Hi. I have two exceptionally good food vending street use permits in San Francisco on Market Street by the Westfield Mall in the Union Square shopping area. Average daily passerby for each location is approximately 40,000 - 60,000 people.
I need to sell both of these permits along with all of the equipment for them all together in one sale. All of the equipment is already fully permitted by the health and fire department.
These are probably the two best permit locations in the city. I have had these permits for over four years and have not had the resources to develop them to their capacity so the prospective buyer would have to see their potential.
I do know for certain that the hot dog stand next to my first location averages anywhere from $1200 - $2000 / day net from being friendly with her various employees over the past 4 years.
The main reason I am selling them is that honestly it is too much work for me and I am trying to live a more settled life and start raising a family. My aging parents on the east coast need my help in their old age and in return are giving me a large house in exchange for my return or else I wouldn't be selling these.
The first location is at Powell/Market below the cable car turn-around and the second is at the busy, busy corner of 4th & Market in front of Old Navy.
The first location is a kettle corn, caramel corn / pizza / coffee, latte & espresso pop up stand with a separate stand alone hand wash sink, about $22K worth of equipment. Note: ONLY THE KETTLE CORN EQUIPMENT is shown at this location as the pizza and coffee equipment has only been recently added.
This location is great because you get all of the tourist business from the tourists waiting for the Powell / Market cable car, the most highly trafficked cable car pick-up spot in San Francisco and are also right next to the Powell / Market BART subway station which is the most highly trafficked station in the entire bay area. You are also right in front of the Westfield Mall, the biggest mall in San Francisco with all of the shoppers and massive seasonal business.
The second location at the corner of 4th & Market is the busiest corner in the entire city. With this comes a hardly used, high quality aluminum food cart, about $35K worth of equipment, with the following menu:
Steak and Chicken kebob served either seperatley or as a meal with rice and garden salad, kebob sandwiches, chicken teriyaki served with rice and garden salad, chicken teriyaki sandwiches, chicken or beef burgers, rice and garden salad as a seperate side order, canned drinks and chips
This second location gets even better foot traffic than the first location as it is close to the corner, right in front of Old Navy, with the Sony Metreon and Moscone Convention Center right around the corner.
This location gets a very, very high and consistent concentrated volume of foot traffic all day long every day of the week
The hours for the Powell / Market location are Mon-Fri: 9am-7pm, Sat & Sun: 11am-7pm
The hours for the 4th / Market location are Mon-Sun: 11am-7pm.
In terms of equipment, here's the breakdown for the first one:
This one is a pop up stand and the kettle popper and hand wash sink runs off of propane.
The pizza machine is a fast bake Turbo Chef counter top pizza oven that weighs 60 lbs and cooks up to a 16" pizza in 2 minutes or less with all the doughy bubbles and exceptional quality just like any pizza house.
The coffee / latte / & espresso machine is a very high quality Swiss made Jura Z9 automatic machine with an LCD touch screen and only weighs 35 lbs. It grinds the beans to order even for coffee and uses "fine foam milk technology" for the foamed milk for the lattes and cappuccinos so all the coffee drinks are coffee house quality or better.
The refrigerator is a very nice hardly used turbo air pizza prep fridge
All the electric equipment runs off of a new Honda EU7000 generator with only 300 hours of use on it.
The second location is a brand new food cart with a large griddle, refrigerator and three compartment sink that cost about $33K and runs off of a honda eu3000 generator.
Both are 9 x 9 feet spaces.
These are the "grand-fathered" permits like the old hot dog stands that have been around for over 40 years and are just renewed annually for about $1500 in fees per permit. As long as you abide by all of the health and fire codes and do not get yourself into trouble, these permits should last you for the rest of your life.
The city does not grant permits like these anymore, especially in this area.
The permitting system has changed and they are now only good for seven years and for only three days per week
This is a very up and coming area as they are about to open another brand new mall just half a block down from the Powell / Market location and are also drastically expanding the Moscone Convention Center, the largest convention center in San Francisco, around the corner from the 4th / Market location.
This convention center regularly gets massive tech conventions like Salesforce with over 100,000 attendees as well as many other regular conventions.
So you would basically paying about $55K for the equipment which is all practically brand new and almost $50K per permit. I feel the price I am asking is very reasonable considering how good the locations are and the ever rising costs of San Francisco real estate. Let me know if you are interested. PRICE FIRM. Thanks!
