Tea Room For Sale Business Opportunity

Updated: Jan 22

I speak to so many people who are passionate about tea. Some long to open their own tea room one day. Well this might be just what you are looking for.

The time has come for me to hand up my hat!. At Columbus at least. As you know I'm spending more time in the UK with my tours and retreats and I am developing a training business as I enter my next season.


The Carmel tea room will stay under the Tina's Traditional brand and the capable management of Heather, my manager there, but Columbus will be sold on, to someone who can be the owner/operator there.


If that sounds like it could be you then read on...

You'll takeover the day to day operation, operational and training manuals come along with the sale. You also get the recipes and suppliers list, so you can start taking revenue from day one.


This is an ideal option if you dream of owning a cafe, bakery or tea room but have no experience and don't know where to start. All suppliers and product lists are included. You get to benefit from 2 years of initial business set-up and take over an existing revenue generating business.

Fully furnished, recently remodeled with 2 well equipped kitchens, one set-up as a bakery kitchen one set-up as a prep kitchen. Turn-key ready, the current business model boasts a high average visit/transaction while seating up to 28 in the main dining room, with a further 8 in a private room. Further seating available outside in good weather.

During lunch, the current business attracts loyal customers due to its from scratch homemade soups along with salads, sandwiches and baked goods and a range of loose-leaf teas.

A two way beer and wine license is included, which is ideal for celebration events.

Whether you are millennial seeking that “authentic” experience or someone who values tradition, this Indiana cafe, tearoom, bakery offers both! It serves authentic food and a great traditional experience. Currently with a menu of authentic food and beverages. It is well known for its wide selection of hot and iced teas and baby show, bridal shower and ladies group events.

Ideally located in the historical Indiana town of Columbus Indiana, the red brick building invokes a sense of nostalgia & relaxation. It has a strong following of locals and visitors. Many repeat customers just have to have a meal whenever they are visiting in the area as it brings back happy memories of celebrations with loved ones.

Visitors travelling through enjoy a change from the typical fast food chains. Easily seating 28 with an additional private room for small gatherings. Its lunch and baked goods menu is available for dine-in and carry out and is a regular lunch option for the hospital, medical & engineering workplaces nearby. It is close to major attractions and is easily accessible from a major highway.

The town has a high employment rate which means its economy is thriving. It is surrounded by places to enjoy outdoor activities such as lakes, trails, and parks. There are museums, local events and festivals, historical property tours and arts that all encourage a visit.

Small independents are outpacing big restaurant chains. They are perceived as offering more authentic experiences, having better food, service, and decor that is selected by the owners. These independent restaurants are well-received by older and younger generations. This segment of the restaurant industry is expected to see annual revenue grow of 5% through 2020.

A social media & marketing savvy new owner/operator could easily increase traffic by reaching out to millennials looking for an Instagram-able experience. Ideal for an owner/operator, couple/family who loves to prepare great food or to bake from scratch.

Further opportunities for growth include:- Increased community involvement could increase exposure and traffic count. Extending hours beyond the existing 5 days per week and/or opening in to the early morning for breakfast and/or evening for diner would allow the business to grow further.

Don’t miss out on your chance to keep tradition alive in this thriving community!🎂🎂
