We have for sale our unique and genuine national award winning 1950 American Diner.
She is the largest original American dining car in the Europe.
In October 2017 we won Englands ‘Best World Cuisine’ at the England food awards which is held annually and also won midlands best world cuisine in 2018 plus we are nomiated again this year 2019
We have worked to improve our business day by day and it has been a truly fun,fantastic and unique business to run for many years plus we will be very sad to see her sold but our age has its limits.
We continue to trade and the business is 100% ready to be taken over and make money from day one! With no need to start from scratch as we have a truly huge customer base and great staff team.
The diner has a 5 star hygeine food rating and has done for many years.
The business includes our very very busy facebook page with over 8000 followers who interact with us regularly.
Obvisously we feature very well on facebook reviews,google reviews and tripadvisor reviews and as you will see relatively we far out number every other business in our area showing you how busy we are in comparison.
Now a bit about our unique one-off business
The diner was built in Elizabeth ,New Jersy USA by the Jerry O’mahoney dining car company (The rolls Royce of dining car companies)
we have 9 booths that seat 4 to 6 people plus 14 steel counter stools for extra seating these are very popular as they become almost a chefs table and landing the customer right in the action. we have 64 seats for all year use plus the outside garden area which adds another 12 covers at present with scope for more.
she was first opened on st patricks day 1950 in Cambridge Massachusetts USA as Murphys diner at 2525 massachusetts avenue. She continued to trade as Murphys until 1969.
She then lay dorment for over 30 years and was shipped across the Atlantic in its entirety to the Uk.
We have owned the diner since 2004 and have traded at her present location for 14 years but now due to retirement we are offering our much beloved business for the very first time.
We have featured and continue to feature in movies,tv shows and magazines with 1 feature film and 1 other film screening in the near future (filming has now concluded on these 2 projects) this has been a very good source of income.
At present we are only open friday evening 5pm-9pm saturday 12 noon-9pm and sunday 12 noon-7pm this is due to our semi retirement but be assured there is a huge demand for the diner to be open longer.
We are not licenced to sell alchohol at present as we have never really wanted to do so but this also would increase the revenue for the business.
You are buying outright the building (so you own this unique and historic building completely) including all the original fixtures and fittings and all the ephemera within the building all of which has been collected over many many years ,all of which has produced a fantastic and genuine interior with the WOW WOW WOW factor.
We also have an outside seating area which has proved very popular.
The ground the diner is located on is leasehold and comes with a new 10 year lease and the ground rent is a very small £450 per calander month.
the ground rent is offset by the fact we benefit from 100% business rate relief so we pay no business rates whatsoever at the moment.
The Large secure carpark attached to the diner is fully tarmaced and fenced from neighbouring bussnesses.
The kichen is well laid out and very practical for the menu we serve and has also developed over the last 60 years to be very user friendly. we have had a full length custom built extractor system in 2017 to ensure all fumes from the cooking area do not enter the dining area.
We have a rear building attached to the diner which contains the wash up area,storage rooms,male toilet,female toilets, pudding/milkshake room.
Please also note we are not a roadside cafe that you see in the UK or a rehash of an american diner! We are a genuine and original huge 45 ton steel iconic diner from the USA.
Price plus stock at value.
