Beach Bars and Starting Small

Tagged: ,

Considering starting your own beach bar? When perusing opportunities, don’t overlook the small ones. If there is anything I’ve had rqeinforced this last week from talking to owners of beach bars, it’s that a lot of them started small and in many of those cases, smaller than you think. I’ve heard stories of beach bar owners who started with a few tables and chairs in the sand, others who started with an old bus and some who simply plopped down a cooler on the beach and started selling beer. They built it, people came and then they kept coming.


If you read this blog, you’ve probably had, or still have, the dream of owning your own beach bar some day. Sure, it would be nice to have access to unlimited funds and be able to purchase an existing beach bar that’s already making money and not have to worry about whether or not it’s going to succeed. For the rest of us, though, the lack of funds shouldn’t be a stumbling block to making our beach bar dreams come true. It may take a little more hard work, sweat and tears but if it succeeds, wouldn’t you just love the thought of one day sitting at your beach bar and thinking to yourself, “Yeah, I made that”? Sounds like the perfect happy ending to me.
