    Description

    The well-known and historical Endako Pub and Hotel was originally constructed in the early 1920s and has been a key focal point of the community and surrounding area ever since. This is a prominent heritage building which still holds its utility and was in operation as recent as 2017. In 2006 the building underwent extensive renovations, beginning with a brand-new foundation.

    The property is comprised of two separately titled and contiguous components being offered together:

    • Front Parcel: 3,297± square feet on 0.43 acres of C1 zoned land
    • Back Parcel: 1.04 acres of R5 zoned land

    The Pub and Hotel can be purchased fully furnished, which includes a commercial kitchen and all necessary equipment. In addition, the hotel component of the building has almost all of the items needed for it to be a turnkey operation. There would be only a minimal amount of work required to have the operation back up and running.

    Located between Fraser Lake and Burns Lake, and roughly a 3-hour drive from Prince George, the Endako Roadhouse Pub & Grill is a welcomed site on a busy highway. It is a place for weary travellers and local patrons to enjoy a warm and inviting pub atmosphere, and to rest their head in one of the 7 hotel rooms. In addition, there is a bonus 2-bedroom suite that could be rented out or utilized by the new owners as an onsite residence. Owning a true piece of history is a rare opportunity, and this property is no exception.

    With an active logging industry, and the Dawson Creek to Kitimat LNG project underway throughout region, the area will see sustained employment for the foreseeable future. With steady employment comes a need for accommodation and entertainment, and this well-located property provides both.

    Financials for 2017 and 2016 operations are available with Confidentiality Agreement.

    Location

    This property is conveniently located less than 15 minutes from Fraser Lake and roughly 30 minutes east of Burns Lake. The property is prominently located directly off of Highway 16. It can easily be accessed via Highway 16 or Manitoba Street.

    Area Data

    Endako is located 57 km from east of Burns Lake and roughly 16 km west of Fraser Lake along Highway 16. Endako has a rich history that dates to when the Grand Trunk Pacific Railway created a switching off point for those trains headed towards Smithers and onto the port city Prince Rupert.

    Near to Endako is Fort Fraser, which is an unincorporated community of about 500 people, situated near the base of Fraser Mountain, close to the village municipality of Fraser Lake and the Nechako River. Originally established in 1806 as a North West Company fur trading post by the explorer Simon Fraser, it is one of present-day British Columbia's oldest permanent European-founded settlements. The area around the community is also recorded as the site of the first land in British Columbia cultivated by non-First Nations people.

    Fraser Lake is a village in northern British Columbia. It is located on the southwest side of Fraser Lake between Burns Lake and Vanderhoof alongside the Yellowhead Highway. The attractive lakeside community of Fraser Lake lies alongside the Yellowhead Highway, west of the city of Prince George. The pioneer roots of the area's history date back to the fur trade, with the establishment in 1806 of a fur-trading post by Simon Fraser, at Fort Fraser near the east end of Fraser Lake.

    Prince George, with a population of 74,003, is the largest city in northern British Columbia and is the "Northern Capital" of BC. It is the most major municipality near the property. Situated at the confluence of the Fraser and Nechako Rivers, and the crossroads of Highway 16 and Highway 97, the city is the service and supply hub for one of the fastest-growing regions in Canada and plays an important role in the province's economy and culture.

    Prince George is the dominant economic center of the region. Public sector and education based jobs dominate the municipality’s economy. Presently the Northern Health Authority, stationed in Prince George, possess a $450 million budget and have invested $100 million into local infrastructure. UNBC, the College of New Caledonia and School District #57 adds a further $750 million into the local economy.

    The city’s economy was once dominated by the lumber sector; however, the Fraser-Fort George Regional District has experienced extensive closures of the region’s lumber mills. This has been attributed to the movement towards “super mills,” a loss of supply caused by the prevalence of the Mountain Pine Beetle and US tariffs on lumber exports. It is predicted that mining exploration and development will soon supersede the lumber industry, as the dominant industry in Prince George and the surrounding areas. Additionally, Initiatives Prince George estimates that the Nechako Basin contains 5,000,000 barrels of oil, which could help diversify the region’s economy further through the commencement of petroleum harvesting operations.

    Presently, the city of Prince George has a number of private enterprises and facilities operating in and contributing to its local economy. These facilities include:

    • Two chemical plants
    • An oil refinery
    • Brewery
    • Dairy
    • Machine shops
    • Aluminum boat construction
    • Value added forestry
    • Specialty equipment manufacturing

    Prince George has a large regional airport offering daily flights to major destinations.
