Business Description

An Established 38 Year Sonoma County Fixture

Our 3-Generation culinary stores have been a staple in Sonoma County for 38 years.
The current owners wish to slow down and are looking for the right partner to purchase the Petaluma store located on historic Kentucky Street in old town Petaluma (established over 9 years in the current location). Located in the heart of the wine country we are a favorite for many “North-Bay Foodies” and service many of the local chefs & restaurants.

Currently we import our own branded OEM knife line from Solingen, Germany. These knives are the highest quality Hand forged knives from Germany and sell well next to our huge selection of top quality “Name-Brand” knives. We also have many other “branded” items in the stores to compliment the knives and are always looking to increase our selection of exclusive items.

As part of the sale, we would allow the new owners to continue using our brand name and we hope that they continue to sell the branded knives in the store. The perfect scenario would be one where the two stores work together in some form of partnership to serve the community. The buyer would benefit from sharing advertising costs, increased buying power, and having the current owners a few towns away for support, if needed.

The owners anticipate keeping the Santa Rosa store and retaining ownership of the Brand (trade) name, Intellectual Property, and the Internet business.

The Petaluma store is a very profitable “Turn-Key” operation. Over the last few years, the current owner has experienced an owner's benefit of over $120K/ year.

The Petaluma store is a “Turn-Key” operation and has many showcases and sales fixtures. There is a 60 foot knife magnet wall and thousands of linear feet of slat wall. We have a MAC based POS system in place that we have been using for many years.
Our stores are differentiated as a "Higher End" store and we avoid stocking items that overlap with Big Box and Department stores. This allows us to have an unusual mix of items and maintain a higher margin on the goods we sell.
Growth & Expansion:
There are many opportunities for growing the business. Ideas could include classes, increasing the knife sharpening business, etc...
Support & Training:
The current owners are available to train the new owners.
Reason for Selling:
The current owners want to work less and look to retire in the next 5-10 years
