This is a well-built operation that has a corner on their market area.  For the last 9 years they have built a strong brand in the communities they serve and have seen growth through stable repeat business and word of mouth advertising.  With exception to a couple weeks in May the owner is not driving and delivering inflatables unless he has to.  His primary role is managing his employees and schedules.  They have an office manager that also works as an inside sales person; however, many of their customers have been repeat customers for years and will book parties well in advance.  On average the owner spends about 20 hours per week working in the business.  There are good growth opportunities in the surrounding communities.  The owners have opted out of reaching into these areas too much, as the growth from their current market has been acceptable.  So if you are looking for an opportunity to own and manage a successful rental business this is your chance.  The seller is committed to a smooth transition of ownership.

 This is a great opportunity for an individual or individuals that are seeking a life style change and are passionate about restaurants.  The Restaurant is located on Table Rock Lake and is situated near a public boat dock.  The entire restaurant and patio seating area has been completely renovated and significant exterior updated and signage has been added.  This is a clean well organized restaurant with "Zero" health inspection issues.  There are also newly updated living quarters (app. 2,500 SF (M/L) incorporated within the same building as the restaurant.  The current owners are relocating.

 This popular resort / bar and grill is a must see destination for all travelers to this popular lake.  The property is in mint condition and offers a huge amount of growth potential.  Currently the business operates as a seasonal cash cow generating $3 MM (+/-) in revenue and $1.63 MM (+/-) in earnings per year (5 months per season).  The location has grown due to the beauty of the property, consistently great service, and fun atmosphere. 

The main role of the current owner in recent years has been property promotion and development.  He will help out on busy days acting as a floor manager and filling in anywhere that needs him.  The numbers shown reflect hiring a floor manager to create an even more passive opportunity for the next owner.  The numbers reflect a more passive owner who is not required to work in the day to day operations.  With the necessary management already accounted for in the numbers, a new owner could travel and manage from afar with proper personnel.  Upon transition a new owner would need to replace the current office manager and restaurant/bar manager as well as hire a floor manager (all of which are accounted for in the earnings represented).  The current owner and managers are willing to provide a reasonable transition period to get any replacement personnel trained and up to speed.  The owner is ready to pursue other business interests and is committed to a smooth transition of ownership.
