Hansel and Gretel, a stunning Iconic Canberra Café, coffee roasting café, nut store, gift store.
Canberra, 2600, ACT
Hansel and Gretel were established an incredible 45 years ago, this wonderful, iconic Canberra business has stood the test of time. With an enormously diverse income stream, if one section drops, another picks up.
The wholesale side of the business has fallen off as the current owners haven’t actively pursued that income stream as it wasn’t playing to their strengths, there is huge opportunity to reinvigorate this aspect of the business. Being actively involved in social media and marketing would generate a much greater following. Massive unit developments within the suburb and the rebuild of the bus depot will drive success deep into the future.
Reason for Sale
The current owner is ready for retirement and is passionate the business is perfectly suited to anyone with drive and ambition, especially a younger generation that can drive social media marketing to a far greater, active level.
