Xpresso Bar

Business Details

Are you looking for a premium business with strong growth and profits with little owner involvement?
Located in the heart of the Canberra Centre, Xpresso Bar benefits from the massive passing trade of its central location as the only café in the food court. Xpresso Bar has built an exceptionally large customer base of premium quality repeat customers from the surrounding Centre, Corporate and APS precincts. This has guaranteed the businesses strong financial performance since its opening in 2014.
This business is renowned for serving world class Ona coffee and premium quality cake, with a consistency that has generated frequent return customers.
Xpresso Bar is a super cash flow business, turning over upwards of $40,000 - $50,000 per month, and churning through almost 350kg of coffee per month.
The business has demonstrated accelerating growth over the past three years due to fast growth in new customers through positive word of mouth.
With an experienced and confident hospitality team, the business is well prepared for the large volumes of trade it does on a day- to-day basis. The business can run itself when the owner is not present, enabling them to take extended overseas trips while letting staff handle operations.
For this prime location, you'd be only expected to pay $8655.33 (GST inclusive) rent per month, which is an exceptionally fair rate in today's Canberra market.
Better yet, you get one of Canberra’s most unique and fresh fit outs. Renovated as recently as 2014, this fit out includes a fresh timber finish and a vertical garden.
In brief:
 * Turnover of around $580,313 and PEBITDA of $74,574 in FY 2017.Net profit of over $55,000.
 * Owner only works between 20-25 hours per week, plenty of time to pursue other interests.
 * Exceptional location as the only café in the lower Canberra Centre Food Court.
 * Outstanding reputation for specialised coffee and cake offerings.
 * Loyal and consistent customer following.
 * Extremely high passing foot traffic.
