Business Description

Amazing Pub Opportunity with Full Class-C Liquor License w/Carryout!

Chequers Pub and Restaurant was a year-round mainstay in downtown Saugatuck for over 30 years! Now, a local real estate developer is looking for a restaurant entrepreneur to take this once-popular central hotspot to the next level – for the Next 30 years!

Chequers was run as an English Pub, featuring traditional English fare. But this classic pub buildout is perfectly suited for an Irish Pub as well. The business is offered with a fully-equipped kitchen, newly installed HVAC, beautiful coved ceilings, custom-built hand-carved European wood bar with brass foot rails, authentic vintage imported fixtures, and a cozy fireplace!

To build out a restaurant/pub like this would cost close to double the asking price. All equipment has been professionally inspected and cleaned and is in excellent working order.

Also available is an additional 840 sq. foot retail space connected to the pub that can be rented with no additional upfront purchase cost. This space is perfect for a deli, carryout liquor store, promotional pub items/gift shop, or whatever you can dream up. The retail space currently matches the theme of the pub.

Developer/Landlord is willing to give favorable lease terms until the new owner gets their feet on the ground and operational for the 2020 season.

Saugatuck is a popular year-round destination, and for Chicago, is comparable to what the Hamptons is to NYC. Considered one of the most popular harbor villages in the United States, it's small-town America at its best! While visiting the downtown area, you can walk to almost everything. In Saugatuck, you can walk along the boardwalk looking at boats and explore the dockside, browse the many art galleries, take a ride on Lake Michigan in an old fashion paddlewheel boat, or enjoy a show at the Saugatuck Center for the Arts. At Wicks Park, every Wednesday in the summer, visitors enjoy a free outdoor concert. Visitors also enjoy the varied lodging options, vast attraction and entertainment options throughout the area, and the nightlife.

Known as the Art Coast of Michigan, Saugatuck embraces all the arts, including the Culinary Arts. Make Chequers your own and you're sure to be embraced by locals and visitors alike.
