Santa Cruz, CA

Business Description & Intention: This is a successful, green certified custom-screen printing company based in Santa Cruz, California and has huge potential. We are currently fulfilling local businesses promotional needs. Being the only Green-Certified screen print shop in Santa Cruz & the SF Bay Area attracts a lot of diverse clientele. All this company needs is someone who has the passion, capital and time to build it into a national and international company. Since the owner also directs a successful music school, he only averages 15 hours a week for the last 9 years. Imagine someone putting his or her full time and investment into it! I care about the future success of this company so I’d like to work with the new owner(s) to make sure that the transition goes smoothly. I know the biggest fear of a new buyer is that once the owner goes, so do the clients but I can assure you that my clients trust me. Therefore I am offering 1 month (10 hours per week / 40 hours for 1 month) of consultation to make sure the new owner(s) understands the flow of this business (with the possibility of extending consultation). My intention is to keep business moving smoothly through this transition. I am offering to introduce my clients to the new owner(s) as 100% committed to environmentally friendly screen printing & continuing the same business model of high quality and great costumer service. Being in this business for 9 years, my clients trust what I say and what I suggest.

The design was recently the subject of a feature article in a leading restaurant equipment magazine, which commented that the kitchen “could well be one of the most efficient in town.” Up-to-date equipment is saving thousands of dollars in annual utility costs. The restaurant/bar is attractively furnished including valuable sports memorabilia. It is in a historic building has been fully renovated and modernized from the foundation up.

Family Restaurant Calif Cusine with Bar, Lease to Buy, Santa Cruz Co.

Santa Cruz, CA

This is an unusual opportunity in that it is a 'Lease-to-Buy' opportunity. This is a 4,000 foot contemporary restaurant inside an historical building that opened last year. The owner invested over $400,000 setting up this attractive restaurant in a 100-year-old historic building (which the owner owns). The atmosphere is similar to Chili’s or Applebee’s with an impressive dining room and bar with an outside dining patio. The owner redesigned the restaurant and bar but feels that the restaurant will reach peak income faster if run by an experienced restaurateur. The restaurant is fully staffed with experienced employees. More information is available and the owner is willing to sit down and talk with you. Let us know what ideas you have for putting a good deal together for both sides.
