Toast on Main Street, Cullybackey

Toast on Main Street, Cullybackey

A business in Cullybackey has been put on the market for sale with the owners, sisters Lynette Millar and Leanne Wiseman, saying the long hours are “taking their toll”.

The popular eatery on Main Street in the village has been operating for almost a decade and during that time it has built up a busy trade of customers who have appreciated the great food - breakfasts, lunches and dinners - all served up with a smile and at reasonable cost.

Over the last years however Toast has not only become a favourite eating spot, but a central part of the local community. Many days friends meet for a catch-up while generations of family can be seen enjoying food and spending time together… the simple things that bond life and and strengthen relationships in a tight-knit rural village like Cullybackey.

Lynette and Leanne announced their decision - “a time for change” - at the weekend.

“A note to all our lovely customers… We have some news for you all: we have decided to put Toast up for sale. This has been a very hard decision for both of us but the long hours are starting to take their toll and we feel it’s time for a change.

“In the meantime we will be open for business as normal and hope you will all continue to support us.”

The well-known local ladies added:

“Our staff are like a second family to us and we would like to thank them so much for firstly all their hard work, and secondly their support in this difficult decision, they truly are the best!”

The popular premises are on the market with local estate agents Lynn & Brewster, being offered for sale together with the option to purchase the goodwill, fixtures and fittings. The property has a guide price of £295,000.

The premises were extensively refurbished approximately 9 years ago.
