It’s rare that we come across a business in Belize for less than $50,000. Why? Because it takes approx 6 months and approx $10,000 USD in fees to obtain licensing and permits (and you need olive for that 6 months with no income, which I always tell people to figure on $2,500 per month). So, an operational business in Belize has an inherent value of around $25,000 – $30,000 + it’s equipment and cash flow because just to start a new business it will cost you at least $30,000 just to be legal and licensed (then you start buying equipment, furnishings, stock, signage for your new business).
This is why I am sending you this email (before I even list these businesses for sale on our website and third party business sites – one of the benefits of being a subscriber to my newsletter).
Here are the rare opportunities (and why each is great by itself or even better together):
A Provisioning and Concierge Service:
Online ordering (fully operational website with online payment options for clients). Customer orders food, beer, Liqour and you do the provisioning, buying the items and having them in the condo or rental home on the customers arrival.
Wholesale accounts in place for the food and alcohol – no stocking required, no waste, no inventory, just mark up each item.
The owner will SEND ALL OF HIS CLIENTS to you from the Main business. Owner will also advertise you on more than 2 dozen signs, in printed pieces and an online ad on the Main business website, with a click through to your site – and you can market the business yourself for additional revenue.
Turn-Key, easy business. Available with or without “Carry-All” vehicle
$39,500 asking price w vehicle / $24,500 without vehicle
SECOND – A Boat Shuttle & Tour Operator Business
The only one of it’s kind. comes complete with marketing materials, website (when customers can book online) and a 24 ft, 18 passenger pontoon boat with a 150HP Yamaha motor.
“water taxi” services run on a regular schedule, but also you can sell a “sunset cruise” option for additional income. Again, signage and advertising from the Main company will send customers directly to you.
$49,000 (reduced asking price – we will list this for $59,000 so this is for my newsletter subscribers only as a “pre-listing price).
Sale includes boat, boat registration, captains license, merchandising materials, permits and licenses. Additional services such as snorkel tours, fishing tours, etc are sub-contracted out to other specialized tour operators and you will receive a 15% commission on those items (thus you can offer your clients a full range of services).
Combined Purchase: Purchase both business entities together and get multiple income streams from the clients.
Total discounted combination price is $74,500
I have not listed this yet and am keeping these as “pocket listings”, hirer for the next week. I want to give everyone that subscribes to my newsletter the first chance to take a look and make an offer. If you are seriously interested, please contact me (serious inquiries only). In general, when a business opportunity like this becomes available, they will generally sell and close within 60 days or less as you just can’t get into owning a business in Belize for much less, even when going through all of the time and trouble to create a new business fly yourself from the ground up.
The owner/operator had a new partner pre-covid that was responsible for running operations for this part of the business and that person decided to move back to their home country amidst the covid crisis so the current owner does not have time to run all of the entities himself and thus will be available for support and advice and will be sending clients to you on a regular basis through the main operation. These were both “auxiliary businesses” that are difficult to run along with the existing business operations.
This is an awesome opportunity for anyone looking to make the move to Belize and start Your Caribbean life – buy one or buy both. While pricing is no negotiable, the owner will consider some financing as well, so terms are very flexible. The owner will remain in Belize and continue to operate the main business, so will be readily available.
If you have serious interest, please contact me at: firstname.lastname@example.org
to discuss and arrange a telephone call so that I might give you more specifics and details.
Two businesses, a boat and a new life in the Caribbean for under $75,000 is a rare find.
