Surf’s up and so is the bustle of economic opportunity.
The work-hard-play-hard values of yesteryear have been given new life here in Sauble Beach. Tourism drives continuous retail business development and keeps the watersport culture along the 11 kms of freshwater beach alive. Your surfboard can stay within arm’s reach as you get your startup off the ground or expand in this retro commercial hub. And that’s just the beginning – Sauble’s proximity to a prosperous renewable energy sector creates an engineering and light manufacturing hub that supports spin-offs and other shared outcomes of economic clustering.
Sauble Beach is recreational by name and nature, with a good cluster of retail, dining and entertainment businesses serving its seasonal visitors and keeping the local residents happy too. The local economy is buoyed by Sauble's proximity to the energy cluster of Bruce Power, solid household incomes and access to agri-businesses to the south. This blend gives entrepreneurs a strong base from which to explore new ideas.
South Bruce Peninsula is home to a year-round population of well over 8,000 people, offering this bumping beach town a consistent consumer and employment base even after the summer surge. With the majority of the Town’s residents of retirement age and a high average household income, you can expect both browsers and buyers.
Sauble Beach recently adopted and cultivated a retro, art deco-inspired look to thematically connect the storefronts of the main strip. But the people of Sauble Beach have taken the theme to heart, running classic car cruise nights, spending long summer days on the beach, surfing and sunning, and chasing it all down with a shake from the diner-inspired restaurants. Sauble Sandfest and the Sauble Beach Guitar Festival keep it old school and the actual schools and clubs do too, facilitating groups that keep their lifestyle values in fine form. It’s a strong sense of discovery that attracts new residents and entrepreneurs to Sauble Beach, a small but mightily distinct community in The Town of South Bruce Peninsula.
