Fantastic Contemporary Restaurant in Trendy Area

“Contemporary” and “Trendy” are words that are easy to use to describe this restaurant that is in the heart of this South Calgary neighborhood. Lots of vehicle as well as excellent walking traffic are big selling points for this particular location.

The interior is nicely laid out and it has great color and design elements that would allow a buyer to adapt it to almost any style or type of concept. Lots of windows give you a bright happy feeling, and a night is very urban and intimate.

The patio is a huge hit with the loyal local crowd and has been a great addition to the business. The kitchen is equipped with everything you would need and is clean and organized....

Here is a New Restaurant for Sale Listing in Calgary. If you would like further information or a tour of the site please call me at (403) 259-8210 #.

INCREDIBLE CHARACTER SPACE

The look and feel of this space is not something that comes to the market very often. Located in a stunning historic building with amazing warmth and character, you could maintain the current style of operation or change it to a fantastic Gastro Pub with very little cost.

The Open Kitchen concept and well located Bar are inviting to customers and adds to the ambiance and “showmanship” potential for anyone with culinary skills. The equipment is very well maintained and exceptionally clean which is a reflection of the rest of the space. High ceilings, neutral colors and wonderful wood floors enhance the historic feel of this restaurant.

There is a great prep area as well as walk-in refrigeration...

Here Is A New Listing That I Just Posted At Calgary


Here is a new listing that I am happy to post at Calgary.

Fully Built Out and Equipped 1700+/- SqFt Restaurant Space for Lease

This is a vacant restaurant space that is ready for your concept, just a quick make over and you are in business. The space was completely renovated less than 18 months ago, and it was VERY well done. There is no venting in the kitchen, and it is not feasible to install without a large cost, so this will need to be a concept with no “grease laden vapor”.

 Some of the focal points are;

  • Commercial dishwasher area
  • Walk-in Cooler and Freezer
  • Large Prep Area suitable for catering
  • Take n Go Cooler
  • Cold Prep Table Counters
  • TV Systems for Menus
  • Bose Sound System
  • 2 Washrooms

 The area is very busy with traffic at all times of the day and night, this is a great opportunity in one of Calgary’s most vibrant communities. It was also previously licensed for Liquor with the AGLC

Misura Berteit & Associates - Resources for Businesses during COVID-19

We at Misura Berteit & Associates understand that the events of the last few weeks have left a lot of “unanswer-able” questions.  While we don’t have the answers, we do feel that there are some resources available out there.  We encourage you to review and keep informed with the latest updates:  


1. Government of Canada’s website: Coronavirus disease (COVID-19): Resources for Canadian Businesses:    https://www.tradecommissioner.gc.ca/campaign-campagne/ressources-entreprises-COVID-19-business-resources.aspx?lang=eng

2.    Government of Canada’s website:  Canada’s COVID-19 Economic Response Plan: Support for Canadians and Businesses:   https://www.canada.ca/en/department-finance/news/2020/03/canadas-covid-19-economic-response-plan-support-for-canadians-and-businesses.html

3. Government of Alberta website: COVID -19 supports for Albertans:  https://www.alberta.ca/covid-19-supports-for-albertans.aspx

These pages give several links for questions surrounding:


-    Supporting our employees
-    Financial implications and business preparedness
-    Business travel and events
-    Exporting and doing business in international markets


While we feel that all these issues may not be relevant to each of us and there are (still) no firm answers, at least this is a good start.  If you have discovered a good resource – please share it with us!  We’d love to be able to pass onto our clients and entrepreneurs the networks and resources available out there.  

As always, we’re here to support you in any way we can including:


-    Setting up teleconference or video conference meetings 

-    We can send you links to upload your information to so it can be delivered to us digitally and encrypted

-    We have a fax machine; while this is generally thought of as outdated technology, it may still come in handy if that’s the delivery method you prefer to use during this period of social distancing

-    Call us for courier / pick-up outside your door to our door

-    General calls; we know that businesses can feel isolated at times like this – feel free to reach out to us as an entrepreneur who just needs to talk.  We may not have the answers but we are business owners ourselves and just talking can alleviate some of the stress sometimes.

Business Owner Update - Friday March 27, 2020

Business Owner Update - Friday March 27, 2020


Today the Federal Government and Bank of Canada finally made key announcements to help small businesses:


  • Increased Payroll Subsidies up to 75% - This will be back-dated to March 15.  No link or details yet on the limitations or qualification. I will get them to you as soon as they are posted.  Here is the announcement https://twitter.com/i/broadcasts/1kvKpXdndQmKE
  • Government guaranteed, interest free small business loans up to $40,000 – this is a program where, if you go to your bank to borrow money to get through the next few months, the government of Canada will be the guarantor.   Under some circumstances (no details yet), 25% may become forgivable.
  • Bank of Canada drops Prime Rate to 0.25% - this makes the cost of borrowing as close to “free” as it gets.  This is the time for you to replace as much high-cost debt with new low-cost debt.


In addition, you get a deferral of GST remittances on top of all the other deferral of payment programs announced over the past 10 days.  You’ll have to pay your GST owing eventually, but consider the money is better in your pocket for the time being.


These will help those of you who will be able to find work to keep the doors open and if the Alberta Government doesn’t order a lockdown.  If you need to shut the doors, the cheap loans and payment deferrals will help you to weather the storm and re-open later.  


Let’s address the potential of a lock-down.  Yesterday, the Alberta government admitted it is preparing an essential services list. This is a prerequisite to doing a lockdown.  As I reported to you earlier this week, the Alberta list will be based on the Ontario essential services list, likely with more extensive leniency for the oil and gas sector (re-attached).   This is not something the Alberta Government wants to do, but only if covid19 gets out of control.    That number is much higher than we are now (check my website if you like numbers).  However, politics are politics and we still might see one.  


If the government imposes one, my forecast is that we will need to see case numbers trending up significantly (i.e. additional cases each day are more than the additional cased from the day before) for 2-3 more days in a row and the Canadian Emergency Response Benefits become available so the additional layoffs get paid by the Feds, not the Province (i.e. April 6).  I’ll be keeping watch over these numbers for you. 


For you convenience, here is new link summarizing all the Federal program announcements (not yet updated from today). https://www.canada.ca/en/department-finance/economic-response-plan.html


Let’s do everything we can in our workplaces, with our employees, customers and suppliers to plank this outbreak so we can keep businesses open and everyone working!
