Vast experience in the food business.

Nick Kenos has been immersed in the food business his whole life. As a third-generation food industry specialist, he has bought, sold, created and revived more than a dozen thriving businesses that span the wholesale and retail spectrum. He was the former owner of one of Melbourne’s most beloved and critically acclaimed cafes, Three Bags Full, along with other well-known industrial cafes, food vans, specialty coffee and espresso bars.

Beyond cafes and retail, Nick’s involvement in his family’s large-scale and highly successful food manufacturing businesses has seen him also develop extensive experience in food manufacturing and distribution.

Few people understand the structure, the mechanics and the day-to-day challenges of operating in the food business the way Nick does. His industry insight and first-hand experience as an owner-operator many times over are the foundation of his business broking success.

Nick’s deep understanding of the unique aspects of the industry enables him to build tailored sales strategies that yield the very best results for each business rather than relying on a generic blanket formula. His reputation for integrity and transparency are complemented by his genuine helpfulness and approachable nature.

As a life-long ‘foodie’, Nick’s vast personal and professional networks keep him connected to thousands of potential buyers and leading industry figures. Strong relationships are the hallmark of Nick’s professional style and he is committed to finding the right purchaser for each business, leaving no stone unturned in his quest to find that buyer every time.
