The idea of starting a business offers multiple potential advantages as well as disadvantages. Many entrepreneurs think that being your own boss is worth its weight in gold, but carrying the weight of a business is daunting. The process of starting a business reveals the curveballs. Where should you locate your business and why? What kind of property can you afford? Do you want to own or lease? That is just the tip of the iceberg.
We have a few different spots around Marietta that are blank slates, just waiting for someone like YOU to decide that your business should grow or start there. This week we thought we would tell you about a few of these spots and see if we can rev your entrepreneurial engines.
The Perfect Spot for a Restaurant
One of the most important contributors to success for a restaurant is visibility. We can offer that via the property we have for lease on Putnam. Located in a perfect spot for high foot traffic and car traffic, your restaurant will be steps away from People’s Bank Theater and just a few more steps away from The Adelphia Music Hall. You will be able to participate in the increasingly popular (and fun) Marietta Main Street First Friday extravaganzas as well.
Your imagination can truly run wild in this spot. It is a blank slate, and we are also able to build to suit, so if there are things you would like to change, don’t be shy about letting us know. We already have several appliances set in the restaurant, so that will be one less worry to carry into your venture.
Whether you manage a branch of a bank or whether you run an insurance company, whether you run a boutique shop or a marketing firm, the first floor of The Dime Bank Building can be a dream spot for you to start or grow. The first floor of The Dime Bank happens to be already uniquely suited for a banking business as the teller counters and vaults are still present. However, with our capability to build to suit, the expansive space can evolve into whatever you need it to become.
The Dime Bank Building itself is certainly hard to miss. It is the tallest building downtown and it’s red brick exterior is eye-catching in any aerial shot of the city. The inside offers modern functionality with turn-of-the-century décor. The space can be divided into smaller office spaces or it can be utilized virtually as it is now. Contact us for a tour and let your dreams take you where you need to go.
Running a bed & breakfast is particularly rewarding in a historic town like Marietta, Ohio, where the B&B itself and all of its surroundings are drenched in history. The Bosworth-Biszantz House has stood in Marietta since 1868 and it is a nationally registered historic home. That means, in part, that we can help you apply for historic tax credits. The proximity of the property to natural beauty (the confluence of the Ohio and Muskingum Rivers) and the increasingly upbeat downtown area will not hurt business either.
Although there is a lot of history tied into this property, and although there is still a lot of original detail in the house (pocket doors, lead windows, and fretwork, to name a few), this house is still a blank slate in many ways. We can help you create the perfect setting to start your B&B, and the location literally in the core of Marietta will help you grow the business in no time.
These are just some of the properties we currently have available. There are other locations we can show you as well depending on what you are hoping to find. We even have property that is ready for development if you are looking into that side of growing your business.
