Business Description

A home-based company that releases an annual publication is now out in the market for sale. The company issues a very informative magazine that serves as a luxury city guide to local and foreign tourists in Vancouver. The company has been sharing lots of helpful articles that fall in four major categories – Food & Hospitality, Beauty & Health, Home & Design, and Fashion. The magazine has become the source of information of most visitors and even of locals when it comes to the frequented restaurants, cafés, holes-in-the-wall, shopping malls, and shops in town. Gem City Guide has already published write-up’s about a hundred prime spots in these areas -- Yaletown, Gastown, Downtown, Chinatown, the West End, South Granville, Kitsilano and Mount Pleasant, even in Olympic Village to Main Street and the Fraserhood. This guide attracts a lot of tourists through its detailed descriptions and attractive layouts. It also has its edge over the other visitors’ guides because of its translation in Chinese texts; this makes it very tourist-friendly.

What’s good about this travel guide is that it does not just come in printed copies, but its articles can also be read on its website, gemcityguide.com. The tourists can easily browse through the site on their phones or tablets for information. The new owner can venture into turning it into a mobile app which can be visitors’ more convenient reference when they come to Vancouver.

The current owners of this company have considered other projects as their priority that’s why they had to give up this business. It will be a big help to the new owner to maintain this business if he/ she has background in sales, web design, print layout, and/ or creative writing. He/ she doesn’t need to rent a space for this business since it can be managed from home at his/ her convenience. The seller will pass on the comprehensive database that contains the names and other information of the establishments and tourist spots in Vancouver.

To those who are interested in this business, you may contact any of the owners through their contact information.
