Cash Flow:

For more than 40 years, this premiere custom kitchen and bakery has developed its reputation for the finest custom food and food service (catering) in Tennessee. Everything is made in-house, always fresh, using only the finest ingredients. Everything is prepared custom, from scratch— no food is ever brought in from commissaries or pre-made. The services offered are:
• Ready-to-eat meals, salads, sides, desserts
• full service catering
• food catering
• cocktail catering
• box lunch catering

Continuing in their premium location of the last 10 years, in one of the most exclusive neighborhoods in the state, the store is leased through June 2025 (lease actually available for longer). The business has built a very loyal following of “regulars” who patronize daily, and family and business customers who wouldn’t dream of having a wedding, party or event without them.

The team varies between 8-9 employees:
• Principal / administrative CEO (retiring)
• the “relationship manager” and GM
• head chef • 2 bakers
• assistant chef • dishwasher
• part time baker • part-time helper

Excellence and incredible variety have long been the benchmarks. For example, available DAILY are dozens of gourmet entrees, many side dishes, soups, salads, breakfast-brunch options, a variety of appetizers and fantastic desserts.
All dishes are from proprietary recipes developed over almost 5 decades! This is not even a comprehensive list; seasonal specials also available in store.

The asking price of $2,000,000 includes $350k of FF&E (including 3 walk-in coolers and a 2015 GMC van), and all inventory ($15 - 20K)
