Waikato Bay of Plenty Harness have purchased the lease of The Clubhouse Sports Bar and Café, located at Cambridge Raceway.
Waikato Bay of Plenty Harness is the racing club which holds race meetings at Cambridge Raceway.
“Cambridge Raceway had been leasing The Clubhouse to outside operators for the past eleven years,” Cambridge Raceway CEO Dave Branch said.
“We’ve developed a strategic plan with the help of our accountants Deloitte Hamilton and during that process we identified the re-purchase of The Clubhouse lease as a key opportunity to drive revenue.
“This purchase gives us full control of the on-course experience for our patrons, creates synergies with our current bar operation and as an already profitable business it creates a great platform for us to grow off.”
Waikato Bay of Plenty Harness will take over the lease on December 10, Branch said it would be business as usual at The Clubhouse until mid-January when a complete re-brand and interior upgrade will take place.
