As we would like to retire we would like to sell our Japanese restaurant with a separate wine bar in a strategic location in Helsinki. The restaurant is located in Hietalahti Market Hall - it's an old historical building in the city center, converted into an International Food Court with restaurants from Italy, Portugal, Vietnam, Finnish Coffee shops, souvenir shop, etc.
The building is a very famous lunch place in Helsinki and it's fully packed with locals. From May 1st till September 30th, there is a biggest flea market in Helsinki just at the front of the building which attracts many tourists visiting Helsinki. Occasionally the market hall organizes different kinds of musical and food tasting events, which additionally boost the business of the vendors inside the hall. Besides, we have our own mobile application which allows our customers to order and pay for food online and we just launched our own home delivery system, which works well in winter months or situations like current pandemic. There is a massive potential for business development if someone wants to expand the business or employ more people. In the busies times we have been employing 10 full time and part time personnel. English is widely spoken in Finland, and virtually every Finn can speak English fluently so you can run the business in English language. Our total revenue in 2020 (during the pandemic) was 350 000 EUR!
The restaurant is working and has created a network with returning customers for the past 5 years - on average we are getting 150 lunch people per day which are returning customers, all the rest are new customers and tourists. On the busiest day we have reached 360 portions sales. We are selling the business with concept, menu, customers, supply chain, software know-how and equipment. Training and support is included in the price. There are around 40 sitting places available (common sitting area and our own sitting area). Ready to move in and continue the business from day 1st. Very low lease payments for the premises.
About the location: City Helsinki plans have already been prepared for the Hietalahti market hall area, where the business and residential building base will expand significantly. So this area will
become a denser city than it is today making the business even more profitable.

It's is not included, however, we can arrange you 3-room rental apartment 10 minutes walk away from the restaurant if the accommodation is required as it is very difficult to rent a place in Helsinki if you are coming from outside Finland.
Indoor food hall with a vintage atmosphere featuring many small restaurants for global cuisine in the city center next to the biggest flea market in Helsinki.
2 separate units (15m2 + 18m2 + common sitting area) with plenty of storage area, 3 cold rooms and small office with internet connection, printer, etc for staff meetings. One space is open kitchen with the few sitting places at the bar (with alcohol license which means you can serve alcohol drinks) and the another space is wine bar (with alcohol license - licensed for 20 customers at the same time) with the sitting area between them for customers who would like to eat only (without drinking alcohol). Both units are located at the main entrance door of the market hall, so basically the very first thing visitors see when they enter the building is our kitchen.
All the business permissions and licenses included
Sky is the limit. Possibilities are endless for hard working people with vision. There is an option to expand the business into the old market hall (Vanha kauppahalli) and Hakaniemi market hall - basically within a year you can have 3 restaurants location in the city and triple the revenue of the company.
Our concept is cooking from scratch using daily prepared food and freshly prepared Japanese ramen noodles. At the time being we are the most popular and most busy restaurant inside the market hall.
Market hall is open from 8.00 AM until 6 PM on weekdays and 10.00 PM on weekends
