EMERALD CREEK ICE CREAM
Established in 2009, the Emerald Creek Ice-Creamery has built an enviable reputation for supreme quality and is arguably Northern Queenslands premier ice-cream and sorbet manufacturer. Now, more than 10 years since inception, the owners have decided it is time for them to retire, and a rare opportunity exists for someone to take this founding company and expand it with unlimited opportunities.
In todays swiftly evolving commercial landscape, it is rare to find a business that straddles multiple industries, but whether you want to be in tourism and hospitality, own a café / restaurant, or be in food manufacturing, Emerald Creek Ice-Creamery satisfies every category. Located on a major arterial road, at 3946 Kennedy Highway, just outside of Mareeba, the Emerald Creek Ice-Creamery is perfectly positioned to take advantage of the thousands of vehicle movements per day between Cairns and the Atherton Tablelands.
The custom-built Visitor Centre currently has a seating capacity of 60 places, either in the fully air-conditioned centre itself or on the shaded veranda overlooking the lush tropical grounds, with plenty of room for additional table placements if desired. A large, fully fenced garden also provides a perfect aspect for casual relaxing under shaded trees.
The Emerald Creek Ice-Creamery enjoys a 4.5 Star rating on both TripAdvisor and Google Reviews, while also boasting a TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence for the last 5 years running (2015, 2016, 2017, 2018, 2019) with recent admission into the TripAdvisor Hall of Fame.
Frequented by both local and tourist visitors, Emerald Creek Ice-Creamery has a solid customer base of repeat and referral business as well as appearing on the most widely used tourist map by Panorama Publications. This publication is dispensed by all major Tourist Bureaus and car rental companies. Self-drive tourists, Grey Nomads and small bus tours form a high proportion of tourist visitation numbers.
Made with only top-quality ingredients, the Emerald Creek Ice-Creamery produces over 40 flavours of Ice-Cream and Sorbet. The Ice-cream is made with pure cream and full cream milk producing superior taste and texture. Sorbets are water based and the flavour range is based around the large variety of locally grown Tableland fruit. A total of 30 ice-cream flavours and 13 sorbet flavours form the available range. Each recipe is unique to Emerald Creek Ice-Creamery and has been honed and refined over many years in order to achieve a perfect palate blend. Products also provide gluten-free and lactose free options for customers as well as being allergy aware.
All products are manufactured on the premises, centralising and optimising workflow and equipment. Although initially only selling ice-cream, the business has diversified into other areas including fudges, jams & marmalades, relishes and chutneys, which are also all made on-site! And the Visitor Centre also has coffee, sweets, dried fruits, Biltong, and giftware, plus much, much more!
It is rare to find a business that already has a diverse income base and yet has so much untapped potential to further income streams. Expansion opportunities include, but are not limited to: introduction of lunches, establishment of retail outlets in Cairns and Port Douglas, franchising etc.
