Superb business opportunity astride the A977. First time on the market for 50 years – only 2 owners in that period. Highly popular roadside trading location. Well known and well loved by locals, regulars and travelling custom. Large and spacious café premises to accommodate c. 65 covers. Huge scope for site development (stpp). Large car park all within 3 acre site. Growing turnover – ideal for “hands on” owner operator.
Originally built 50 years, Powmill Milk Bar holds the distinction of being one of only two milk bars left in Scotland.
The site occupies a large roadside trading position of approximately 3 acres. The site has two entrances and exits via the A977 north and south. There is a sizeable car park in front of the business which is a considerable asset. In addition, there is land which banks gently to a raised slope area towards the northern end of the land.
The business has been run by our clients for the last 3 years. At present, the milk bar is run under management with the assistance of our clients’ family. It currently trades 7 days a week opening from 9:00am to 5:00pm. The business trades with a straightforward popular and very appealing day menu which includes all options from breakfasts and lunches including favourites such as soup, toasties, filled rolls, jacket potatoes etc. The business also trades exceptionally well from teas, coffees and tray bakes and home baking which is done on site in the premises.
Our clients run the business to entirely suit their needs. There is potentially huge scope for improvement including the extension of the opening hours, especially in the busy summer months as well as adopting a different style of menu in the potential evening or weekend opening.
The business has been a popular stopping off point for many generations of Scots and people travelling through the area and it is strongly felt that hands-on ownership from owners with real entrepreneurial flair will be able to enhance and develop this business further. The business would suit a wide variety of interested parties including chef owners, operators, husband and wife teams and investors.
Subject to Local Authority planning consent, we believe there is a considerable retail development opportunity locked within the site. This could include the repositioning and relocating of the milk bar on site or the erection of additional retail units which could attract rental income or diversify a new business on site.
It currently trades 7 days a week opening from 9:00am to 5:00pm.
The business enjoys a very prominent and centrally located trading position on the A977, one of the most prominent cross-country tourist routes leading from Glasgow, through Clackmannanshire, Perthshire and into the East Neuk of Fife and beyond. The M90 motorway lies approximately 5 miles to the east.
