Exciting opportunity to own an established & successful Belmopan business

Situated in the busy center of Belmopan, Cayo District, Corkers Restaurant and Hibiscus Hotel are successful complementary businesses established by the current owners in 2011. This uniquely structured sale presents a golden opportunity for a seamless transition for new ownership to continue this thriving business.

Hibiscus Hotel and Corkers Restaurant are strategically situated in the same commercial complex and complement each other perfectly.

This quiet, yet central location just off the Belmopan Ring Road behind Belize Bank has generated a loyal lunch-time clientele from the surrounding Government, Ministries, Embassies, and banking/business district, many of which are within walking distance. The private car park easily accommodates local drive-in traffic and is a popular destination choice for out-district shoppers. Banks, marketplace, bus terminal, and most government offices all within easy walking distance. The friendly, safe atmosphere ensures a thriving evening bar and restaurant trade.

Whilst the majority of the hotel and restaurant custom is locally generated, tourists use the restaurant as a convenient break as they pass through districts, and the hotel has become popular for an overnight stay to break up longer journeys to and from the airport. The restaurant benefits greatly from its hotel customers. A reliable year-round trade enables sound management budget planning especially during the last 12 months of uncertainty within the tourism industry. Corkers and Hibiscus accept purchase orders making both businesses favorable for ministries, government offices, and many large companies throughout Belize to use and there is already have a strong client base within these sectors.
