Rare Calgary Nightclub For Sale

There are not many places you can put a nightclub in Calgary, so this is a rare opportunity to buy one without having to go through all of the City red tape. It is a large facility at 8000+ square feet, with good room flow and the ability to run 2 different functions at the same time, like live music in one room and a DJ in the other.

If you are interested in getting into the nightclub business this is a great chance to open up and start making money. Please call me to discuss the details of this business and arrange a tour of the room.

Legendary Country Saloon For Sale

This is one of those places that very seldom come to market. It has been operating for many years and is a staple of the community, having served multiple generations of families in this great area. Fully renovated and clean as a whistle, this is a pub operators dream. The warm and friendly atmosphere is why they come and the great down home service why they continue to come. Pool tables and wide-open floor plan make it a great place to spend a few hours chatting with friends, having a cold beer and eating the great comfort food they are known for.

There is lots of parking out front and did I mention that they are the only pub in town! Call me and we can go over all the details and set up a tour so you...

Here Is A New Listing That I Just Posted At 3 2220 20 AV NW in Calgary


Here is a new listing that I am happy to post at 3 2220 20 AV NW in Calgary.
Pizza Delivery and Take-Out locations in NW Calgary are hard to come by, and this one is in a great upscale area. It was built all new a few years ago, from scratch, so the equipment is in great shape and the store is VERY clean. There is the chance of expanding into the next door bay if you would like to make the space larger and offer more on the menu. All you would need to do is put in a vented kitchen...and the sky's the limit! The current operation only runs on VERY limited hours, about 22hrs a week right now, so you could make this an EXTREMELY profitable little pizza place. Call to get all the info and discuss it in more detail.

COVID 19 - The Emerging "Stress Factor"

In talking to many of you this week, the number one emerging issue is stress.   The rapid rate of change being imposed on us, our employees, suppliers and customers is unprecedented.  The uncertainty regarding our health, both physical and financial, stemming from a dangerous virus racing around the globe is overwhelming many people.


The result is often emotional – anxiety, fear, and depression.  This in turn impacts morale and mental health, both yours and everyone you work with – the ones working on-site, the ones working remotely and the ones now on EI waiting to come back.


They need your leadership.  This is not the zombie apocalypse because we can do a lot to get this under control.  Four things to consider:


  1. Calgary and Edmonton are very different from New York or Milan who have 7.5-10,000 people per km2.  We have only 1,300 (natural advantage in physical distancing).

  2. Calgary and other Albertans are generally following physical distancing and self-isolation, except for a few ass-hole snow birds who now face fines of up to $750,000 and 6 months in jail if they don’t go straight home and self-isolate (today’s news).

  3. Alberta has been aggressively testing our people at four times the rate of Quebec.  We got ahead of this thing early.

  4. Toilet paper is on it’s way.  They are making more.


Human beings are hard-wired to be social. Remember to reach out to a friend, colleague, employee, customer or supplier to see how they are doing (phone, text, facetime, video meetings, email even).   There is no reason physical distancing needs to become human isolation. 


Here are three resources to help you deal with stressed out employees, colleagues, suppliers and customers.  More in the coming days:

Employee Morale: Mental Health & Resiliency for your employees

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
