Our vendor clients operate this excellent business on a part time basis with the assistance of 1 full time chef and 5 part time members of staff. Trade is currently derived from circa 60% wet and 40% food sales, thereby providing tremendous scope for a new 'live-in' hands-on owner operator partnership with previous experience of running a food orientated operation to elevate this business to the next level by expanding the current food offering and by also focussing on a strategic marketing campaign to promote the diversity of the premises to cater for weddings, private parties and wakes etc, for which there is huge demand within the locale.
