For Sale: Turnkey kombucha brewery in beautiful British Columbia

Back in February 2022 we profiled Fernie Alpine Springs Kombucha, located high in the Rockies in British Columbia, Canada.

At the time owner Simon Lefrancois had established a successful kombucha brewery in this small, four-season vacation town of 7,000. Now, he and his wife are relocating to Chile and he has put his business up for sale. The state-of-the-art brewery was launched at the start of the pandemic. It survived a challenging beginning and is now growing rapidly.

There’s now an excellent opportunity to own and operate this business. Simon has invested $650,000 CAD in his operation, and will sell for $349,000 CAD ($257,000 USD). This meets the business investment requirements for anyone looking to emigrate to Canada.

Located in a commercial building with easy downtown and highway access, the business has been built on a solid foundation of unique product and sustainable business model.
