The Bridge Restaurant has been serving delicious food to locals and travelers to the Lake Champlain region since 1978. It is conveniently located on the corner of VT Route 17 and VT Route 125 less than a half mile from the Lake Champlain Bridge to New York State.
The business operates year-round, with a staff of 3+/- full and 3+/-part time employees. The restaurant offers home-cooked meals for breakfast, lunch and dinner six days a week. The restaurant also carries a wide selection of beer and wine offerings. There is also a seasonal take out window that operates from late Spring through Fall.
This long standing, extremely successful business generates an average of nearly $500,000 gross sales annually. There are opportunities to expand by adding to the current offerings and/or developing ancillary business lines to generate additional revenue. The current owner would like to relocate and is looking for a new owner to infuse energy into the business to bring it to the next level.
