Looks like Ford’s backed out, now after doing some work on the place the Back Porch has backed out. Driving by yesterday noticed Villages for sale signs in the windows. Too bad we were looking forward to someone moving in. Guess the Villages rent and conditions are too much.

They don’t seem very bothersome by the rent they pay at Blue Fin maybe there are other reasons for not going in at that spot , there are also a lot of successful long and short term business here that are thriving , i unlike many here are not privy to the high rents and choking regulations that all these businesses deal with here but I guess some manage to survive even under the crushing thumb of evil Morse family

The food service industry is currently in peril. Skyrocketing food prices and a serious shortage of workers willing to work at wages that allow owners to make a profit. Couple that with their customers budgets being squeezed by troublesome inflation and a pandemic induced reduction in volume, and many businesses are hanging on by the skin of their teeth. Given that backdrop, it would not be advisable to open up a new restaurant during these times.

Evil Morse family! Really. The Villages is without exception the most successful retirement community anywhere. Many many businesses have been and continue to be successful. If you’re not “privy” to the rents and regulations how is it you can legitimately call them “choking”. I have seen many businesses come and go over my 15+ years here and most that have failed were due to poor management or just a bad business plan. Some have been lost to Covid as have many others nationwide, but in my humble opinion the captive audience The Villages provides offers many unique business opportunities that command a higher rent structure than in surrounding communities. I love their “evil crushing thumb” community.

Maybe that’s why there lots of empty lots and building’s in villages.

First off, The villages has expanded continuously for about 30 years so of course there's got to be some empty stores until somebody comes in. But I do know personally of retailers I do know what they pay in base rent and as a percentages. Which of course is crazy for Florida but not compared to New York on any main thoroughfare in the city. However what is crazy is someone being a nut and trying to open up a restaurant which has about a 90% failure rate in the US. And what most don't understand about the villages is that for four to six months out of the year you have 50% less potential customers and that is where many places fail in their business plan and not being able to cover what's called the "nut" . Same goes for Leesburg downtown restaurants that have failed continuously for 20 plus years. And yet some do survive and provide decent service and good food, but I have never seen the trifecta of failure of inflation, lack of workers, and people not wanting to come to your place due to covid and lack of insights outside seating space. And yet the lemmings continue to go sit next to each other with the possibilities of infection and lack of masks. Yes we do go out but I've always tried to sit against the wall and away from people but as I've said elsewhere my cooking is much better than most restaurants for many things that I can do. Stay safe and be well to all

Like a dog going around in circles, he's still trying to find that spot to lay down in.

Does anybody know what rents go for in the squares? And I'm sure it varies by location but what about the percentage on top of the rent? Are we talking like 1% or 10% of the gross?

As the the developer....personally, if I went to all of the trouble to build out a place like this I sure as heck wouldn't be giving away the prime retail space. It's just like housing....if you don't feel like you are getting a good deal then you are free to give your money to somebody else for a home somewhere else. It is somewhat expensive to live here.....and worth it!

With the inflation houses up here in SS are selling quick.
Three just recently in my hood. All sold in one day..... Why?
A lot of the original SS settlers are older and want to move back to family for several reasons. Inflation was not on their radar.
