Veteran business owner seeks new business to buy in Houston

I recently sold my Pharmacy Staffing company after 10 years of successful operation. I am a pharmacist but I am not necessarily seeking a health care business. I am looking for an existing business in the North Houston area with a good track record and at least 4 years of financials. I do not want to grow a business or franchise from scratch but can take an existing company and enhance it. I am originally from Great Britain and would consider businesses abroad as well. I can invest up to $400k but prefer it not to go primarily to doing new build-out. Please don't respond with growth franchises. I would prefer a more mature business. Many thanks in advance for any help.

I am an importer of wines from all over the world but mostly Italy, France, and Spain. We also have very nice wines from Chili and Argentina. It is a very fun business and I would like to establish these wines in many other states. As the importer, I have the exclusive right to sell these wines. I have spent much time and effort securing these wines. My strategy is to find excellent wines at the low price points. I have been able to do that because I sought out wineries with no representation in the US. These wineries are very anxious to sell in the states and I am very anxious to help them do that.

I have put together several programs where an individual can get into the wine distribution business without a large outlay of cash or go all out and purchase a large amount of inventory. I recommend starting with a small amount and build a customer base. Then other "unique imported wines" can be added to your offerings. An energetic individual can build a customer base with out having to hire a sales staff. Building relationships is what is most important. Please review my add in Look for "Unique Imported Wine Distribution"

I have a biz ad running that states $12,000.00 can get you started with $5,000.00 of working capital. This would cover the cost of your original order of wine which would be approximately $9,000.00 of wine and the remaining $3,000/ to cover all the other efforts necessary to get you started. This would include marketing and sales strategies, advice with state compliance, delivery strategies, storage advice and accounting requirements, including a quickbooks setup to accommodate your sales distribution business.

If you have interest in getting into a very fun business, we can talk next week. Please respond with your interest. Email is Ron@UniqueImportedwines.Com

What I am trying to get off the ground strives by having connections with solo or group practitioners. If you have those connects this could be a cash cow.
