The Coffee Club Noosa Civic

Stefan Sedlemeir – Buyer , 20 Jan 2019

After successfully running a Sydney-based subsidiary for a fast-paced overseas headquarters for ten years, we came to the Sunshine Coast for a change in lifestyle and location. After settling in we found our dream opportunity listed for sale and therefore we started our next project, taking over our own café-restaurant from a well-known franchise brand in Australia.

The team really guided us through the quite complex and time-consuming process of becoming a franchisee business owner and all the related tasks, risks and opportunities. Paperwork, recommendations for lawyers, accountants and finance brokers were all on hand as well as any kind of personal advice and “getting to understand the big picture”. The teams expertise, years of experience and continuity in doing business was a major contributor to our decision-making process and execution, leading to our takeover and now we are running a very successful business. It is a big step and compared to smaller investments you need to do your research and due diligence very carefully and in a timely manner, as buying a business is quite a sophisticated challenge which has to be performed with accuracy. The team worked with us throughout the process, they did not rush us and their guidance was always legitimate. It is good to be working with professional partners.
