$140,000 in Annual Sales with High YoY Growth

I built JPNGarage in 2013 to fill the gap in the Japanese classic automotive parts industry. Since launch, we have been a huge success in this niche.
For the past few years, Japanese classic cars have been skyrocketing in price, collectability, and popularity so sales have been great. You mention the name JPNGarage in the Japanese classic automotive field and people know who we are, we sell some of the best parts in the market at the best prices. We also carry our own line of fender flares which are of great quality and priced competitively.
We have been featured in various online automotive magazines LoweredLifestyle.com & StateOfStance.com and recently a hard copy book named The Drive from publishing house Gestalten for our amazing products and builds.
Reason for selling
I am a retired U.S Army military veteran with a beautiful family including 2 young daughters and a beautiful wife. I started this as a small hobby with limited products but it grew into a business very quickly, the number of products is now 1000+. It’s taken off and gotten way bigger than when I first started it. I’m very proud of what I have accomplished and although it is bittersweet, at this moment I just cannot commit the time to focus on the business without compromising my family time and neglecting my other business.
Since we opened in 2013 our sales have doubled each year, live revenue verification for serious buyers.
We are at a tier 3 level with our supplier's which is the lowest cost on product and highest on profit margins. In about 90% of our sales, our profit is from 28% - 30% which is great for the industry.
Website product management
We built the website to be very easy to maintain and track sales, each product has a unique SKU# and description per product is very detailed so the customer can easily understand what they're purchasing.
How much time does it take to run the website?
10-15 hours a week to check all email's from customers and place orders with suppliers. All tracking info is updated directly on the website to maintain customers up to date on placed order.
We worked with Boostability for several months to work on our SEO keyword and organic product search, after a few months, various keywords of our products are now featured on the 1st page of google searches and others on the 2nd. The new owner will be given all Boostability acct info and account manager information.
Our website provides monthly P&L reports, sales and customer logins. All traffic is monitored by Google analytics.
Logos and website
All of our logos, banners and pictures are owned and designed by us including the website and slogan. These will be transferred to new owner.
Social media is a big part of our sales and marketing, we have over 11,000 followers on Instagram (JPNGarage) and 5,000 on Facebook. All of these accounts will be transferred to new owner.
DROP SHIPPING ADVANTAGE
100% of our products sold are drop shipped directly from our vendor's warehouse to the customer with tracking info and other supporting documents. You don't need to buy or store any products.
Transferring of business after sale

San Francisco, CA

The sale includes the business domain, 27 related domains, all social media accounts, a client list with 2000+ customers, all supplier/vendor relationships, trained staff, and a 2009 Ford E350 Grooming Van.
With an established, recognized brand, unique established strategic partnerships, outstanding reviews, and a proven business model, the new owner will be in a great position to grow this business to new heights.
The business derives 100% of its revenue through the sale of its grooming and walking services. The business’ wide array of grooming methods provide a significant competitive advantage in the pet care market. Over the trailing twelve month, the company’s gross revenue was approximately $189,000.00 USD and the business’ net profit was approximately $132,000.00 USD.
The owner spends roughly 50 hours per week managing the business. This time is primarily spent overseeing the operations, speaking to customers, and grooming. Additionally, the business is serviced by 1 office manager, 1 groomer, and 1 pet caretaker. All employees are willing to continue working for the business and are accounted for in the P&L.
There are several growth strategies that present very exciting opportunities for the new owner. The new owner could increase the number of groomers and dog walkers on staff. Each van, fully staffed, can gross $250,000 per year, and each additional full time dog walker or kitty care taker can gross $100,000 per person.
Similarly, the new owner could expand the service area outside of the Bay Area.
Advertising presents another potentially lucrative growth opportunity. The business has grown primarily through word of mouth. Consequently, a new owner could advertise on related websites/blogs and experiment with Adwords to drive additional traffic. Lastly, social media advertising is yet another opportunity to drive more traffic and therefore customers to the business.

The company offers affordable services for seniors and their families who require assistance with meal preparation, medication reminders, bathing or personal cares, grocery shopping, light housekeeping, errands, Alzheimer's care, or companionship in order to remain happily & safely in their homes. The business office is fully staffed with a Staffing Coordinator, Client Care Manager and Recruitment/Training Coordinator.
Throughout its 9-year operation, the Company has become the industry leader in the local senior care community. Its excellent reputation in serving clients and with its employees, has earned this company solid relationships with professionals in the health care and senior communities. Majority of revenues (@ 97%) come from Private Pay, @ 3% from Veterans Admin. More than 65% of clients pay electronically via credit card or ACH making cash flow easier to manage.
The franchise territory has approximately 110,000 seniors (over 65), which is the equivalent of multiple offices, based on an average-sized home care franchise which typically only has 30,000 – 40,000 seniors. This office is being sold as ONE large office, but the new owner may split it up into 2 offices if they wish since this is a two franchise territory area. This business provides services to one of the most demographically attractive senior care markets in the Country.
The service market includes a number of large hospitals, senior centers, assisted living communities, nursing homes, memory care and skilled nursing facilities. The Business has established National referral sources, a database of over 500 local referral sources, and 65+ Caregivers, hired, trained and registered through the state on payroll.

The Company competes with other national and local businesses and sole proprietors providing home care services. Disabled adults and seniors who are 65 years and older comprise the primary market for the Company, as well as a smaller portion of younger adults with some form of disability or illness requiring assistance with daily living.
The home-care industry has exploded with the aging population. Today, with 10,000 Americans turning 65 every day, the demand for senior care is ever increasing. The US senior population currently sits at approximately 50 million and by 2030, it is expected to swell to 81 million (Source: US Census Bureau). An estimated 70 percent of people over 65 will require home-care services at some point in their lives.
The seller is selling for personal reasons but will assist during a transitional period. The Caregivers and staff, all of which are W2 employees, are available to work with a new owner.
eCommerce Business Earning $8,500/month with Light Workload
lLarge Organic Traffic with 11,000+ Email Subscribers
San Francisco, CA
Beezer.com.au was established and trademarked in 2012. Beezer set out to challenge the growing number of large online retailers who seemingly competed purely on price with very little attention to quality. Using the dropship model we worked closely with many of Australias largest distributors of quality brands from around the globe, introducing them to the dropship concept and working closely with them to provide a new sales channel in Australia. Over the years we have developed strong relationships with reliable quality distributors who's ranges are always “on trend” and updating to provide the latest in the Gifts, Homewares & Electronics sectors.
The sale of Beezer.com.au will include the Shopify based website, transfer of trademark, all social media assets, customers database with full trading history, 12,000+ subscriber list, domain name & support.
At present Beezer.com.au is trading on organic traffic only along with referral traffic from major brand websites where Beezer is listed as an authorised retailer in Australia. The current trading is a baseline trading figure that can be easily maintained with little or no work. The opportunity, however, is to take the next step and drive social media channels and SEM to generate more sales.
Only once has Beezer employed a 3rd party SEM company, this lasted for approx 3 months. All other SEO and SEM work was done internally. Beezer has never used or been penalised for any bad SEO tactics. Our Analytics and Facebook pixels have been collecting customer data and are ready to provide great customer/visitor insights for marketing & remarking campaigns.
100% of revenue is generated from sales of goods online.
All suppliers are open to continuing the dropship model or holding stock arrangements, the latter providing better margins in some cases.
Beezer.com.au is a unique opportunity for a first timer to enter the market in a strong position or for an established retailer in the same category to launch online and start day one with great sales and strong organic ranking.
It is time for the present owner to move onto other challenges, though Beezer can now be run on minimum time input (roughly 10 hours a week) we feel that it presents a great opportunity for someone energised with online marketing skills to take this solidly established brand to the next level and beyond.

2. Are you willing to sign a 3-year non-compete contract in the industry that the website operates in?

Yes, within reason. There is a lot to running a store like Beezer and I’d be happy to point the new owner in the right direction and show them how I have been managing the business. After that, it would have to be on a paid basis unless the purchase price included this amount.
