Beautifully Renovated Pub in Very Busy Industrial Area

NO CORNERS CUT ON THIS RENO!! What a great renovation on this 4500 +/- sqft pub on a very busy main street, the place was done from top to bottom. There is a great kitchen with tons of hood fan, a well laid out kitchen with all the equipment to turn out fantastic food.

The front of house is VERY clean and contemporary with lots of natural light, a great bar with updated sound & video systems. There is a private room that can be booked for business meetings, sales seminars, birthday parties or Stag/Stagettes. There is the capability to run separate Audio/Video in the VIP Room as well.

There is so much to this space that you really need to call me to arrange a private tour of this...

I have sold a Business at Listing # 220.

Buy your own Ricky’s All Day Grill franchise restaurant in South Calgary.

Come and have a look at this well run Franchise restaurant on busy Macleod Trail is a fantastic location for a family run business. Located right next to a Holiday Inn and in a very busy mall, there is tons of drive by traffic at all times of the day and night. The restaurant is very clean and fully staffed, it just needs an energetic new owner to take over the reigns.

There is a great patio out front that is perfect fo the upcoming summer season, and not a regual feature of a Ricky's franchise. The cash flow is strong and has the potential to be increased with some localized marketing. The current owners are ready to retire and spend more time with the grandkids.

I have sold a Business at Listing # 216 in Calgary.

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 on the main floor as well as lots of storage in the full basement. You have lots of parking...

This is VERY rare opportunity to purchase a one-of-a-kind business in Calgary. This is the first time to the market, and is Calgary's only indoor paintball field. Over 28,000 sq.ft., a large 105ft X 180ft turfed playing field, Tournament bunkers, netting & bleachers. There is such an upside to the future of this business, it is amazing! Currently offering corp team building, birthday parties & theme nights. Lots of room to increase business with the right marketing and extended hours of operation. The next step would be to put in a small kitchen/restaurant. There is also a new retail store on site selling all the equipment for the serious player. This is a new facet of the business and has just started growing. This deal also includes...

Covid 19 Payroll Subsidy Info
For employers, we are getting more detail on the payroll subsidy:
https://www.singleton.com/2020/03/covid-19-the-canada-emergency-wage-subsidy/
  • $847 per employee per week or 75% of up to $58,700 salary, whichever is less
  • Still retroactive to March 15 (so far)
  • Expectation is that you don’t cut employee wages
  • Business must demonstrate/prove a minimum revenue loss of 30%
  • Federal government will be introducing severe penalties for abuse of the program
  • Application process expected to be announced within the next 2 weeks
  • No limit on business size

For those who were considering using the job-sharing option, this is now, for most businesses, a better option.


Next Steps:  I have started building detailed 90-day business financial plans for some of you.  This provides a specific list of actions based on your own financial P&L statements that includes estimating the impact of using the government programs and includes a list of other actions you can do to help your business weather the storm.  If any of you are interested in having this done for your business, contact me.

 

If any of you will need a business loan to survive a prolonged event, but would not otherwise qualify for a loan, there is money available from the government.  https://www.bdc.ca/en/pages/special-support.aspx.  


Small businesses with a payroll between $50K to $1M should look to the Canada Emergency Business Account https://www.canada.ca/en/department-finance/news/2020/03/additional-support-for-canadian-businesses-from-the-economic-impact-of-covid-19.html  As described in my emails last week, this if interest-free, $40,000 where you can be forgiven up to $10,000 if you pay it back before the end of 2022.


Here is a description of the application process and the questions you will likely be asked https://www.krp.ca/lending-rules-for-bdc-covid-19-relief-program-take-shape


This is the last week you have to re-plan your businesses for the next 2-3 months to stay in front of the situation.  If you don’t know what you need to be doing and how much of it you need to be doing, please contact me.   I want to see you all survive this event as best as possible!


Next 2 weeks, the focus will need to shift to full-implementation of that plan and start looking for short-term business opportunities with customers who are less impacted by COVID-19.  This is a very tactical that looks a lot like war-time situation management.   Even with a plan, the situation going forward will be fluid (some good, some bad).


Later in April,  your planning will need to focus on re-positioning your businesses to be ready to sling-shot out of this event! 

 

Please continue to pay strict attention to all of the hygiene/safety recommendations and emotional/mental health issues discussed here over the past two weeks!   Let’s do everything we can to keep our employees, customers, suppliers an colleagues healthy so we can all get back to work faster!

Here is a new listing that I am happy to post at Rural Rocky View MD, Rural Rocky View County.
STUNNING ROCKY MOUNTAIN VIEWS. This land has been in the same family since 1936. Not very often does a property of this type come to market. This 90.36ac has one of the most spectacular views of the Rocky Mountains in the area, from the potential building site, you get a 180 degree panoramic view, it is absolutely breathtaking. The attached photo's don't do the view justice, you need to see it in person. We are happy to set up an appointment for you to come out and view this once in a lifetime opportunity to 90ac that is 16km to Calgary and 33 km from downtown.
