Old West in Modern day AZ: Food, Class#6LL, Regular Repeat Clientele
Seasonal Opportunity! Repeat Clientele Pack the dance floor daily
EXPERIENCE THE HIGHLY REGULAR CLIENTELE PACKING THE HOUSE EACH DAY DURING THE WINTER VISITOR'S SEASON. Highly demanded Western-Themed Venue with direct Highway visibility at entrance (less than 6 miles) from some of the most popular attractions in Arizona: Tonto National Forest, Canyon Lake's full Marina, the Apache Trail, Lost Dutchman Park, and authentic 100+ year old Goldfield Ghost Town and Tortilla Flats located in Arizona's Superstition Mountains.
Valuable Class 6 Liquor License (dine in & take-out) and much of the 5 acres remain undeveloped for an expansion opportunity into the final stop for restaurant take out, sundries, beverages, camping, hiking and boating supplies to the estimated 600,000 annual visitors. This 22 year old existing restaurant is a thriving community staple with live music packing the dance floor 6 days/week and known for its "Broasted Chicken" and family style dining. Profitable now as a single-dimensional western themed restaurant despite the limited (word of mouth) advertising. The 5 acres still has plenty of room for expansion (water line prep complete) without encumbering the views of the Superstition Mountains. Existing 4000+ square foot indoor facilities seat 150 in the dining room and 450 outdoors on the 10,000 square foot patio. Outside there is an elevated stage with lockable band storage area, a retail store, a barn and a chuckwagon, practically unlimited parking for cars and horses, plus 3 rental apartments. Prompted by a 2015 study, the Fairmont Resorts made a significant investment in remodeling and rebranding their facilities based on the Arizona market demand for Western-Themed facilities. Scottsdale's JW Marriott made a similar investment last year. Located just a few miles from the only authentic historic western towns in Phoenix Metro (the 6th largest population in the U.S.), Filly's is at the right place at the right time. Owners since 2005 ready to retire. The establishment has also built a solid team of loyal, reliable employees, many of whom have been working there since day one, available to stay on with the new ownership. It is located in the Phoenix East Valley on Apache Trail (ranked No.49 on TripAdvisor among 1614 attractions in Arizona), 6 miles from Goldfield Ghost Town, 2 miles from a top rated HOA RV Campground, 17 miles from the nearest airport, 30 miles from Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport, 8 miles from Gold Canyon, home of 5 championship golf courses, and 30 miles from Scottsdale Arizona. Whether you want a management-run restaurant or want to roll your sleeves up and run it yourself, this is the ultimate opportunity for anyone who wants to live in Arizona, have fun and make a great living! The owners have worked hard to build it into the solid business it is today and it comes with significant potential to increase profitability.
