Business Description

OWN A BRAND! Exceptional Brand Equity. Not a Franchise.

Beyond the Shaker is a gourmet sea salt company that specializes in making unique and proprietary sea salt blends. We were recently picked up by Whole Foods Market - North Atlantic Region (MA, NH, RI and part of Connecticut). We recently secured a relationship with a distributor who makes all deliveries to Whole Foods and many gourmet shops in the New England area.

This is an opportunity to take control of a turn-key operation. You can keep the business on cruise control or you can create a sales strategy and grow this to a large operation. This business is fully owned by the current operator (no debt and no investors... it's as clean as it can be... 100% equity ownership.)

The current owner has ZERO employees and works 25 hours / week. Exponential revenue growth with a full-time owner - especially one who calls on wholesale accounts and is willing to spend a little time with in-store food demos (or willing to hire somebody to perform in-store food demos.)

Brand NEW and fully optimized website that is linked to Twitter and a real-time blog. Website was recreated in June 2016 to take advantage of social media and SEO.

There's nothing to re-invent or re-create... this is 100% turn-key with customers and distribution in place. Included in the asking price: inventory, furniture and fixtures (e.g. 3-bay sink, pallet jack etc), an email opt-in list of 5000 people to be used for email marketing, all software (new back-end system, shipping software, and website).

Detailed Information

Inventory:
Included in asking price
Employees:
1
Furniture, Fixtures, & Equipment (FF&E):
Included in asking price
Facilities:
I currently lease a space that is 1400 sq. feet. I am not at capacity (I use roughly 1000 sq ft). My lease is up at the end of 2016. Any interested buyer can move the facility upon the sale of the business as the current owner will break the lease agreement and pay any penalties. Assets include furniture (desks, tables, chairs, 2 printers, pallet jack, 3-bay sink, mini fridge, microwave, file cabinets, shelving, heat gun, heat sealer and dehumidifier).
Competition:
There are very few competitors who create sea salt blends. We have a VERY loyal fan base, a diversified wholesale customer base and there aren't any competitors that have our beautiful packaging (we import the jars from Italy and they make an amazing gift).
Growth & Expansion:
Owner isn't even trying to grow the business. Just maintaining the business. All somebody needs to do is start selling. Haven't tried to open a new account in a year. I rarely do email marketing. Just letting it cruise and maintain. HUGE opportunity with gift shops, wine shops, olive oil companies and grocery stores.
Financing:
Qualified Buyers: I will finance $24,000 over 2 years at 5%
Support & Training:
Owner will help new buyer get up and running. This was my "child" and I want to see it continue to be successful. (And it's very straight forward... doesn't require too much training. It would primarily be training on the backend of the website, the production process and fullfillment).
Reason for Selling:
My wife and I would like to adopt a baby which will cost $45,000- 50,000.
