Business Overview

After more than 18 years Screamers is on the market! Don’t miss the opportunity to own and operate this long established and successful food/ice cream business in the quaint Village of Shabbona. Many years of great food, delicious ice cream and a commitment to service has earned the love and support of the local community. So much so that business actually increased during the recession and the pandemic! Business also gets a significant increase in summertime sales from activity at local Shabbona Lake State Park and other nearby campgrounds. Featuring indoor and outdoor dining with picnic tables. You can’t beat the high visibility location right on US Highway 30 at the eastern entrance to Shabbona. The current owner added a drive through window which boosted sales significantly. The list price includes the business, real estate and equipment. Featuring a newer roof plus two a/c units including a new 6 ton rooftop unit and a 4 ton a/c unit on the ground. Inside there is new tile in the dining room, hall and bathroom. A new storage shed houses two freezers and one refrigerator unit with plenty of room left over for dry storage. Outside there are two refrigerator units and one dry storage unit for convenient off hour vendor deliveries. Restaurant equipment includes a Stoelting ice cream machine (customers love the proprietary ice cream recipe!), sandwich bay (two years new), slushie machine and the bread oven makes absolutely delicious bread for sandwiches and buns. The parking lot has been resurfaced and features 23 parking spaces with 6 for drive thru waiting. The current owner has elected to operate seasonally mid March though mid November which provides an opportunity to increase sales by being open year round. Don’t wait any longer. This is your chance to be your own boss and call your own shots
