Shirley’s Café is a popular and profitable northern Michigan restaurant on busy US-131 in the family friendly town of Mancelona. An average of 9000+ cars pass through this area daily and this has increased 33% in the past year. Shirley has worked hard to build this business, and wants to retire on a high note! Is it time for you to own your destiny? Tourists flock to this restaurant due to the prime northern Michigan location near hunting, snowmobile trails, lakes, rivers, and Shanty Creek Ski and Golf Resort. In addition, regular customers are loyal throughout the year. This 2700 square foot building is turnkey, well maintained, and comes fully equipped. People come from all over to eat Shirley’s outstanding, fresh food and experience the friendly service. Shirley keeps a bulletin board for customers to leave “reviews” of her restaurant, and has collected thousands of gems over the years. For additional compensation, Shirley will sell the inventory, as well as her name, and world famous recipes such as pancakes, soups, pies, fried chicken, and many kinds of bread baked fresh daily. This restaurant is currently open for breakfast and lunch seven days a week. Adding dinner is an option for the new owner as there are no similar dinner restaurants in the area. There is potential to add a much-needed liquor license if one becomes available. This is a unique opportunity to own a turnkey business in one of the most beautiful areas of northern Michigan. All equipment is included, and the quality staff are highly trained, motivated, and loyal. Shirley’s Café in nearby Bear Lake Township is also available for sale and owners would consider selling two restaurants as a package deal. Buyer should verify square footage.
