Why has this business been successful?

The current owner has invested in renovations allowing for increased seating capacity and ability to serve substantial meals contributing to an increase in revenue. The floor space is ideal for larger sittings, both small groups and large and could comfortably accommodate evening functions. Key staff are employed and run the day to day operations with two senior chefs preparing all food in-house, a senior head barista, floor staff and casuals, most of whom are experienced hospitality professionals, allowing for a smooth transition upon takeover.

With the recent addition of a liquor license to complement the lunch menu, there is an excellent opportunity to expand into evening service and functions. At present, there are very few Queenscliff evening dining options, particularly in the family-friendly category, and this cafe is ideally positioned to take a large share of this growing market.

The cafe has strong links with the local community, providing a weekly lunch run for staff and students of the towns two primary schools. Between 70-100 lunches can be ordered each week of term, generating a significant amount of additional brand recognition and flow on trade from the local community. The business has showcased in the media via Melbourne Broadsheet and Channel 9 Postcards television show. It is also well known to the many residents that reside in surrounding areas of Ocean Grove, Portarlington, Geelong, Melbourne holiday-makers and tourists that visit throughout the year.

The Queenscliff Ferry and regular events such as the Queenscliff Music Festival, Blues Train, Lowlight Festival, and Thomas Big Day Out bring constant foot traffic to the area, resulting in a steady stream of customers throughout the year.
