The Flaming Gorge Brewing Company (FGBC), located in Manila, in Daggett County, Utah, is an incredible opportunity for the aspiring or accomplished entrepreneur to enter the restaurant and brewing business! Located just minutes away from Flaming Gorge Reservoir and the thriving outdoor community that has grown up around it, FGBC includes a 2200+/- sq. ft. restaurant sitting on 1.08 acres of prime commercial real estate, plus the associated LLC. ImprovementsFlaming Gorge Brewing Company is currently under construction, and is being carefully designed to marry the more urban aesthetic of a modern brewing company with the rural, mountainous environment of the surrounding area. The result is a classy, contemporary setting perfect for attracting the hungry traveler. Coming in at 2200+/- square feet and two stories, with approximately 270 of frontage along State Route 43, the location and size of the establishment are nearly ideal. The restaurant is right on main street, and is visible to everyone passing through town. The main attractions on the first floor are the bar and seating area. High ceilings and massive, glass garage doors give the space tons of natural lighting, and really make the restaurant seem open and inviting. Hand crafted from pine and other rich woods, the bar is also a sight to behold. It’s hard to think of a better place for a drink. The kitchen and preparation area are located behind the bar. This is where one will find all of the cookware and appliances needed to make the best food and beer in the business. Nearly everything the owner needs to operate will be included with the sale of the property, including a gas grill, electric deep fryer, industrial fridge and freezer, and even the Flaming Gorge Brewing Company LLC and its associated liquor permits. The restaurant also includes the standard two bathrooms needed for a restaurant setting, and is already tied to city water, power, and sewer. The restaurant is rated for a seating capacity of 38-48, and has room for two rows of tables in the main indoor seating area. There is also an outdoor patio space that has the potential to be used for additional outdoor seating. The advertised listing price of $795,000 will be the asking price once the restaurant is fully completed and is no longer under construction, however, in its current unfinished state, a lower price could possibly be negotiated. RecreationThe property’s location is without a doubt one of the grandest in the entire state of Utah. Manila is located right on Flaming Gorge National Park and Reservoir. With a surface area of over 42,000 acres, the lake is actually the largest reservoir in Wyoming, and stretches over 90 miles long, with 350+ miles of shoreline. You could almost spend an entire lifetime exploring all of the canyons, beaches, and hidden grottos out on the water, and Manila happens to be just about the perfect place to do just that. Lucerne Marina is just outside town, and gives the resident or vacationer top tier access to this massive expanse of water. House-boating, fishing and fishing tours, skiing, wakeboarding, kayaking, and even snorkeling and scuba diving are all just a skip away. More pertinent to the restaurant business, the camping, breathtaking natural beauty, and world-class fishing in the area make it a major attraction for travelers and adventure seekers. Especially during the summer months, the region is flooded with visitors from the neighboring cities and states. The amount and magnitude of this tourism has erupted even higher in the last few years, and Manila itself has expanded massively, attracting vacation homes, Air B and B’s, and other new facilities to accommodate the influx of travelers. Flaming Gorge Brewing Company is placed perfectly to take advantage of the tremendous growth currently being experienced by this thriving community. General OperationsAs far as business ventures go, the Flaming Gorge Brewing Company presents the buyer with something truly unique. Because the restaurant is still under construction, it has actually never been opened or operated. However, the current owners have established an LLC (Flaming Gorge Brewing Company), with liquor permits, and this LLC is being included in the sale of the property. This means that FGBC gives the buyer an incredibly rare opportunity to walk into an organization that is nearly turn key, including most if not all of the necessary trade fixtures, liquor permits, and other utilities needed to run a brewing company, but without being bogged down by an already established brand, leaky operations, and the other (often very stressful) quirks of buying a business that is already operating. The buyer has the ability to shape and create exactly the type of restaurant experience they believe in, including branding, marketing, and atmosphere. With a situation like that, the world really is your oyster. Region & ClimateIn addition to the lake and its associated activities, there is also extensive camping and hiking in the local area. Hunting is also not uncommon, and is definitely a possibility. The mountains surrounding Manila receive more rain than the lower elevations in the area, and in the winter, the region is often blanketed by plenty of snowfall. If you are looking to own and operate a business in an incredibly beautiful mountain environment, filled with travelers, adventurers, and trail blazers, Flaming Gorge Brewing Company is the place for you.
