A Convenience Store, Cafe & Bottle Shop Priced to Sell

Organic produce continues to rise in popularity, making this combined convenience store, bottle shop and cafe worth some serious consideration if you’re looking to score a successful and growing business.

The 2021 Australian organic market noted that “The size of the markets for health-conscious goods and services expanded substantially in 2020…Australians are increasingly buying organic with  56% of Australian shoppers purchasing organic in the last year and over 500,000 new shoppers buying into the organic market.”

Convenience Store

Priced for sale at $760k, this ‘all-in-one’ convenience store sale offers a prominent location on a major road with high traffic levels in a popular Melbourne suburb, with access from the freeway, and public transport and surrounded by other well-visited shopping locations. 

Finn Business Group’s Mark Hall is brokering the sale and highlights the value of the three unique streams of income that this business encompasses, “It’s a long-established business in the area, with sales in liquor, cafe food and drinks and quality organic groceries,” he shares with me, “They’ve recently renovated with an expanded cafe seating area for both indoor and outdoor dining – it’s the kind of place that customers shop and spend some time in.”

Tapping into the shopper’s market and mindset, this location offers customers a place to not only pick up important essentials and everyday grocery items, but a spot to meet friends, drop in and enjoy safe dining both indoor and outdoor as preferred in this COVID-adaptive environment.

A fully-equipped commercial kitchen supports the dine-in area which seats 30 people at a time, and brings a professional level of quality to everything from coffee to a sit-down lunch – more than ever, shoppers are looking to get back out into suburban areas which are fast becoming the ‘new CBD’ with many more people working from home than ever before. For a break in between Zoom meetings, being able to do a grocery run and enjoy a coffee and cake not far from home is the ultimate inconvenience.

A specialist continental deli and cafe make up part of the spacious premises with a double frontage and a large loading bay at the rear for streamlined produce delivery and unloading. This business has fantastic potential for a new buyer to further develop and grow their offering, with a secured lease available for this prime positioning and an already strong and stable client base who rely on this location for their everyday routine.

With some impressive margins to be benefited from, this location is also fully licensed to serve alcohol, making it a spot for a long Sunday lunch or mid-week business (and fun!) catch-up, and the ability to further grow the menu and cafe component.

Most certainly priced to sell, this is an opportunity that will attract a whole range of buyers with the opportunity for both retail and hospitality minds and skill sets to combine – as Melbourne continues to come alive post-pandemic, this makes for a compelling convenience store sale for the right new owner who has the vision for growth, community and expansion.
