DOES YOUR KITCHEN RULE?
IF YOU’VE ALWAYS WANTED TO CALL THE SHOTS IN KITCHEN, HERE’S YOUR CHANCE
MOVE ON UP FROM SOUS CHEF OR EVEN HEAD CHEF TO BECOME EXECUTIVE CHEF OF YOUR OWN RESTAURANT
AND DID WE MENTION YOU’LL BE LIVING IN AN AREA THAT THOUSANDS OF TOURISTS PAY BIG DOLLARS TO VISIT FOR JUST A FEW WEEKS A YEAR? DUNSBOROUGH – THE JEWEL IN THE SOUTHWEST’S CROWN
Every chef dreams of taking the reins and running their own kitchen. Experimenting with new dishes; creating the menu; overseeing the cooking and making sure every service is a winning one. But few get the chance – not only is the cost prohibitive but applying for a liquor licence is time consuming and expensive, and automatically opposed by the WA Police and Department of Health.
That means that rarely does an opportunity like this come along. This is your chance to own an award winning restaurant:
A GOLD PLATE WINNER for “Licensed Casual Dining, Regional”!
A GOLD PLATE NOMINATION for “Wine List of the Year” – yes, it has that sought-after liquor license, which also allows it to sell beers, ciders, spirits and cocktails!
The license not only covers the restaurant and courtyard, but there’s even a special extension so customers can have a drink without needing to order a meal.
That’s well over $10,000 in value alone.
Started two years ago by people just like you, who’d thought about opening their own restaurant for decades while working in hospitality, this is a business which has only started to bloom, with an enviable reputation for locally sourced, seasonal and house-made produce which brings locals and tourists alike back time after time, as shown by its excellent online reviews on TripAdvisor.
The restrictions on new licences means there’s virtually NO REAL COMPETITION.
The venue is ideal, with plenty of capacity to handle the peak season, but the ability to close off the outside area in the colder, quieter months creating a bustling atmosphere inside. The business has served 140 people in one evening (achieved by turning tables over and maximising the courtyard area), so there’s plenty of scope for big numbers without the big rent.
The vendors have purchased everything you need to handle these numbers:
Near-new kitchen equipment, well maintained and kept clean (that’s why it got the Gold Plate in health)
Solid wooden tables that won’t go out of fashion and are there for the long haul.
50 indoor chairs and 25 outdoor chairs, all in good condition.
All the crockery, cutlery and glasswear is of a good quality and keeping with modern trends, whilst also being timeless in style.
There’s even great storage, which most restaurant venues lack, and highly visible signage exposure to two very busy roads. There’s also plenty of parking.
JUST WALK IN AND START GETTING READY FOR THAT NIGHT’S SERVICE – everything you need is provided, included the repeat customers!
Still not convinced?
How many restaurants would allow you to have two days a week off? This one does – it’s closed Sundays and Mondays.
Of course if you wanted to open on Sundays that’s just one of the avenues open to you to quickly boost the turnover. You could start doing lunches, and even breakfasts.
You could operate a catering business from the premises.
Or you might want to add on a pizzeria operation. The original plinth for the pizza oven is still in place so it’s a simple matter of reinstalling a pizza oven.
Want to do even more? The vendors report that the landlords are very easy going and have allowed them to do any alterations they wanted. The freehold for the premises may also be available.
CREATE THE BUSINESS THAT SUITS THE LIFESTYLE YOU WANT
Dunsborough offers arguably the most desirable lifestyle on the planet. Surfing, swimming, boating, fishing, exploring the countryside in the magnificent southwest. Others pay thousands to do this for a few days a year – you can do it every week.
But best of all…
…you’re just in time for the next growth phase!
HUGE POTENTIAL TO INCREASE PROFIT
Tourists will increase: Tourism to the region grows year-on-year. The southwest experienced a nine percent increase in tourist numbers between 2014 and 2015. The Margaret River region won the TripAdvisor.com “Travellers Choice Award” in 2013 in the “Top 10 Destinations, South Pacific” category.
Locals will increase: Housing developments in Dunsborough have the potential to relocate approximately 1,000 people in the next 12 months. Over the past five years the southwest’s average annual population growth rate was 2.8 percent, compared to a national growth rate for the same period of just 1.7 percent. The region has featured in the top five growing regions nationally every year since 2004/05, and is expected to grow to over 216,000 people by 2027.
This opportunity is ideally suited to an ambitious chef wanting to seize control of their career and really make a name for themselves in the industry. But if you need a little help getting started the vendors – who are off to open another restaurant in a different town – are prepared and able to assist in the running of the restaurant for a negotiated period.
This is a rare chance to take control of your cheffing career and step up to the top job, with all the creative freedom you’ve ever wanted.
And at a price LESS THAN THE VALUE OF THE PLANT AND EQUIPMENT if bought new!
