DoI claims cafe site has 'thriving potential'
The search has begun for a new tenant for the Dhoon Glen kiosk.
The Department of Infrastructure is inviting expressions of interest from people who want to run the café which it’s described as an ‘attractive business proposition’.
It claims it has ‘thriving potential’ and wants to hear from ‘dynamic individuals and passionate food enthusiasts’.
The last tenants – Little Shed at The Glen - made the decision not to renew their lease in January after three years.
At the time they wrote: "It’s been a head and heart dilemma for us as we LOVE the place but we haven’t been immune from the spiralling costs our industry has faced - it’s been heartbreaking to see how badly this has affected hospitality businesses on the Island.
“And, notwithstanding DEFA and DoI's efforts, a rent increase along with lease terms which we would find difficult to work with has sealed the decision for us.”
Anyone interested in taking on the Dhoon Glen site – which has an estimated rental of £4,800 plus VAT per annum - has until 23 February to apply.
