Opportunity: Successful and thriving Vegan Restaurant for Sale
Restaurant: The Food Forest Cafe
Location: Peterborough, Ontario

The Food Forest is extremely happy to say that we are oh-so close to reaching our 4th year, serving as Peterborough, Ontario's only fully gluten-free and 100% plant-based restaurant! It has been an absolutely incredible journey so far. After long discussions about our future goals and dreams, we have decided it is time to pass the Food Forest on to someone out there who shares our passion for delicious, healthy food and environmental ethics. We are looking to sell the Food Forest to someone who can build on our success and continue and improve on our vision.

When we began this journey we didn’t have much of a plan... fill in Peterborough’s gap for healthy and delicious alternative food? No pressure! We could never have imagined the insurmountable and unwavering support and demand for what we are offering. Just weeks after opening our small cafe on George St. North (now Amuse’ Coffee Co.), we were already talking about needing to expand and build an off site kitchen. After construction of a new satellite kitchen, we were still struggling to meet the demand and decided we needed to make the leap into our current downtown location, with a kitchen 3 times larger than our humble beginnings. Since moving we have grown exponentially and further established our roots in the community and have been honored to receive: the Chamber of Commerce Business Excellence for Waste Management, winning the first Sustainable Peterborough award in the “Waste” category, upholding “Certificate of Excellence” on TripAdvisor. More recently we were featured on the front cover of the 2017 Vegetarian Directory published by the Toronto Vegetarian Association, who distributes over 50,000 copies in the GTA; we never expected that we’d be acknowledged in this way!

We couldn’t be more thankful for the support of Peterborough, our patrons, and also of our wonderful staff over the years. We took a huge risk seeing if we had what it takes to build a successful restaurant from the ground up, and it was a risk we are so happy to have taken. Now, after four years and lots of hard work, it is a well oiled machine that's ready to be passed on to someone with a similar vision so that the two of us are able to explore our other passions and travel to distant lands.

While we are very excited to sell, we are in no rush as we are enjoying every minute of this creative journey. Moving forward, we will continue to serve Peterborough with great customer service, delicious food, and will proceed to grow and improve until the day comes to pass it on.

Thank you for all your support and thank you for reading. We’ll see you at the Forest!
