Looking to Buy a Business for Sale in Adelaide? We've Got You Covered

South Australia's capital city of Adelaide is well known for its rich atmosphere, wine and food festivals, and outdoor adventures and is commonly referred to as the 'opal capital of Australia'. There are countless opportunities to buy a business for sale in Adelaide on the Bsale website ranging from cafes, retail, manufacturing businesses, and beauty salons to franchises. 

Small business makes up a large portion of the Australian economy and this year two South Australian businesses have been named in the annual Top 50 Small Business Leaders for 2022 by Inside Small Business Magazine. 

Freyja Tasci, founder of Apiwraps (Australia’s original beeswax wrap company) and Yovanka Loria of Yovanka Loria Extensions are flying the flag for South Australia. Freyja operates her national sustainable wholesale business from Modbury North, with a network of major retail partners including ALDI and Woolworths.

Meanwhile Adelaide hairstylist Yovanka Loria opened her home salon in 2017 after her two kids had entered school. Within 24 months, her business turned into a million-dollar global brand after she followed a hunch and developed a product line that is now not only coveted by women all over the world, but high-end salons are also scrambling to get their hands on." - Source: Glam Adelaide

In fact, there are also many businesses for sale in Barossa Valley.

If you are thinking of buying a cafe in Adelaide, now might be the perfect time to do it.

The City Of Adelaide is continually working on improving the infrastructure of Adelaide to accommodate it's growing population and tourists. The Central Market Arcade is currently undergoing a redevelopment worth $400 million, which the city of Adelaide claims will be a catalyst for enriching the city. This redevelopment includes new residences, offices, a premium hotel, retail and activated public spaces consisting of an elevated 3,000 square metre terrace.

Similarly, Gawler Place which is a busy street in Adelaide, in the middle of the biggest shopping precinct, has recently been upgraded, which includes new dining areas to attract busy shoppers for a food and coffee break.

An Economic Recovery Fund is currently being established by the Malinauskas Labor Government to assist business and industry growth jobs in South Australia. These grants will take place over the next four years, which can help support and grow your business.
