Entrepreneurs invest many years building successful businesses. Selling your business, or buying an existing one, is a life-changing event. It is the mission of Truforte to help goal-oriented individuals realize their dreams. Our professionals have successfully handled hundreds of business sales throughout the USA for buyers and sellers. This provides valuable experience that better qualifies Truforte to help with the purchase or sale of your business entity. Business brokers are intermediaries who facilitate the sale of privately held businesses by working with both buyers and sellers. Confidentiality is critical to the successful transfer of a business. If it becomes known that a business is for sale, several things start happening and none of them are beneficial for either the seller or buyer of the business. Professional intermediaries are keenly aware of this and are experts at maintaining confidentiality. Truforte's professionals have decades of experience, handling the sale of hundreds of businesses in a wide range of size and industries.
Across the street from the Common and the post office, this classic Vermont business has what you could want in a village store. It's a hub of the community and a great place to meet friends, buy or sell products or dine in the rear cafe. The business has three facets, the store and deli, the cafe and the expanded catering service. The schools and local businesses all support the store. It's also not unusual for tourists or seasonal folks to come from as far as 40 minutes away to experience this unique market, deli and cafe. You're not likely to find a prettier or architecturally finer store in the state. Its antebellum, c. 1840 Greek Revival facade with benches, chairs, notice boards, flag and covered porch are so inviting. The south side of the building is vinyl sided for ease of maintenance. There is a 2-story garage to the side of the building. The room above is currently used for storage. If the activity out on the front porch doesn't get your attention, walk in. From the minute you step into the store you can tell it's alive. The counter has people checking out, the couch area has someone sipping coffee and talking to a neighbor, locals are conversing - it's exciting. The store is super stocked from hanging, local knit, colorful winter hats to the great coffee selection at the coffee bar, freshly cut meats, varied fruits and vegetables, the fabulous wine selection or the micro brews. It has what people are looking for, especially because much of it is produced locally. This serves two functions: it makes people want to come in to buy local produce and products as they usually know the quality and they know it serves the community keeping the cash flow local. The coolers with fresh meats and fish are stocked in the morning and are usually empty by evening. Everyone sees the merchandise moving so they're assured of freshness. The large walk-in cooler also ensures efficiency of electrical use and beverage display. Black and white tiles keep everything looking clean and neat. In back is the Thistle Cafe, opened in May, 2012. With seating for 25 patrons, it serves as another spot for people to enjoy their purchases or for sit down meals served or for special occasions, functions, holidays at various other times. The deli, catering and cafe businesses dovetail perfectly to complement each other. If all of this weren't enough, you have one of the nicest upstairs apartments with 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, laundry, sensational maple kitchen with eat-in area and breakfast bar, formal dining room, spacious living room, huge office with built in counter and a back porch with a simply lovely panorama to the east. It's about 2,500 square feet, large enough for a really good sized family. It has its own separate access. The large back yard has Adirondack chairs and picnic tables for customers, family and friends. Again, the views are amazing and the whole feeling is serene and relaxing. After all, this is the heart of the Connecticut River valley with its rich heritage, gentle climate and vibrant village life. If ever a village market and deli personified the best of Vermont living, this magnificent store and deli, building with great bones and owner's quarters and business with cafe dining and catering in an exciting town are certainly a candidate for consideration. It combines a vibrant business model with a turnkey operation for continued success. It includes everything to continue and expand the operation. Please read more information below. And take a look, you won't be disappointed.
