** UPDATE** Owner has received a job offer that requires a return to the United States. While this business can be run remotely for extended periods of time, the easiest solution would be to make a sale as soon as possible, so the owner can focus on the new job. As a result, the price has been discounted to encourage a quick sale. If owner still has to manage business from the US, that discount will come off and it will revert to the original asking price. Looking to have an agreement in place within a month, and willing to do whatever possible to make potential buyer comfortable with that timeframe.
Well known and well liked restaurant/grocery/pharmacy delivery business in Tamarindo, Costa Rica-- a beautiful beach town with large numbers of ex-pats and tourists. Tico To Go has been serving the area for over a decade.
We have long term ties with many of the best restaurants in Tamarindo and many customers that have been regulars for years. There is no direct competition in Tamarindo. We also do grocery and pharmacy delivery. Current owners have ideas for growth of the business that they would be willing to share with buyer.
In addition to the delivery business, Tico To Go regularly produces a well known and widely distributed menu guide. This is a first class guide that produces significant revenue through advertising. It is distributed throughout Tamarindo, at hotels and rental properties, etc.
The business currently has two long term employees that know the business inside and out. They know their jobs and do them exceptionally well. They are fully capable of running the business on their own, and have for extended times under prior ownership. This makes it a great opportunity for any kind of owner. For a hands-on owner that wants to be involved and grow the business-- great, they will be there to assist you. For someone who doesn't want to invest a lot of time-- great, they can run things for you on a daily basis.
Recent changes have made this an even more attractive investment. The company was recently reformatted and has a completely new, clean slate. This eliminates any potential of any liabilities from previous ownership. It is essentially a new, clean title. Current ownership has also upgraded the business in many ways. Much new equipment has been purchased and the business is on solid footing. This truly is a turn-key purchase. A buyer can take over and not have to worry about committing resources right out of the gate. This business does not require a store front or physical location, so there is no expense or worry about a lease (this keeps expenses very low).
Company has a very nice website, ticotogo.com, and much work has been done on a new website and app. This would be a good project for someone with knowledge of website building and app development.
Included in the sale are 3 motorcycles, delivery boxes, website (both the current and the new, under construction), phones, menu guides, logos, designs, etc., plus various other items and resources. Potentially willing to include 4x4 SUV in the sale.
Owner willing to help buyer with transition. Potentially willing to finance a part of the sale price.

Delivery business and website in a busy tourist/ex-pat town. No physical location needed for the business, which keeps overhead extremely low. But a new owner could add a physical location if desired.
No public office needed. But a new owner could have one if desired.
There is expansion potential-- both in terms of services provided and location. There have been people asking for Tico To Go to expand to other locations in the area.
No direct competition. Some restaurants may offer their own delivery, but no one else has as many high quality restaurants and a website, plus grocery and pharmacy delivery. And no one can touch our menu guide!
Managing majority owner has accepted a job offer that requires him to move back to the United States. Owner needs to move back by the end of next month (September), so the price has been discounted to make a sale happen quickly.

Owner willing to provide training and support to buyer.
