Hello

I am looking to purchase a medium size cafe business in Dublin and looking for some advice. I have been given the figures by the operator and was just wondering if anybody can tell me if these are accurate % costs. I have been also given a selling price, so is this good value for the sales. I just want to know if i can make a living of this business.

The figures are all approx -

Good footfall in front of business
Sales 550,000 per year approx.
Food and take out costs - 33% ( 176,550 euro)
Wages - 25% ( 133,750 euro )
Overheads - 20% ( this includes rent, insurance etc - 107,000)

Any input or questions would be great.

Regards

Hey

There are two managers there at the moment getting paid about 18,000 a year. I will probaly keep one on and maybe pay myself the other managers wage for the first year.

What you think.

Thanks

Hey

The county council always comes first in payment !!!

There is a lease which involves the collection of waste which is not too bad.

How do you apply for outside seating are. Does there have to be a certain width on the pavement to get this permit and do you need special insurance to cover youself in case of a accident.

Thanks

Outside tables.

Just passing by Butlers Cafe in Chatham Street and I notice that they had a planning permission request for outside tables, placed in their window. Maybe have a look at this for information. Ever think of taking on a partner to share costs?
