Dallas Bicycle Cafe seeking buyer
The shop announced it was on sale on Facebook.
DALLAS Dallas Bicycle Cafe owner Armando Guerrero would like to sell Dallas Bicycle Cafe and chose an interesting method to announce it: on Facebook.
"DALLAS BICYCLE CAFE IS FOR SALE , if interested email to Armando@dallasbicyclecafe.com, or firstname.lastname@example.org" was the update posted on the restaurant's Facebook page.
The place has only been open since February. Located off White Rock Lake and boasting a nifty bicycle-themed decor, it positioned itself as a convenient stop for people on their way to or from a lakeside workout. It even has lockers and a bike-storage option.
Commenters speculated that the sale might be connected to Bicycle Cafe's lack of liquor license, or that the problem was the construction. But Dallas Bicycle Cafe posted a comment saying, "Yep, got a better business oportunity [sic]," and that the cafe would stay open while a buyer was sought.
Restaurant manager Jesse said it was a family emergency.
"Business is good, but the problem is that the owners have a family emergency and have to move back to Mexico, that's the only reason they are selling the business," he said. When informed of the Facebook comment, he said, "OK, I think what it was is that Armando was a commercial construction worker, he received a business opportunity back in Mexico -- it's not too clear on me."
