This very successful, easy to run and profitable business is for sale at asking 99K in a great area filled with upper-middle class residents, gross sales of +/- 210K
All inventory (15K) as well as transitional training and support included in the sale.
Widely recognized as among the top Ice Cream shops in Malaga, it is not uncommon to see a line forming up in this great business even when the staff has a good thru-put system to take orders and get customers moving down the line.
Located in the intersection of 3 of Malaga’s biggest residential neighborhoods the business caters to about 80K clients within walking distance, it also benefits from a nearby Mall, Supermarket and football stadium as well as heavy car traffic exposure. The premises are 90m2 inside and has use of the outdoor terrace with 10 tables.
Rent is low at just 1500/month renewable every 5 years and profitability is very high, the owner is scaling back his workload and thus has priced very reasonably at an ROI of just over 2.0 without increasing the workload, this is excluding owner salaries so true return on investment.
The shop opens from 13:00 to 24:00 for 10 ½ months a year.
All the equipment (except the ice cream making machines) will remain/are included in the deal. The store consistently carries about 15K in inventory (included in deal) with sales over 210K. A fresh ice cream supply deal will be set in place for 5 years at market standard rates from the owner’s bulk production facilities, the advantage of this format besides the obvious reduced capital requirements will be the reduced work hours (no production) and reduced salary expenses.
We would recommend any prospective buyer considering this option to have a working knowledge of Spanish as the majority of clients are of Spanish nationality so a certain interaction with clients is expected, however the current owner leaves around 18:00 since he produces the ice cream and employees can handle the bulk of serving work.
The owner got into the business without any prior knowledge of restaurants or ice cream making and has since become in a recognized ice cream maker, he will offer the new buyer a prolonged and continued transitional period to ensure the continued success of the business so no prior experience needed.
