This well-known upscale bar and restaurant is located in the beautiful beach town of Gulf Shores, Alabama, which is a popular vacation destination for many all throughout the country. Having been in business since 2004 they have developed a loyal following of both locals and tourists. Visiting the restaurant is an excellent way to escape the typical beach fare and step into a more sophisticated and personal atmosphere.
Their menu includes only the finest dishes of highest quality. These include lobster, filet, rack of lamb, etc… They also offer a wide variety of wine selections. The owners have grown the business with very minimal marketing. Most of their success has simply been from word of mouth due to their great customer service, great food, and an experience that makes customers come back.
The restaurant is widely known and well respected throughout the restaurant industry along the Gulf Coast. A new owner could increase traffic by marketing the restaurant to new tourists that are unaware of the restaurant since it is off the beaten path. The owners have not only started and ran a very successful business, but has also structured it in a way to make it easy for a new owner. They have streamlined the process of managing the business and are only open 30 hours a week. This creates an opportunity for a new owner to grow the business by expanding the hours of operations.
Future success should be inevitable as the Alabama Gulf Coast and Baldwin County as a whole continue to see rapid growth. Today, out of Alabama’s sixty-seven counties, Baldwin County remains one of the top three fastest growing. The U.S. Census Bureau ranks the fastest growing communities in the U.S., and Baldwin came in at number twelve! This outranks cities like Florida’s tourism mecca in Orlando, and even Raleigh, North Carolina. Also, a study by Georgia Southern University shows this trend has been going on for a while. It concludes that between 1980 and 2005, Baldwin’s retiree population jumped by two hundred percent. A new study from the University of Alabama’s Center for Business and Economic Research predicts another 100-thousand people could soon relocate to Baldwin County. This means more customers jockeying for a table. This is a great business opportunity for an investor and anyone looking to move to the beautiful and growing Gulf Coast of Alabama!
