With its owners retiring, Barry's Village Deli in Newton's hamlet of Waban is up for sale, both the business and the building at 6 Windsor Rd., Boston Restaurant Talk reports. President of the Newton-Needham Chamber and Village14.com blogger Greg Reibman shared the news on Twitter.
The asking price for the 2,400-square foot space, plus a basement, is $395,000; the listing notes any buyer would be on the hook for inventory. It also says there's room to grow the business, which recently brought in $1.3 million in gross revenues: Space available next door could allow the current deli to expand, potentially offering dinner and/or additional seating. The addition of a liquor license and/or increasing the company's catering options could help, too, the listing notes.
Barbara and Barry Rodman opened the traditional Jewish deli in 1970, with New York-style deli meats and salads. In 1980, Arthur Rodman and partner, Lisa, took over the business, which had grown to offer dine-in seating and full service. Barry's Village Deli is known for its knishes, kugels, potato latkes, and sandwiches. Before they fully retire, the owners would provide training and support to any new buyer.
