ROOSTER BROTHER, ''The Store for Cooks and Those who Love Them'' is the trademark of an iconic business with a solid base of returning customers. Located on the banks of the Union River, ROOSTER BROTHER is well known throughout Downeast Maine and worldwide. Customers can select a cup of coffee from the exceptional selection of coffees roasted on premises then leisurely browse the floor of specialty cookware, linens and beautiful things for the home, and another floor of specialty food, wine, cheese. The third floor contains a commercial baking kitchen, inventory storage, and more retail space if needed. This stately Victorian building dates to 1893, which was then the largest (12,000 + GA) wooden building and the Odd Fellows Hall.
This ''turn key'' operation with very strong financials, comprehensive retail systems, intellectual property, commercial kitchen equipment and extensive inventory are all part of this attractive opportunity. Located in the Ellsworth Historic District on .83 acres with ample parking, lawn with picnic tables, 200 feet of river frontage and great exposure with a July traffic count of 18,000 vehicles a day.
The owners of Rooster Brother were the 2023 recipients of the Ellsworth Chamber of Commerce Top Draw Award. This is a testament to years of hard work and dedication to business and community.
