In the south-east suburb of Bentleigh a thriving dessert business named ‘Carnival Crepes Shakes and Caffeine’ is for sale. With excellent takings, a long-secure lease and a business that can be turned into a franchise, this is a must-see!

Located on a busy road in Bentleigh within a strip of shops you will find Carnival Crepes Shakes and Caffeine. Perfectly situated at the local train station and surrounded by many local shops, this hole-in-the-wall style business is constantly thriving with people.

This business was established in 2021 with the sole focus on serving indulgent and distinctive crepes. The business owners have successfully developed a unique, grab-and-go style crepes, shakes, and coffees. They have transformed boring market crepes, to crepes that are cool, indulgent and “franchisee-looking”.

This dessert-style business means that there are very little overheads required. Only a small number of daily staff and equipment are required to run the day-to-day operations of this business.

Over the last two years of operation, a solid customer base has been established. Many of the customers originate from the local and outer neighbouring suburbs and regional towns. There is the potential to expand in the southeastern suburbs such as Cranbourne, Berwick and Springvale. There is also the opportunity to open an additional store in the western suburbs as it has been noted that many customers have travelled from the western suburbs to sample this goodness.

As this is a dessert business, there is the potential to make additional revenue at the local markets. Included in this sale is the branded marquee and connections of people who can assist with this.

The potential for this business are boundless! The lucky buyer can continue and invest in the business and make a few changes to see increased profits. This can be achieved by providing a comfortable outdoor space for customers, increasing social media and website marketing, and extending the trading hours. This business is franchise-ready if this is what the buyer would like. The ‘wow’ branding is done!!

It is no coincidence that dessert bars are becoming particularly popular in Melbourne. With very little overheads and boundless opportunities to make increasing profits, a business such as this won’t be around for long. Contact NICK on 0419 589 852. You won’t be disappointed!
