FoodWorks Mount Isa & Sunset Restaurant

August 24, 2019


Business Overview
This is a fantastic opportunity to purchase TWO  businesses for the price of ONE – a popular supermarket and a licensed Indian restaurant!

FoodWorks Sunset
FoodWorks Sunset is located at 43 Sunset Drive, Mount Isa and was purchased by the seller in 2015. The business is ideally located in a high profile corner position with ample car parking.

FoodWorks prides itself on its fresh, contemporary approach to retail whilst still retaining a friendly, community-focused relationship with its customers. The past few years has seen the brand go from strength to strength, becoming Australia’s largest truly independent supermarket group. There is also the option for the new owner to discontinue trading under the FoodWorks banner and become an independent operator.

The seller works full time in the business and is assisted by 6 employees. The current trading hours are:

  • Monday – Friday: 6am – 9pm
  • Saturday & Sunday: 7.30am – 9pm

Sunset Restaurant
In 2018 the seller established Sunset Restaurant, which features a traditional Indian cuisine menu, as well as westernised meals such as steak and burgers. The dine in restaurant is fully licensed, with facilities for 60 diners. It is also available for private events such as weddings, business lunches, celebrations, etc.
