Business Overview:

For over 30 years, this upscale catering and cocktails business has shown consistent profits. Specializing in elegant and tasteful events from weddings to corporate parties, menus range from breakfast to picnic specials. With both catering and liquor licenses, the owner has begun offering cocktail-only events without food. This is a great area for growth and promises to be a fantastic revenue earner.

Located in a strip mall, the company occupies 3 bays at 2,583 square feet, and is leased for $1,750 per month, or $21,000 per year. The large space allows for the 7 kitchen staff to prepare up to 1,200 plates per day. Currently, the busy months of May and June see just 900 plates/day with the remaining months seeing 600 plates/day. This allows for easy growth by up to 50% without the need for additional space!

Aside from the kitchen staff, there are 2 office staff and 2 packing specialists, as well as 25 part-time event workers. The seller does not prepare food, but does handle billing and meeting with prospective clients, who are 60% commercial and 40% residential. Of these clients, not one makes up more than 10% of sales.

Looking to work on new business ventures, the seller will finance 10% of the $385,000 purchase price. Contributing a 10% down payment of $38,500, a new owner could see a first year’s profit of $68,150 after debts.
