Business Description

Established Restaurant and Home on the Shores of Lake Champlain in VT

The Bridge Restaurant has been serving delicious food to locals and travelers to the Lake Champlain region since 1978. It is conveniently located on the corner of VT Route 17 and VT Route 125 less than a half mile from the Lake Champlain Bridge to New York State.

The business operates year-round and offers home-cooked meals for breakfast, lunch and dinner six days a week. The restaurant also carries a wide selection of beer and wine offerings. There is a seasonal take out window that operates from late Spring through Fall with exterior seating.

This long standing, extremely successful business generates an average of nearly $500,000 gross sales annually. There are opportunities to expand by adding to the current offerings and/or developing ancillary business lines to generate additional revenue. The current owner would like to relocate and is looking for a new owner to infuse energy into the business to bring it to the next level.

This opportunity INCLUDES: the restaurant building, land, AND the single family home on the same lot. The home can be used by a new owner or rented for additional income.
