This successful and modern restaurant, located in the foothills of eastern Fresno County, was built in 2006. It sited on a 1.40 acre lot that is commercially zoned C-6. The building is 4,346 square feet and includes a 96 seat dining room and 30 seat full service sports bar. The restaurant provides a quality dining experience to a local population of over 4,000 and to the more than 1 million annual visitors to Kings Canyon and Sequoia National Park. This is a turnkey sale that includes real estate, building, ABC Type 47 General On Sale Liquor License, and all equipment, furnishings, and fixtures.
The property is located in Dunlap, California only 3 miles off of Highway 180, the main entrance into Kings Canyon and Sequoia National Parks. The present site has been continuously operated as a restaurant since the late 1800's. Originally called the Dunlap Inn, this historic restaurant was completely rebuilt in 2006 after a fire destroyed the existing facility. The new facility has a modern but rustic charm that complements the area's rural character. The current facility offers an American dining experience with an accent on authentic western BBQ traditions.
The building is equipped with a fully site supported fire suppression system, backup generator system for power outages, and modern alarm system. The kitchen is fully appointed with stainless steel food prep stations, large walk-in food storage, a commercial halon kitchen fire suppression system, and all of associated equipment and fixtures of a modern food service operation.
The dining section includes a main dining room with a separate room for larger private parties. The separate bar facility is accessible from the dining room and from a separate exterior entrance. It is currently set up as a sports bar with multiple TV's and pool tables providing full liquor, wine, and beer service to the bar and to the restaurant.
The site is fully developed with a private well, 10,000 gallon water storage system, septic system, and fully paved and lighted parking lot with 47 spaces. This is a very scenic site in a quiet rural valley surrounded by mountain views. A seasonal creek flows through the property alongside the restaurant. There is a nice area on the opposite side of the creek that could provide additional outdoor dining facilities.
This is an amazing opportunity to acquire a long established and successful turnkey restaurant operation with a rich and storied history. It's ready to go and fully equipped for a new owner to lead it into its next chapter of life. The present owner will consider carrying paper for a qualified buyer. Showings will be strictly by appointment only and only to buyers who have demonstrated the financial capacity to complete a purchase.
