The 3 most valued things that a business has:
Location.
Location.
Location.

This long established restaurant is located in the center of huge office buildings, apartments, and hotels. There are several parking lots very close by. While downtown Cleveland has always had office buildings, there were never as many new apartment buildings and one close by just going up. After work people flock to the restaurants in droves. Even on a Sunday you can see large numbers of people out and about, eating at sidewalk cafes, shopping at Heinen’s, attending plays at Playhouse Square. Thousands of people are living, working, and socializing in the area, looking for a good place to eat. If they are attending plays, they are looking for a place to eat nearby both before and after the shows.

At a 97.6-percent occupancy rate with apartment-complex waiting lists that extend for "years" in some cases — is a social and economic behemoth unlike anything the city has seen in a long time. It's a new Cleveland identity entirely. It's upscale.
"Downtown" is closing in on some 15,000 residents, up 70 percent since 2000. "275 apartments are currently under construction and another 4,000 are in various stages of planning."


Although the downtown residential population is over 14,000, downtown Cleveland is still only scratching the surface of meeting demand for downtown living. Playhouse Square is putting up a new apartment building near East 17th. At 378 feet tall, including mechanical floors, the 34 story apartment building will be comparable in height to the Hilton Cleveland Downtown and house over 300 units.

That's where our downtown restaurant comes in. It is centrally located in the middle of all of the activity! AND they are only serving lunch and dinner 6 days a week; they are closed on Sunday. With all of the influx of office workers, residents, and visitors, this would be an ideal time to offer breakfast and a Sunday BRUNCH! Everything is in place to do this; all you need is staffing and a good breakfast / Brunch menu! The rent which is currently $7475 / month, will not change when you stay open longer hours.


The business has 5,100 sq. ft. located in a large office building. It also has a street entrance. It has the possibility of having a breakfast crowd. Everything is in place. All you need is the staffing and a good breakfast menu. The rent will not change when you are open longer hours. The current rent is $7475 / month. The current Lease expires on March 31, 2020 and they have an additional 5 year option to renew. This business already has an established great name.

Located in an area of brisk business and plenty of clientele. New apartment buildings are being built in the immediate area, which will provide an influx of residents and customers. They already serve many office buildings and businesses in the area. Crain's News Magazine just posted new information about new apartment building being built within a block of this restaurant. Downtown residents typically eat out; that should increase the dinner crowd and possibly the breakfast crowd. At this time they do not serve breakfast.

Breakfast could and should be added to bring in additional income, especially since there will be an influx of residents nearby. They are currently a food business that has Liquor. The liquor business is not promoted the way it should be.

Support & Training:
The seller will provide transitional support for 1 month, not to exceed 20 hours per week.
Reason for Selling:
Retiring

They have a D-1, D-2, D-3 and D-6 Liquor License; that is, Beer, Wine and Hard Liquor for 7 days a week. Call and find out more about this tremendous opportunity; schedule a visit with the owners and myself to see for yourself. Peter Vadas, Broker
