLOOR.
The cafe is located in the heart of downtown Easton, PA & is open for both breakfast and lunch, offering selection of coffees, breakfast meals, sandwiches, salads and soup. Specializing in a variety of coffees including espresso, caf lattes, cappuccino, flavored coffees and iced coffee, provides a coffee bar. There is outside seating during spring/summer/fall with a complete cozy outdoor courtyard.
The restaurant has charm, coziness, and feels like home. The setting offers the perfect get-away in one of the most up and coming, engaging, walkable cities within Lehigh Valley, steps from the center of the city and a home run for future enhancements with a new owner as Lafayette College is within a stone's throw on what is referred to as "Millionaire's Row" as it is and once was the site of opulent Victorian-era mansions. There is a small fireplace and cozy chairs in the back and the ambiance makes you simply feel at home. The tables in front are a great place to people watch. There is a three seasonal patio out back if you're looking for a place where you won't be watched yourself.
The owners would like to step into retirement and enjoy Easton as guests while seeing their hard work & asset grow with what the future has to offer. Many wonderful enhancements and ideas can explode this business based on size, location, future emergence, and potential within the city and venue itself. In addition, if you get into the business and location now, by default, your success will be instant due to Lafayette College, which announced last summer, that the black box theater will be named for former Lafayette president Daniel H. Weiss and his wife, Sandra Jarva Weiss, thanks to a donation by the Board of Trustees honoring the couple's eight years of service to the College and community.
Work is already under way on a major transformation of the interior of the former Mohican building, across North Third Street from the former Case's property, into a television/video production studio, theater rehearsal studio, smart classrooms, faculty offices, and student gathering spaces. That work is scheduled to be completed this summer.
The arts campus project reflects Lafayette's commitment to make programs in the creative arts an essential feature of the College and ensure that they are known for their outstanding quality, presence, and relevance to both the campus and larger community. It also advances the collaborative efforts of Lafayette and Easton to improve a highly traveled and visible entranceway to the College, the city, and the commonwealth.
Construction booms of the past are still visible today in the magnificent mansions found among Easton's three National Historic Districts. In addition, Lafayette College, founded in 1832, is still the educational beacon for the area. Carrel factors is down the block in center city.
There's more to Easton, however, than its past. Because of its position on the Delaware River, just 50 miles North of Philadelphia and 70 miles west of New York, Easton is a center of American industry. Today, artists escaping the larger urban centers are reclaiming the old buildings.
A walk through downtown Easton reveals dozens of commercial galleries, artists' lofts, and antique shops. This artistic revolution has resulted in Easton's recognition as one of the 100 Best Small Arts Towns in America. Add a strong commitment to healthcare, affordable housing, safe streets, and recreational assets, and there's no doubt that Easton is poised to enter the 21st century as proudly as it did the 19th.
Owners would like to include everything within the restaurant as part of the sale from furniture to equipment to inventory to name and menu.
Potential Buyers can consider so many wonderful enhancements that the current owners know will increase revenue and sales enormously but would rather enjoy their retirement and grandchildren at this point while they live upstairs and see the hard work of the new tenant and business owner explode into the future with items such as:
-Breakfast enhancements on menu and kitchen
-Lunch menus enhancements
- Coffee enhancements
-Dessert, pastry, enhancements
- Dinner menu
-Upgrades to style and design
Please call to further discuss to see if this is a good fit for budget, time frame, and venue. We look forward to all of your inquires and questions.
