We just wanting to share the good news with you after last weekend’s Café Start Up workshop!
After negotiating with the leasing agent today, the landlord has agreed to contribute to our fitout costs in form of cash- equivalent to 3 mths rent. That’s a saving of $12,500 in rent…this has already paid for our flights to Melbourne, accommodation and for the workshop, many times over…And, they’ve also agreed to 5+7 lease term+option. The centre is now fully leased so although they can’t provide us the exclusivity of rights, they have reassured us that they’ve put restrictions for the other tenants to not supply goods n services beyond their scope.
We’re pretty happy with the outcome of the negotiation so we’ve decided to proceed with them.
Thanks for your advice, we can’t thank you enough. Many many thanks.
