72 Seat Restaurant With Bar And 56 Seat Patio

CT  Ridgefield  No  Yes  N/A  $199,900 

This is a 72 seat restaurant with bar and 56 seat patio serving an Italian Cuisine.

Located in a busy retail and office park in Ridgefield, CT.

Open for lunch on Friday & Saturday (another opportunity for a new Owner) and serves dinner 7 days a week.

This location was a Chinese restaurant for a long time. Then a new Owner started serving Italian cuisine. Eventually closed and remained closed for 7 months until the current Partnership bought the business in 2015. Business has been growing ever since.

This is a restaurant/bar where you feel comfortable whether you come with friends or by yourself. The Patio seats 56 and is always busy in nice weather. The catering business has been expanding and becoming very popular. Note an interesting ratio – 40% of the business is from the sales in the bar and 60% from the dining room (without catering).

Because of health reasons the Owner can only work a few days per week. (Opportunity for a full time Owner/Operator).

The friendly atmosphere, the good service and food along with the popular patio makes this restaurant a frequent eating/drinking place.

Hours of operation are: Monday – Thursday 4-9, Friday 12-10, Saturday 12-10, Sunday 4-8. A Partner works 3 – 4 days a week and the chef and bar tender take care of operations when the Partner isn’t there.

Even without a full time partner on the premises, sales are expected to increase over last year. Catering keeps growing and is already increasing this year over the previous year. (Imagine the business that could be done with a full time Owner/Operator always at the business).

It is estimated a new Owner/Operator should have Cash Flow exceeding $100,000 per year from this location.

The location also lends itself to other concepts should a Buyer wish to change.
