Walk-up Ice Cream Shop
IntroductionMajor Price Drop - $250,000.This Ice Cream Shop has been selling ice cream here for over 60 years. It was a franchised free-standing walk-up stand selling ice cream thru 2 windows, now it is an independent, still selling some of the best soft & hard ice cream products including shakes, slush’s, splits, floats, take-home cakes, flying saucers, and chip witches – thru those same front windows – 12 months a year. (Of course, you can buy this business and close 3 months in the winter – but maybe you can sell other products too like coffee, soups, etc.)Why SellingNow it could be your turn to own this kind of business. It’s a great family business. When needed there seems to never be a shortage of great help in this affluent town. Many kids entering high school can’t wait till a spot opens up (isn’t that refreshing in this market environment!)The current Owner is selling because he’s too busy with his other interests. He bought the business and property because a family member lived in the area with 3 teenage children – perfect workers for a business like this. They no longer live there so the need for a business so far from the Owners home isn’t necessary.Did I mention he runs this business as an absentee Owner. He only comes to the store 1-2 days a week for an hour or so. (It’s possible any business like this would do even better with a full-time working Owner).

New Owner working full time is estimated to increase sales to /- $500,000. At this volume, the Owner’s Cash flow is estimated to be /- $100,000.This is 37.3% higher than 2021’s volume. Management feels with a working Owner or full-time manager this volume is doable.
