The Café Red Cherry must be one of the best-known businesses in Horsham. Establishe­d in some form or location in the town for over 60 years, it’s definitely a landmark! Thanks to a great mix of customers – and its popular outside catering service – the café is showing a consistent increase in turnover.

restrictio­ns lifted • Heaps of support from our existing customers and due to other cafes closing we have picked up a large number of new customers • Great time to buy this business due to jobkeeper paying wages for staff and one of the owners/ partners

We can only see this business growing moving forward. This popular retro-themed café is situated roughly halfway between Melbourne and Adelaide on the picturesqu­e Wimmera River, just a 20-minute drive from the Grampians and world-renowned Mount Arapiles. There’s no shortage of customers and the financials show that turnover has increased significan­tly since introducin­g catering. With an active Facebook page, great reviews on Trip–advisor and impressive community support, this is an excellent investment in a stunning location.
