One of the best known and visible businesses in its area and an icon for ice cream products and cakes, this well known business was started in January 1984 by the current owner who had acquired huge amounts of knowhow and a solid base of intellectual property in the production of ice cream through years of association with leading ice cream product manufacturers here and in the U.S.A.
Ice cream mix is still obtained from the original associated business but can be obtained from other sources as well.
Intellectual property, which has built up since 1984, is the cornerstone on which the business is based. IP in both ingredients and methodology is vast and has made the business the pre-eminent ice cream cake manufacturer and retailer in the area and beyond. The ice cream cake has been the main marketing focus for 30 years, and is purchased by consumers for all occasions imaginable.
The vendors will provide full and extensive training and ensure the complete transfer of all knowledge and intellectual property to the new owner.
The business is run by one of the two owners, while the other is a totally silent partner.
Operating hours are:
• Monday to Friday 11.00 a.m. - 8.00 p.m.
• Saturday 10.00 a.m. - 9.00 p.m.
• Sunday 10.00 a.m. - 9.00 p.m.
The active partner works a regular week and the staff run the business effectively when he is not present.
The production of the ice cream cakes in store is a straightforward process which the ice cream machine handles in a very simple operation, which does not require major skills or training.
Expansion opportunities are excellent and have not been pursued by the current owners for lifestyle reasons. Expansion areas that have been discussed and all of which should yield major increases in sales, are:
• On line presents and sales
• Wholesale distribution
• Ice cream cabinets at party shops and other locations
• Additional stores
The business is located in “probably” the most visible location in the area at a major T-junction.
The extent of the premises is approximately 1,000 sq.mt. and consists of:
• Shop area with counters
• Manufacturing area
• Dry storage room
• Cool room (4 x 3 metres)
• Many stand alone freezers
The lease expires on 1 December 2017 and there is one, four year option for renewal. Current rental is $65,344 p.a. with a 3.5% annual escalation.
Plant/Equipment / Fittings:
All plant and equipment is included in the asking price and is all fully paid and in good working condition.
