Old Town Busniess Opportunity - Key West

Except for the unfortunate few who run afoul of the law while spending a few days in our little island paradise, I'll bet most visitors wonder what life would or could be like if they quit their jobs and moved to Key West.

I fell in love with Key West the very first time I came here. That was along time ago before all the gentrification happened.  Most of the houses in Old Town looked like they were ready to fall down. Conch cruisers (rusted old cars) looked to me to be the primary means of transportation. Key West seemed like a third world country back then. But in spite of all the negatives about Key West (which I now admit were positives), I pondered what I could do to earn enough money to live in this magical island. Before moving to Key West I used to be a lawyer and then a banker.  I did not want to do either in Key West - to me a place not of that other world out there - up in America. I eventually moved here, bought a business, and later go a real estate license. I work way too much, but I enjoy what I do.

Just Listed by Preferred Properties Key West is THIRSTY'S at 531 Greene Street.  Thirsty's is a convenience store in a great tourist location about 150 feet east of Sloppy Joes and one block west of the Historic Seaport. The Pier House and the Hyatt Hotel are one block  north. Thousands of tourist pass by this location daily.
Thirsty's sells made-to-order sandwiches, ice cream, cold drinks, hot coffee, beer and wine, breakfast, cigarettes, sun tan lotion, and a myriad of products tourists need.  All inventory and sales are tracked on computer making it easy for an owner to monitor sales and production any time that he or she is not in the store. There is TV system which provides the owner with multiple views on iphone at any location in the world. The is a Business Opportunity. No real estate conveys.

Gary Thomas in a Nutshell

I first read about Key West in a magazine called "After Dark" sometime in the mid 1970's. But it wasn't until March 1984 that I made my first visit to the island that would become my home. I had two weeks for a vacation and reserved a room at Colours Guesthouse (now Marrero's Guest House) for one week. I thought that if I didn't like Key West, I could always go back to Miami or Ft. Lauderdale for the rest of my trip. But after a couple of days in Key West, that was no longer a consideration. But when I wanted to extend my stay for the extra week I found there was no room at the inn. The guesthouse owner did find me a room at LaTeDa, the infamous guesthouse/restaurant. That's a story I'll write another day. But those two weeks in Key West gave me the realization that I had found Paradise. Key West has been my home since 1993 and my only regret is that it took me so long to get here. I am a full time Realtor at Preferred Properties CRI. Let me help you find your new home or business in Paradise. Living in Paradise is not a slogan, it's a way of life.
