Staff compliment
The owner/head chef is very hands on but has decided to concentrate on another venture,hence the sale of this wonderful business. The present owner would be available to stay on after business transfer for a limited period. (it is paramount that this business is carried on in good hands to the next level and beyond.
Full time staff ( 2) and part-time ( 2 ) .

This wonderful unit has already achieved a super reputation for its quality food that most businesses could only hope to aspire to, however there is an untapped opportunity to take this unit to the next level implementing an evening a la carte menu. The business has wonderful kitchen and storage facilities which would easily lend itself to strong outside catering projects. There are already some local businesses utilising the supply of wonderful food for events, funerals, gaa associations, schools etc. This is a particularly local part of the business which needs nurturing but will be very lucrative if given the right time and attitude. Social media marketing will always help and then let the food & service speak for themselves.

(the unit comes with potential 3 bedroom accommodation over the business – needs a little tlc but is included in the reasonable rent)
