So, Tré Wilcox wants to open an Italian restaurant; say, me too! (Sure, why not.) Or, like, maybe you're interested? Because, turns out, it just ain't that hard to own your own eatery -- all you need are 395,000 dollar bills. Everything else is provided for you -- if, that is, you purchase La Paesana on Lovers Lane, just off Lemmon Avenue. Maybe you know the place by its former moniker: La Trattoria Lombardi.
The Italian eatery's for sale on eBay at this very moment: "Turn Key Restaurant in Upscale Dallas Neighborhood," see? And "the location is very upscale and the ambience is unmatched," says the seller, and never mind the typos. And, hey, The Dallas Morning News love, love, loves it: "La Paesana is the place to go when you want Italian food just like your mom and dad raved about." Only, be warned, as there are a few caveats:
The location still has 6 months left on a service contract through our company on all equipment and air conditioning units that we will extend to the new owners for 6 months after completion of the sale.
This location is in a high rent high high return area. If you are looking for a small nickel and dime "Mom & POP" location this is not for you.
The actual property itself is a lease but all contents are part of the sale. This location is currently operational and bringing in a steady stream of income with a full staff.
