Friars Café is a multi-faceted business which in addition to restaurant and modern alfresco dining, is also an outlet for corporate catering and weddings. The business operates daily from 7am to 3pm offering an all-day breakfast and lunch from 11:30am onwards.
Friars Café operates from a beautiful red-brick Gothic Revival former Baptist Church which has been renovated to suit the café. The business was established in 1991 and for almost 30 years, has traded from the same iconic location.
Situated on Fryers Street in Shepparton’s main shopping hub, the building and location provide excellent exposure to passing traffic and is a short walk from Shepparton’s central Maude Street Mall.
The business boasts a beautifully presented restaurant floor that features elegant lancet-arched leadlight windows. The good-sized restaurant can cater for up to 120 diners. There is also upstairs dining available in a beautiful, naturally lit room that can seat up to 14 people. The alfresco dining area can cater for up to approximately 50 people.
Friars Café can cater for all types of events and can be booked for functions and meetings. The business also offers an off-site catering service.
Friars Café operates daily from 7am to 3pm offering breakfast and lunch. Based on the popularity of the local business, extended trading hours to incorporate a dinner menu would increase the potential to earn additional revenue.
There is further opportunity to grow the business with the implementation of a comprehensive marketing plan. A dedicated business website and some local advertising would give the business more exposure to additional potential clientele.
