I have a modest budget.+2 Other Responses
My name is ben and i am a real estate wholesaler located in ca.
I recently had a seller of a property contact me about 10 acres of commercial / agricultural land located in puerto rico he needs to sell. There are 4 natural water springs on the property. The seller spent quite a bit of money and time, getting the proper water permits and rezoning 1 acre to build a commercial building as his intent was for the building was to house his water bottling operation. I understand, in puerto rico, having a source of clean water suitable for bottling can be very lucrative so it currently has my attention. I have an agreement in principal with the seller to buy the 10 acres and all the water and mineral rights.
My issue is, i am a real estate wholesaler, not a water bottling expert. Other than drinking it, i have no experience with bottled water. I have some interested groups who would be willing to fund my purchase of the 10 acres and the bottling operation but i can not in good conscience ask them to invest in me if i don't get the proper information and have a plan to make us profitable. From what information i have been able to gather, with the proper bottling machine, there is a maximum of 108 (16oz) bottles that can be produced per minute. That makes about 2.3 million bottles per month. I need someone with the proper expertise and knowledge of the bottled water industry to set expectations as to costs and profitability of the market in puerto rico, the caribbean, and the possibility of bring water products to the mainland.
I would be open to an investor funding the purchase transaction and the business opportunity but i am much more interested in find a person with real world experience in the bottled water industry.+5 Other Responses
