Business Description

Central FL downtown juice bar/cafe

Located in the heart of a growing downtown area, Bambu Cafe was the first juice bar in Polk County, and still the only one in the city. This female entrepreneur created everything from the menu to perfecting the floor plan for maximum flow. Doing 99% of the buildout herself (with the help of family)she was able to expand and relocate to a much needed larger place with minimal dollars paid advertising and only weekday hours. Now located across from parks, tennis courts, and many city events, foot traffic increases daily along with a loyal following since it’s inception in 2013. Surrounded by medical facilities and professional buildings, and a large lack of health-conscious options, Bambu thrived and outgrew the niche market of juicers to get more main stream by accommodating the clientele’s input and catering to their special requests.
Created by the owner/operator and perfected by customer suggestions, menu offerings including a variety of vegan, gluten-free, Paleo, and keto friendly options. Fresh raw juice; dairy free, no sugar added smoothies; made from scratch low-sodium soups; locally sourced kombucha; homestyle sandwiches; in-house grilled chicken breast; and several chopped salad bowls. In-house made dressings, croutons, wellness shots and infused water complement the clean ingredient sweet treats that round out the menu options.
The fun laid-back atmosphere and sociable staff have made this 6 year young cafe pretty popular among locals of all ages and has become the favorite for a quick bite to eat, grab and go take out, or to dine in and relax. The second seating room can also be utilized for private events, business meetings, social gatherings, or whatever else you desire. We pride ourselves in being a minimal imprint facility by using biodegradable products, locally sourced produce when available and even the vegetable waste is given back to our farmers to feed the livestock used for some of our items.
The super clean, truly turn-key location boasts over 2500 ft.² including an 8 foot Hood System, two gas ranges, three compartment wash sink, prep counters, icemaker, 3 bin soup warmer, hand wash sinks, multiple reach in coolers, shelving and stocked prep stations.
This scalable restaurant has the ability to boost revenue immediately by extending hours, increasing menu options, or even throwing a permitted liquor license for mixing “healthy” cocktails. Training manual, product order list, and a POS loyalty card program with a database of over 200 signed up customers convey with the sale of this profitable business. Also should mention families and businesses are moving here monthly.. we are a growing city!
Financials shown are for 2018, sales and cash flow have significantly increased by about 40% in the first 2 quarters of 2019
