Located in the heart of Waimea, in Parker Ranch Center, this Dairy Queen/ Orange Julius store is in the right location that pull in large numbers of local customers from the best surrounding schools and hospital on the Big Island as well as tourists from site-seeing buses stopping everyday. Anchored by one of two leading supermarkets in the region, Foodland, the highly trafficked complex offers several times larger open parking than its competitor Waimea Center and the KTA, right across from the complex.
The business is active twelve months yearly due to the moderate weather of Hawaii. This is an excellent Cash Flow opportunity to own two profitable franchises for the price of one. The current lease is a five plus five year renewable lease with non compete that excludes new operators of hard ice cream, frozen yogurts and smoothie. Franchise approval is required; training and assistance is available for a new operator. With an established world famous brand-name such as the Dairy Queen, the corporate headquarters will assist the new owner with all aspects of business. Professional 2-3 week training is required, giving the new owner the knowledge and know-how of how to operate successful DQ/OJ that the franchisor has accumulated over 75 years of DQ history. This is a perfect turn-key investment opportunity for a motivated buyer.
