Dessert bar with assorted chocolate sweetsRockport, Texas is a bustling city of activity. You have firework events when the weather is nice, and a yearly Nature Challenge for those who would like to stay active outdoors. Wherever you are from Texas, Rockport is one place you have to visit. 

If you are a resident of the area, you can take advantage of the prime location to start your own business. Here are three ideas: 

Diner by the Sea 

Rockport is a great location for businesses by the sea. You can start your own cozy little shack offering fresh catch. Give a fresh twist to a classic seafood dish to get a loyal stream of followers. If you want a restaurant with more personality, you can position it close to a dock or any of the piers in the area. You can even have your own dock built specifically for your business. 

Fishing Supplies and Equipment 

Any sea-related business will do well in Rockport. If you're not up for the challenge of manning a restaurant, try your luck as the owner of a tackle shop or offer fishing equipment for those who have their own boats. You can also offer boat repair services. Anything you know you can do well can be offered as a service. Just as well, any product that will be handy for boat owners and hobbyists is a potential source of profit. 

Desserts Shop 

Who will say no to a great refreshment or dessert after they've walked around the beach or basked under the Rockport sun? Even yacht owners will want to treat themselves to a scoop or two of frozen treats once the day is done. You can attract customers of all ages if you start a dessert shop, making your success rate even higher.
