Business Landing

Business Opportunities

Business and Property Availability

Grey Highlands is home to approximately 1,000 businesses, many of which focus on meeting the needs of its thriving agricultural community.

Opportunities abound for prospective as well as established entrepreneurs looking to expand their operations into Grey Highlands. Numerous parcels of land and rental opportunities are found throughout the area, including three significant properties owned by the Municipality.

Local real estate agents and Municipal staff can assist with finding the perfect investment property.

 Beaver Valley Development Project

The Municipality of Grey Highlands’ Beaver Valley, the gateway to southern Georgian Bay, is located less than two hours north of Toronto, Canada’s largest city, and an international centre of business and finance.  Beaver Valley is close to large residential and business communities (including Owen Sound and Collingwood), resort areas, and Lake Huron’s majestic Georgian Bay.

On March 8, the Municipality of Grey Highlands and 2420124 Ontario Inc. (represented by Phil Calvano and Brian Ellis) entered into a Joint Venture Agreement that formalizes their commitment to collectively market and promote the opportunities available with the three properties that originally comprised the former Talisman Resort. The initiative will be seeking to attract the best potential and best use for these properties to support a thoughtful, sustainable and respectful undertaking that will provide social, environmental and economic benefit to the residents and businesses across Grey Highlands.

The former Talisman Resort lands are the anchor properties in the heart of the Beaver Valley. Any future undertaking on these properties will have the opportunity to propel Grey Highlands and the region as a world-class tourism destination that offers remarkable products and experiences that are authentic, driven by visitor demand, exceed expectations, and align with the community cultural brand. Moreover, the joint venture has the potential to stimulate an undertaking that would support job creation, attract increased investment in the community, provide new stimulus to the Municipal tax base, and encourage the building of new local amenities to support communities needs.


Vision

To maximize the development potential of former Talisman Resorts lands to serve as the anchor for the revitalization of the Beaver Valley and by extension downtown Markdale and the greater Grey Highlands region.

Business Opportunity - Company Servicing Well Water Pumps and Related Activities

Opportunity to purchase company servicing well water pumps and related activities. Currently offering installation, repair, and maintenance of pumps and related pressure and holding tanks, as well as installation and maintenance of water treatment equipment for a mixed base of full time and seasonal residential, agriculture, and commercial customers.  

This profitable business has been operating throughout Grey County for 25+ years. It has experienced rapid growth in customers (primarily residential since 2018), revenue and profits.  The growth of the customer base reflects the changing demographics in the area as well as the current owner’s excellent reputation and highest quality customer service.

This is a once-in-a-time opportunity for an investor or someone who is an aspiring entrepreneur who can get started with a profitable base of clients and grow it significantly over their lifetime. This is a recession proof (and essential services) business in a desirable geographical area that’s experiencing exponential growth as baby boomers retire.

The business currently operates with three people full time (a husband and wife team as well as one employee).
