Market Description

The business is located on beautiful Vancouver Island offering a lifestyle and access to the world's greatest cost effective family and outdoor recreational choices. If you are looking to have a good quality of life and a low stress operating business then this opportunity is for you. The site can be relocated and if you wish to stay at the current location, the premises are affordably leased based upon the business cash flow, and in line with standards for this industry. The current lease has one year remaining with an option to renew for an additional three years. The landlord is very happy with the current tenancy, and would be open to a longer term renewal. The business could also be relocated to several available and appropriately zoned properties in the area.

The two competitors in the ara are large corporate entities, but our contractors, commercial customers and home owners in the area appreciate working with an independent operator. Readi-mix concrete is a preferred building material in the area, and there is no threat that this business model will be taken over by Dot Com services or online disruption that many other industries have fallen to. Current planning for the area promises continued demand, and the owner operator status of this business is a major differentiator that keeps clients coming back. Owner operators are proud to provide the products or services in the area. We literally are putting the foundations into the communities we service. A personable and organized operator can add value to this business and can depend upon quality material supplies available in the area. An operator with several class three licences in the family could increase margins by cutting costs.
