Jimmy Buffett’s always been quite the entrepreneur, and now he’s getting into the business of senior housing. His Margaritaville lifestyle brand, which includes Buffett-inspired hotels, casinos, and restaurants, is about to open a chain of retirement communities.
The first one will be located in Daytona Beach, Fla., and more locations are expected to be announced soon.
Latitude Margaritaville is being marketed as senior living “for those looking to live the Margaritaville lifestyle as they grow older, but not up.’’ It will essentially be a walkable neighborhood for older adults with a “no worries, tropical vibe’’ and will feature exercise facilities, an indoor lap pool, a band shell for live performances, and indoor and outdoor dining areas where Parrotheads can kick back and enjoy Margaritaville-branded food and drinks. According to the Latitude Margaritaville website, the sales center at Daytona Beach is scheduled to open this fall, and model homes should be ready early next year.
