February 24, 2018


Business Overview
Café on Stokes is a popular café and takeaway snack bar beautifully positioned in the Townsville CBD at 1/18 Stokes Street, Townsville City. The business has been established since 2011. Stokes Street is located in the heart of the Townsville CBD and this prime position enables the business to service the workers from the surrounding businesses and large department buildings.

There are facilities for 20+ diners and there is also the option of adding further tables and chairs in the walkway to the right of the business. Cafe on Stokes is fully air conditioned which encourages many diners in the hotter months of the year to dine in. The kitchen is very large and could easily handle a busy catering division of the business. The fitout and equipment are in an excellent, well cared for condition.

Rosie’s Chicken
Café on Stokes is a licensee for Rosie’s Chicken. Rosie’s Chicken commenced in 1998 in Western Australia. This unique concept was developed to help small businesses compete against international franchises like KFC and McDonalds. Rosie’s Chicken is an additional high profit centre for existing fast food businesses and an alternative to a franchise.

Rosie’s is a professional co-branding service that makes your business look a million dollars. High quality Rosie’s Chicken signage has been installed both inside and outside Café on Stokes. The vendor advises that he buys the chicken spices and packaging from Rosie’s Chicken and there are no ongoing fees.

The Menu
The cafe sells a wide range of delicious homemade food including:

  • Hot breakfasts
  • Sandwiches, rolls and wraps
  • Chicken
  • Burgers
  • Salads
  • Sausage rolls and pies
  • Hot chips and potato wedges
  • Brownies, caramel tarts, biscuits and cakes
  • Coffee
  • Milkshakes and smoothies

Business Hours & Employees
Café on Stokes currently trades Monday to Friday from 7am to 3pm. The business is operated by one full time worker and 1 casual. The business is ideally suited to a family or husband and wife team who could share these hours between them with some casual assistance.

The vendor advises that the new owner has the flexibility to increase these hours and also to open the business on weekends. Opening on a Sunday would enable the business to take advantage of the crowds at the Cotters Markets on Sunday.
