Property Description

Listing is for real estate only. The business will be sold in a separate transaction. Highly successful coffee shop with many upgrades and improvements. Building fully renovated. 2 apartments on top floor. Business financials available in due diligence when under contract. Building purchased in 2014 and have done complete renovations of the downstairs storefront and upstairs front apartment. We invested over $125,000 combined for these remodels. The downstairs storefront was taken completely down to the studs with complete renovation of electrical and plumbing as well as aesthetics where attention was put in to present a classic urban feel that we felt was perfect for our coffee shop. We wanted our customer base to feel that they were somewhere hip but felt entirely comfortable and at ease in. The upstairs apartment had the front living area completely brought down to studs to update electrical and then drywalled with new carpeting and wood flooring throughout the entire unit as well many new appliances and fresh paint. In 2014 we also invested $30,000 into a new state of the art roof with a 25 year life span. In 2019 we had a new boiler installed which services the two upstairs apartments. The two apartments, back building and front business space all run on separate heating and air-conditions systems. The back and front space had these systems replaced shortly before we purchased the building. We also added a split air conditioning unit in the commercial kitchen in 2019. The kitchen is the gem of the entire building and was renovated approximately two years before we purchased the building. It is a state of the art commercial kitchen fully equipped. The building was tuck pointed by the previous owner who also replaced all the windows shortly before our ownership. Coffee Shop We had a 5 year plan when we bought the building. Our intent was to establish a coffee shop that would be the corner stone of downtown Elburn, that would bring life to the town in the daytime hours. Being on route 47, a major thoroughfare, we knew that the business was there. We had always intended to sell at the 5 year mark, leaving a successful, turn key business for the next owner with opportunities to still grow. When we were thinking about the concept of our coffee shop we felt that it was very important that we did not undervalue our customer base. We felt that many coffee shops outside major cities tended to go for a more country homey feel. This was something we wanted to avoid because we felt with the train station extending to Elburn there was a whole new wave of people who were moving here. Our goal was to look to the future with a nod to the past. We started with the look of the shop and our branding which we felt set the tone for the experience. Next we selected an amazing roaster from the city. Sparrow is owned and operated by Chris Chacko who has the only environmentally friendly roaster in the city and he utilizes almost all organic coffee beans. Since beginning with him we have never considered changing our product, he is hands down the best and we won't compromise. Despite the need to showcase an upscale and urban coffee shop, we knew that we didn't want the pretentious attitude that sometimes goes with the coffee experience. We pride ourselves on hiring only the most genuine and friendly people as our ambassadors to the front of the house. They are warm and inviting and freely and kindly help our customers navigate through the menu. If you are a regular customer, we know your name, drink and sandwich choice by heart! Look at our reviews on Google and Yelp and you will see that almost every single review mentions our wonderful staff. We are unique because every detail has been thought through. When it comes to our products we pride ourselves on using only top of the line products not limited to but including the following: Sparrow Coffee Roasters, Ghirardelli Chocolates, Monin Syrups & Boars Head Meats and Cheese
