SF Bay Area Retail Bakery - Sales above $2.8MM; Nets above $395K
This retail bakery in the Bay Area is very popular with locals and tourists alike. It's voted Best Bakery year after year in its locale, and has consistent 4+ star reviews in Yelp.
You’ll have to fight for a place in line and then take a number to get what have been described to me (by a real live foodie), as “… John, I put myself through college preparing fine food. My benchmark for a bakery is their almond croissants. John, these were the very best almond croissants I’ve ever tasted. Seriously.” This banker who has given an SBA loan pre-approval for this business, went on to say “… if I wouldn’t have to uproot my family to do it, I’d buy this business myself; it’s perfectly set up with experienced bakers, friendly counter staff, and an excellent management team. I wouldn’t change a thing. I can’t believe the owner can do this much business from a space this size. Amazing!”
A qualified buyer will know baking, have prior business ownership, with at least 10 employees, and will have the $375K of liquid funds required by the Bank for the SBA loan. Agent will require these bonafides before releasing location and name of business.

SF Bay Area Beachtown Deli nets $550K on sales of more than $4million
SF Bay Area Beachtown Deli nets $550K on sales of more than $4,000,000
In business over 25 years, this local favorite in a high-tourist beach town knows how to keep people coming back. Retiring owner seeks experienced buyer and is very willing to share his system for success. The business started as a niche specialty food business, but has blossomed into a strong morning and lunch crowd with a growing evening presence (which still offers room for lots of growth). Company strengths include: 1) a super team of management, most of which have been long-term players, who together with hard working customer-centric employees, allow the owner/founder to spend on average less than 6 hours per day during his five-day week at the store, and spend two months vacationing; 2) annual sales of more than $4MM with an average ticket of less than $15; 3) what may be the highest per square foot sales of any retail food business in California; 4) a great lease that extends beyond 2030; 5) High Yelp reviews in a very competitive local market; 6) Eye-catching web presence highlighting every facet of the business; 7) SBA loan pre-approved for a qualified buyer. A qualified buyer should be able to satisfy owner’s and landlord’s stated requirement for prior successful retail food experience, and show at least $350K liquid for what will be the SBA’s downpayment requirement.
Agent will request bonafides and NDA prior to disclosing name and location. Right player may see this as a regional multi-store and/or franchising opportunity.

3 y/o Dropship eCommerce Netting $15k Annual Profit
Light Workload Niche eCommerce Website
San Francisco, CA
The Happy Couponer website was established in July 2013. At that time, most coupon clipping services were selling their coupons on Ebay, but Ebay started putting limits on how many coupons a seller could list in a month, severely limiting their income. Today, it's extremely difficult to list coupons on Ebay.
By May of 2014 our business had grown so much that we were physically unable to meet the demand for clipped coupons on our own, so we became The Happy Couponer Marketplace and opened the site up to vendors. This enabled us to provide more coupons, and a larger variety of coupons, without having to find the stock and do the physical labor ourselves.
Our vendors sell manufacturers' grocery coupons that you get in the coupon inserts in your Sunday newspaper. These are not the printable coupons you can find online. These are actual, physical paper coupons that must be clipped from the inserts.
Inside your Sunday paper you'll generally find a Smartsource insert, a Redplum insert, and once a month there's a P & G insert. We have more than 40 vendors who sell either the whole inserts or they sell individual clipped coupons.
The vendors who sell clipped coupons typically sell one coupon in lot sizes of 5, 10, 15, or 20, and the average price varies from $1.50 to $5.00, depending on the value of the coupon and the demand. The vendors who sell the whole inserts generally sell in lots of 20, 50 and 100 or more and pricing depends on the value of the coupons and the shipping weight.
There's a huge market for these coupons. If you've ever watched the TV show, “Extreme Couponing” then you know you can drastically reduce your grocery bill when you use coupons. If you've never seen the show, ask your wife, you mother, your grandmother or your neighbor. I guarantee – Someone you know uses coupons to save money on groceries.
Many of our customers are indeed 'extreme couponers' who stockpile everything from breakfast cereal to toilet paper to vitamins. But a large portion of our customer base is the average American housewife, just trying to stretch her already tight budget.
What makes us unique?
If you search 'coupon clipping services' you'll find several. These clipping services are generally operated by one person or family, with limited access to coupons. But, what sets The Happy Couponer Marketplace apart is the fact that we're a marketplace, with more than 40 vendors who are located across the country.
Coupons are extremely time-sensitive. Each manufacturer coupon has an expiration date. Sometimes it's a week, sometimes 3 month or more.
Our customers are savvy shoppers. They look to see what's on sale in their area stores and then look to match that item up with a coupon for even greater savings. Because sales generally last for only a week, and because coupons have expiration dates, it's sometimes imperative that the customer get that coupon within a matter of 2 or 3 days.
Because our vendors are located across the country and most carry the same coupons, our customers are able to find a vendor close to home to cut down on shipping time.
Many coupons are also only available regionally. For example, a great coupon for $2 off Tide laundry detergent may only appear in the Midwest marketing region newspapers but it can be used anywhere in the country. Because we have vendors located across the US our customers are able to purchase these regional coupons that they might not ever see.
Our customers shop The Happy Couponer Marketplace because they know they will always be able to find the coupons they're looking for, no matter how rare, in large quantities, from multiple sources.
We, the owners, haven't actually clipped or shipped coupons since October 2014. The vendors each have their own sources for coupons and they do their own clipping and shipping. We found we were able to attract more vendors if we stepped out of the marketplace and focused on marketing and promotion.
While THCM has been very good to us and requires very little of our time, we're selling the site because we've been given the opportunity to open our own bakery and we're gonna jump on it!
THCM has only one other major competitor who also operates a marketplace with several vendors – couponfleamarket.com Their selling structure differs from ours in that customer payments go directly to the individual vendor's Paypal account and the vendor is responsible for all Paypal fees and customer refunds. It's also the vendor's Paypal account that's at risk when Paypal claims are filed.
Their fee structure is also different. Vendors are invoiced for $20 per month, plus 10% of sales. This combined with the per-transaction Paypal fees makes it more expensive for vendors to sell at couponfleamarket.com
From the customer's viewpoint, our customers prefer The Happy Couponer Marketplace because our better organized, our site has large images, it's easier to read, and it's easier to search. Plus, we're just nicer :)
The sole source of income on the site is the selling fee we charge for each listing. There are HUGE opportunites for growth here!
It takes approximately 4 to 5 hours per week to run the site. We have no employees because none are necessary.
The vendors are responsible for filling all of their own orders. Each receives an automatic order confirmation email via Woocommerce and WCVendors plugins. They provide all their own shipping materials and pay for their own postage.
Things I do manually:
Expired coupons - Twice a week I go through the listings and put any that will expire within the next 5 days into Out Of Stock.
Out Of Stock allows the listings to remain visible on the vendor dashboard orders report. If you put these listings into Draft they disappear from the dash.
Five days is an average. I don't count Saturday and Sunday because they're not USPS business days. I also don't count holidays. So sometimes I might end up going out 7 - 10 days.
Removing these about-to-expire coupons cuts down on refund requests because customers never read the entire listing.
Do not adjust invetories on Whole Insert listings. Those vendors DO take care of their own.
We've tried leaving this up to the vendors but some of them never get it done.
If you're familiar with meta data there may be a way to code this so it happens automatically or so it flags the vendor.
Once or twice a month I remind vendors to delete unnecessary listings and then I empty the trash.
Can take up to an hour a week.
NOTE: There's a problem with the Woocommerce search plugin right now and you have to disable it to be able to sort products and vendors on the Admin side. Woocommerce is aware of this problem.
New Categories - I add new categories every Tuesday. If you look at couponpreviews.info you'll see which new coupon inserts will be coming out for the weekend.
Be sure to add one category for Clipped Coupons and one for Whole Inserts for each new insert coming out that week.
I also look at existing categories and delete any that have zero listings left.
Clean up Tags - The only tags we allow on the site are those that appear in the menu for Aisle by Aisle so once or twice a week I go through the Product Tags and delete all the other tags the vendors try to add. Takes 5 minutes or less.
Whole Insert Descriptions - You can probably eliminate this task with some special coding but I'm not that experienced. We've found that it reduces refund requests if we include the full product description in the order confirmation email that the customer receives. Unfortunately, the only way to do this is to copy and paste it into the Advanced Tab on the Add or Edit Product page and this only appears on the Admin screen - the vendors can't do it. It just takes a minute :)
Issue Refunds - Because all customer payments come in to our Paypal account, refunds must also come out of that account. We keep a weekly spreadsheet for vendors. As refunds are issued we add them to the spreadsheet and send the vendor a refund notice for their records. Refunds are then deducted from the vendor's Paypal transfer that week.
Pay Commissions - Commissions are automatically calculated with the WCVendorsPro plugin, and visible on the Admin side as well as on the vendor dashboard. The commission figure you see is Total Sales minus the selling fees and any refunds that were issued that week.
An explanation of our Selling Fees can be found on our Vendor Terms page.
Commissions are sent via Paypal using the Goods & Services transfer so the vendor is responsible for the Paypal fee. This also gives you some protection - you have the option of filing a Paypal claim if the vendor disappears without shipping.
After you pay commissions you need to go in and actually mark them 'Paid.' Takes about 5 minutes.
Takes, at most, 1 1/2 hours to 2 hours, once a week.
Customer Service - Because all customer payments come through our Paypal account, all refunds must also go through our Paypal account. Most customers will contact us directly when they have a question or problem but with the addition of the Buddypress plugin they're beginning to contact the vendors directly. Takes @ 10 – 20 minutes a day.
Banned Customer List – It doesn't happen often but any customer who files a Paypal claim without contacting us first to allow us to address the issue is automatically banned from the site. Vendors are immediately notified that if they continue to accept orders from this customer they do so at their own risk. The customer is also notified that future orders will be refunded and denied. For more explanation and to see our current Banned Customer List.
Mark Orders 'Complete' – Each vendor is responsible for marking their part of the order as 'shipped.' This generates and automatic email that goes out to the customer. At the end of the day – usually around 3 pm – I go through the open orders and mark any that came in before 1 pm EST 'Complete' which also sends an email to the customer and updates their Orders page on their profile. Takes about 5 minutes.
Intentional SEO is minimal. I've put a few articles about our competitors on the site for their keywords. Other than that, the keywords in each listing title pretty much take care of SEO.
In 2015 we promoted a few posts on FB to see what would happen and had acceptable results but we've never had the time to really work on it. Word of mouth works very well in this business :)
Advertising – We've never used any off-site advertisers because we always wanted to keep customers on the site and promote the vendors. So you really have some room for growth here.
Sell advertising space to other sites
Sell advertising space to vendors
Email Marketing – We dropped our Aweber account in January because we were having too many problems with the site. To be honest, now that everyting's running like clockwork we know we should put a subscription form back up but we're just not into it right now :)
Social Media – Facebook was getting to be one of our largest sources of traffic. Jessica, my daughter, was handling FB but with a promotion her hours changed at work and she's not able to spend time online these days. Most of our customers learn about us through word of mouth and Facebook so time spent on Social Media would certainly boost sales.
Rewards Points – At least one of our competitors has a rewards points system where each order placed earns the customer points that can be used on future purchases.
Subscriptions – At least one very small competitor has a subscription system in place. The customer pays a monthly fee to be guaranteed a certain number of inserts each week.
Vendor Fees – Originally we charged each vendor $20 per month plus 10% of their total sales. We also let the first 5 vendors in for $0 per month and just 5% of sales. Because item prices are so low and because the first 2 of those first 5 vendors were dominating sales we were only making 4-6% profit.
Then in July 2015 we dropped the $20 monthly fee and started charging a selling fee based on the individual item price. For example, for any item priced at $7.00 or less the selling fee is $.42. If they sell 2 of that item the selling fee is $.84. The selling fee rises by $.42 with each additional $7 increment.
THCM operates solely in the US. Our vendors do ship to Puerto Rico, which has the same postage rate as inside the continental US.
We, the owners, carry no inventory, and therefore we have no suppliers or supplier agreements, because we don't do any physical shipping.
Vendors are 'paid' once a week, via Paypal Goods & Services. Their 'payment' consists of their total sales for the previous week minus their selling fee.
Our average refund rate is zero. That's not to say we don't issue refunds, though. When an order or item is refunded the money is deducted from the responsible vendor's next Paypal transfer. We do, ocassionaly, issue goodwill refunds for small amounts – maybe $10.00 total per month – just to keep the customer happy.
We do not have a maling list and no intellectual property. Everything you see goes with the sale.
Existing customer data is logged on the site in the Woocommerce database and is included in the sale, as well as all order history.
The Happy Couponer Marketplace is built on Wordpress which is automatically updated when necessary by our hosting service, Flywheel. The shopping cart system is Woocommerce. The vendor system is managed with WCVendors and WCVendors Pro plugins. The theme is Buddypress Buddy Boss One Social with the Buddy Boss Marketplace plug-in. This theme and plugin were designed specifically to work with Woocommerce and WCVendors Pro and trust me, you won't find a better combination.
We do own other Internet businesses but none in this industry. Included in the sale are thcmmarketplace.com, thehappycouponer.com and thcmninja.com. We do have a FB page which we're happy to include in the sale if that's possible.
Yes, we're willing to sign a 3-year no-compete agreement.

1/2 OF ROCKET SPEED GROWING BUSINESS FOR SALE
San Mateo, CA
THIS IS A ROCKET SPEED GROWING BUSINESS!...
I started this business several years ago. When started buying and selling I had no money but rug knowledge and experiences. I started this business at a 20 SQ/feet space in a large antiques coop store. I could effort paying $275 only per month. I started buying from flea markets, estate sales, garage sales etc. I used to buy any thing I could make some money on; oil painting, collectables etc. I found out that the only thing I am making real money is Oriental rugs and I have been wasting my time and money on every thing else but oriental rugs... So, I decided to buy and sell rugs only... I used to buy rugs, wash them, repair small issues they had and re sell them... Now I have about 400 large, high end quality, all hand made oriental rugs. The price range of my inventory is $4000. That means $1,600,000.00.(one million and six hundred thousand dollars... I made this inventory in a small town.. Now, I rented a shop in San Mateo and my rent is $3000 a month...
Now that I am 57 years old, I am not being able to run this fast growing business alone any more. I am looking for a young, hard working go getter kind of person. I am not at all good at marketing what I have. I need some one who may be good at internet etc. The key in this business is the knowledge and I have it because I was born in a rug making culture... I know how to clean and repair them. You will have the chance to learn what I know.
If I can not find the right person, I may sell my business in total, because I am not being able to do what is needed to run this business...
