ON LINE BUSINESS AUCTION two weeks only - CLOSES Sept 1st 3pm.

We will have a preview Tues 8/26/16 & 8/30/16 form 3:00 PM to 5:30 PM, so come check it out!


What started as something to get this amazing 82 year old entrepreneur “outa the house” as a part time adventure now has to be sold to someone with more time, energy and drive.  She currently has an aprox $12,000 debt that she understands is a personal loan.  So we are trying to get that amount reduced. It easily could be a walk in (w/license) and run with investment opportunity. 

Health forces sale and the inability to work this business to its fullest potential... It is currently being operated on a part time basis in the busy plaza located at the intersection of Hwy 200 and US Hwy 41N in Hernando.  View of the lake in front and the Rails to Trails runs along the back.  Hernando Plaza has a nice variety of business from restaurant, laundry mat, bike shop and more.  

The adventure was taken on and work was completed to update and make the shop code compliant and licenses are current. In addition to painting the unit, they installed a $1,000 grease trap, 3 bay stainless steel commercial sink, SS hand wash sink, and scoop rinse dispenser.  Outside they installed the mop sink and there is a newer hot water tank. They made a considerable financial investment as well as time and energy.

Inside there are 6 tables that seat 4, a showcase counter, new cash register, single head Hamilton Beach shake maker, a three head Omega commercial shake mixer, side by side fridge with water & ice dispenser, small chest freezer, shelving & cabinets built for the shop.  Two separate open signs, one with hours and accent lighting rimming the exterior windows.  There is a glass front soda cooler & commercial coffee pot. Also, two flat screen wall mounted TVs for kid time. There’s potential galore, just think of the ice cream socials, or even setting up ice cream bars at weddings. The opportunity for someone with energy, imagination and enthusiasm is amazing. Just think of the ideas!

There is a current working relationship with Working Cow Ice Cream and Ice Cream Club which supplies the ice cream freezer.  This is a turnkey operation that is available right now for a very short window.  The minimum opening bid cover small note and cost only. This can potentially be a walk in and take over immediately situation.  The rent is only $700 per month plus tax and the landlord is willing to let the new owners continue at that rate. 

We're closing this with a soft closing on Sept 1st at 3pm. (The sale will extend an additional ten minutes from the time the last bid is placed.) Don’t miss this opportunity to be your own boss for a very small investment.  Final sale is subject to seller's confirmation.
