WHY DO WE SHOW EXPIRED LISTINGS?

This popular Cafe / Community Center is centrally located and the area was an important supply center on the main road to the Mother Lode during the California Gold Rush.  

I am searching for a General Manager team that combine their talents as a chef and efficiently operate the entire operation.  One can manage the kitchen while the other manages the front cafe and staff.  Both can manage the administration which includes ordering, scheduling, bookkeeping, and event management.  The team would have overall operating duties while collaborating with the owner on plans to increase business through e-commerce strategies, event creation and management, marketing strategies, etc.

This business was established nearly 10 years ago and is a popular place with the locals.

This is a great long-term opportunity in a charming small community.  There is a nice golf course, historic castle, deep railroad history, and lots of nearby treasures.  It is within a 2-hour drive to Lake Tahoe, San Francisco, Sacramento, Napa, and Yosemite among other great destinations.

Here's the good, bad, and the ugly:

The Good: The reputation in the community is solid with the locals and has tremendous potential to grow with the right leadership.  There is a great foundation.

The Bad: The business has never made money.  Primarily it's because I have had inexperienced General Managers that lacked overall P&L management experience.  It's a small community, but we've done over $500K in business a couple of years ago.  We scaled back a little, but there is opportunity to do in excess of $1 million with the right leadership.

The Ugly: It is tough to find long-term A players for staff.  However, if you can train exceptionally well, then it could be successful.  

I started this business to help give back to the community nearly 10 years ago.  I do not have restaurant experience and have been hiring General Managers over the years who did not have the experience to operate the business professionally or profitably.  

I think the right team can make this successful.  Do the research and let me know if you think you are the right team.
