About this opportunity

The Old Railway Café is a local favourite, situated in the perfect location in between Townsville’s Original Train Station and the CQ University Townsville Campus. The café is currently run under management, and it would a fantastic opportunity for an owner operator to come in and takeover. Being across the river from the Queensland Country Bank Stadium allows this café to take advantage of any sporting events or concerts that may be held there. With the shop being in excellent condition, this café is primed and ready for a new owner. Could you be the one to take this alfresco dining experience to the next level?

Business Story

The Old Railway Café offers customers a variety of café classics such as burgers, toasties and sandwiches and a seafood offering with their salt & pepper calamari, crumbed whiting, and smoked salmon. In addition to this they also have a large variety of breakfast offerings and cater to vegetarian and gluten free options as well as a large grab n go cabinet for those on the move. The café serves a range of beverages with cold pressed juices, smoothies and delicious coffee making up the items on the beverage menu.

The business is run out of a 50m2 shop with a brand-new kitchen fit out with room for 2 chefs and a 50m2 outdoor seating area. This alfresco dining café caters to the high traffic in the area, from the various apartment buildings surrounding the café to the passers-by from CQ University. Given its close distance and the large, accessible parking for those looking to visit the Queensland Country Bank Stadium there is potential here to open the café for these large events.

The current owners implemented all correct systems and procedures for staff. If an owner operator came into the picture, it would reduce running costs and contribute to a significantly improve bottom line. With the café only trading 5 days a week there is room to increase revenue further through opening on weekends for breakfast/lunch.

With plenty of growth happening in this area, this café is about to explode with business. The ATO office is now nearby, a new construction project is popping up soon in the next block, and people are returning to the various hotels and apartments in the area. There is plenty of untapped potential in this café and all it needs now is a passionate individual to take the reins and embark on a profitable venture.
