Boston Brokers are delighted to welcome to the market Greenwich Deli, a highly rated sandwich shop in Newport, Melbourne. This is a superb opportunity to take on a popular and unusually busy local business in an area teeming with customers which still offers potential for further growth.

This is definitely not your average Sandwich Shop!


Greenwich Deli was first established in 2021, and has been under our client’s ownership since. The business is extremely popular within the local area, building up an excellent reputation and regular customer base.

The business has now come to the open market, albeit reluctantly and with heavy hearts only due to a wish to pursue a change of direction. The vendors are keen to see their beloved Sandwich Shop pass to an ambitious and entrepreneurial new owner (s) who can take this already thriving business to the next level.

The restaurant’s location is well known locally and occupies an ideal prominent corner position on a main road into Newport from the north. It is also a short distance from the town centre, ring road, beach, high street retail shops, amenities and bar and restaurants. Newport/Williamstown is a well-respected, highly populated residential location with a demographic of mainly working professionals and families.

Greenwich Deli, Melbourne’s newest backstreet sandwich shop. Housed in a petite 1920s-era pint-sized milk bar, the slick, bright, white and green shop, is serving up salubrious sandwiches like nobody in the neighbourhood. From Wednesday to Sunday, Greenwich serves up daily specials, alongside menu staples like Chicken Salad Sangas, Ham & Cheese Toasties, Tuna Mellt and the main attraction – Pastrami Reuben. Owner is passionate about food and keeps things simple, but done to perfection. Quality is key as they ferment their own ingredients, sourced only from the best local suppliers and deliver fast and fresh. They also sell some fantastic pantry items to take home and try.

Our client purchased the property in 2020 and undertook a substantial brand new refurbishment, fitting the premises out to the high standard it is currently presented in, including high quality fixtures, fittings and equipment that includes a coffee machine and full commercial kitchen, both of which are owned outright.

Greenwich Deli has built a stellar reputation, known for its unparalleled service, exquisite menu, and attention to detail. The business has flourished under their ownership accruing many regular customers and a burgeoning reputation, as seen by the online ratings and reviews. The business has been a real labour of love for them and they have spent much time and money ensuring it is one of the best sandwich shops in the Melbourne, if not Australia.
