Why is this business successful?
The convenience of location, affordable prices and available parking with fewer people makes for a stress-free shop in any attire. Sales are boosted over the holiday seasons with visitors coming in droves. It is simply easier to get what you need from the Milk Bar than it is going to any supermarket.
The days of sending your kids up the road to get the milk and paper, or more bacon and eggs are back – with the leftover change for a lolly from the ‘old school’ lolly cabinet. Milk bars are once again a convenience.
Customer loyalty has been much appreciated by the current owners and to reward regulars, requests for additional or speciality items are happily ordered. Elderly customers are catered for, including holding certain items at the counter, so they do not need to walk the entire store. The owners will even take items out to the car for customers with limited mobility. This willingness to offer service has led to now offering phone ordering for pick up and pay. Another excellent convenience for locals to get what they need – hassle-free.
Simple takeaway hot food is also on offer and catering to other local businesses, including plated sweets and sandwiches when orders are not large enough for a ‘catering company,’ but are too big for a customer to undertake themselves. This again increases sales and profits while building customer loyalty.
Loyal customers from excellent customer service and convenience are crucial to making a substantial profit. Knowing what products to stock and making sure the hot food is fresh and ready to be served at the right times of the day ensures success.
Summer and school holidays see a peak in sales. After school hours between 3:00 pm – 4:30 pm and lunch trade between 11:00 am – 1:00 pm are the busiest times.
If you are looking for that convenient milk bar with loyal customers in a great location with “booming” residential growth; this business promises to be cruisy and rewarding, enquire now.
