A full-service salon located on the Caribbean island of Ambergris Caye, Belize. This long-standing business has been serving the community, both ex-pats, Belizeans along with tourists and “winter snowbirds” for many years.
Successful with a regular clientele, this is one of only a few salons in town and the only full-service salon on the entire island. The salon features three stylist stations, two washing stations, a hair drying chair station, a separate room for massage services, and a separate room for acupuncture service (both are sublets). Additionally, there is a mani-pedi area with chairs, tables, and supplies (this is a subset as well) and any or all stylist chairs can be rented out. There is a sizable sitting/waiting area that is attractively decorated, has retail sales shelving and displays, and a coffee/water/wine station for customers to relax and enjoy.
This business has excellent sales history, accounting and documentation of sales for the last 6 years.  Month by sales and year over year comps, along with P&L statements since inception are available for review by serious parties.
The current owner is willing to stay on and rent as a stylist if desired by the new owner.
