Cafe & Coffee Shop business for sale in Canberra Airport

  • Cafe & Coffee Shop
  • Canberra Airport ACT 2609
  • SOLD

Building and business must be sold.

Motivated owners moving overseas.

The combined asset is located in what arguably is Canberra's most significant residential apartment precinct - Republic - and features 5 of Canberra's Tallest Buildings.

The precinct consists of 1267 residential units and 152 hotel rooms. Cafe Society is essentially the only stand-alone coffee shop in the mega complex and the café has a stunning northerly aspect.

The owner has ignored our instructions to list the business and the building at $1,000,000 on a walk-in walk basis and has opted to sell via auction; such is the urgency of his timeline.

The owner invested about $180,000 in the cafe fit out to get it established - it's fully operational; the only missing asset is passion and business drive; that's where you come in!

If you bid and are successful, all the business assets mentioned above will be included in the sale price, and an attached asset list is provided within the auction agreement.

Pricing expectations are below our appraisal at around $900,000 for the building and the business.

The zoning of the building falls within the Territory Plan and is zoned CZ2. The crown lease purpose clause is broad and allows drink establishments, restaurants, cafes and shops.

We have spoken to the Judo Bank, and they are comfortable with lending 80% of the purchase price to approved bidders: Contact local lending specialist crystal.gan at Crystal Gan on 0448 871 245

In his own words, his distractions with coaching rugby and travelling overseas have resulted in the business failing to realise its full potential.
