Brilliant, Cashflow, Ice Cream Bus Business

This is a Home-based business that was originally established 35 years ago, comprising of a fully fitted out Bus from which they sell: Soft Serve Ice Creams, Milkshakes, Fresh Fruit Smoothies & Ice Creams, Waffle Baskets, and various other delicious combinations of Ice Creams and fruit, plus Dairy Free options.

The current bus was a recent addition and the interior was purposely designed after years of experience, to provide the best functioning equipment and working space possible, and it works beautifully.

The Business is currently only operating at two weekend markets per week, on the Sunshine Coast: Eumundi Market on a Saturday and Fishermans Road Market at Maroochydore on a Sunday morning, as the current owners have other work commitments through the week. They have been happy with the very good income derived from just these two market days. However, it is very evident that the business has the potential to operate more frequently with the subsequent ability to significantly increase the income and profitability of this great little earner.

The Bus is mechanically in excellent condition and very easy to drive. As it no longer operates as a passenger vehicle and the conversion to an Ice Cream Bus has reduced the weight, it only requires a normal licence to drive it. It was recently reassessed regarding this conversion for that purpose, as it previously required an HR Licence to drive and annual Roadworthy examinations. It is, therefore, in excellent condition mechanically. It is also attractively sign-written to draw attention to it.

Internally, the bus was designed and fitted out for maximum functionality and allows two people to work together very comfortably. There is 240 Volt Electricity with multiple power points. On site, this can operate on 240 Volt power if available or there is a very sizable Diesel Generator that works a treat on the unpowered sites.

The Bus is also plumbed, with a double sink fitted and has ample bench space and storage cupboards. There is a Fridge, two Freezers, the Soft Serve Ice Cream machine, two Fruit Arama machines, two Blenders and a Milkshake machine all fitted for smooth operations and minimal movement whilst the bus is being driven to site.

The business also comes with a pop-up, sign-written Marquee, which adjoins the service windows of the bus and provides shelter for serving customers and an alfresco seating area for those who want to sit and eat. The tables and chairs are included along with a number of free-standing sign boards.

This is an extremely satisfying cash business for the owners to manage with loads of happy customers, very easy operations, low overheads and good returns for their two days of work.

It represents a great opportunity for a new owner to take it to the next level by incorporating more markets, festivals, school fairs or street vending with an Itinerant Licence if desired.

The current owners recognise they are really underutilising this business at this time but due to other work commitments they can do no more.

This business, therefore, offers a future owner enormous opportunities for growth.
