  • Relocatable
  • Asking price
    Price on request


This is a popular Douglas landmark ice cream parlour and coffee shop which has been trading from the same spot for decades. Unusually for a prime location in Douglas the business operates on a very reasonable leasing arrangement. Therefore this may ideally suit a business owner who might wish to trade seasonally without the burden of being tied to high ongoing fixed costs out of season. Equally the spot trades well all year round with free parking and a good sized outside seating area directly in front of the shop. 

Within the asking price the buyer will receive:

·         The existing goodwill

·         Quality fixtures and fittings 

·         Plus the existing Facebook page with several thousand existing followers
