Buying your Business We believe the more knowledgeable and prepared you are the better. Buying a business will be a financially rewarding and personally satisfying experience or a nightmare depending upon how the transaction is handled. Selling your Business The sale of your business is not something you should take lightly. 30 years experience successfully selling clients businesses for top dollar, with painless transactions and no surprises, creating win-win relationships between informed buyers and sellers. Don’t get burned Both sellers and buyers with no frame-of-reference or prior experience are frequently misled, being told what they want to hear rather than the truth. Many business brokers make outrageous statements and use questionable tactics, be careful – be smart. I do not promote the common misconceptions about the process of selling or purchasing a small business. I believe the more you know about the process the better and more lucrative the outcome will be! To find the high quality brokers with solid reputations, it is essential that you check current references, interview past clients and customers, and ask the tough questions.

The new owner will have several ways to continue to grow the business which the owners would be happy to discuss with you. They recommend hiring a salesperson to call on event centers, planners, businesses, etc. which they have never had. They have relied on their location and reputation. The employees are very loyal and passionate about what they do and to the business. It is a very positive work environment for either an individual or a family business.

For more specific information, simply email Jeff Chapman at firstname.lastname@example.org. Just click on and fill out the NDA link: http://companybroker.com/buyer-profile-jeff.htm to get the sales package which has the financials and a video interview of the owner. _______________________________________________________________ Brief Overview The owners are trustworthy people that enthusiastically want to find and support a new owner for continued success. They are a married couple who both work full time at the business. There are 5 sources of revenue: 1) Location driven walk in traffic: The sales package will be able to provide more detail on this and has a link to a video walk through of the store which is automatically sent to you if you click on the link above and properly fill out the Non-Disclosure Agreement. The store is in a perfect location in the middle of a high traffic area(both foot and car) with ample parking and surrounded by other retailers. It is a central area of a very fast growing old Colorado Town. The town has very aggressive plans for expansion far into the future. 2) Online: The on-line sales volume continues to increase based on their website and the use of the “wire service” that sends orders to them every day. The company has sold on-line for 8 Years and has a user friendly website that is not search engine optimized. The owner has stated how exciting and profitable the growth in this area has increasingly become and there is still strong potential for additional sustainable future growth. 3) Business/Residential contracted recurring deliveries: These are the companies and customers that they deliver fresh flowers to on a regular and continuous basis which range from high end homes/businesses that wants fresh flowers every week to hospitals that they deliver to daily. This is one of the areas with a lot of potential to grow significantly. Hiring a commission based sales associate(s) to include business as their prospects would be a great way to increase the recurring non-holiday, high margin sales. 4) Holidays: This will naturally grow as the business continues to grow. The company doesn’t currently have the drivers to handle all of the Valentines and Mother’s Day orders. The new owner can hire additional temporary drivers to be able to fulfill all orders all year long. 5) Event & Venue Coordinators & Planners: These are the people that coordinate large events and rely on hand picking the best people and companies to make them look good because they have delivered on their promises for their customers. This company has very dedicated employees that do a great job of filling special orders for the people that coordinate big events and venues. Again, hiring a commission based sales associate(s) would be a great way to increase the recurring non-holiday, high margin sales by introducing them to more of these people. Each of these sources of revenue are profitable and have had significant improvement in growth which can be increased. Marketing, Advertising, and Growth Potential: The company has done very little pro-active marketing. The company does have a customer email data base which is an inexpensive means of advertising that continues to grow. Owner does not do mass emailing and runs no specials or discounts to bring in new customers. Customers shopping in the retail stores are generally happy to provide their email addresses. They are in the yellow pages and have brochures and a nice website. They need to add a salesperson(s) who should be commission based. They believe the salesperson will be successful because they have won many awards and accolades which will help the sales effort to be more effective. Employees: The employees love what they do. The company employs 8 employees and adds some temporary employees for the holidays. They have many long-term employees and little turnover. The length of tenure and the low turnover rate means that employees know their jobs well. Ownership is comfortable leaving the business for vacations or to spend time with family based on the established systems, procedures, experienced personnel and the industry specific computerized point of sales system which is multi-functional. Competition: There has always been competition but the company has maintained the largest market share of their market for most of the 44 years and is still growing. Competitors offer lower end options and few of them offer the quality and excellent customer service. The company has been paired against competition for years yet has continually maintained or grown their market share. Retail Store and Storage Facility Leases: The current retail store has been on a month to month lease for a long time now. The new owner will have to negotiate their own lease upon taking over the business but the owners don’t believe that there will be any issues. It is only $2,500 per month partially inclusive(they don’t pay water or sewer). The owners will help with a positive, supported, and successful transition of the business. The owners are very interested in seeing the business prosper. The hard work is done and has proved the test of time. The seller will offer full warranties, indemnifications, and further states there have not been any legal or other issues of any kind nor are the owners aware of any items pending. This is a rewarding, positive, profitable business and industry and could be an ideal fit for the right individual or family to acquire. It is a fun business that fits an active positive “lifestyle”. ______________________________________________________________ Thank you for your consideration.

This company is known for its high quality flowers and outstanding customer service. The current owner is absentee, which really positions this business for growth. A new owner could, potentially, increase sales by initiating marketing programs and expanding into additional states. The employees enjoy a good work/life balance, rarely working more than 35 hours a week. Even though the Sellers have not been available for daily sales calls, they have been focused on making modifications to policies and procedures to make the Gross Profits to Sales ratio greater. It is believed that the company would benefit greatly from a hands-on owner/operator who loves flowers and enjoys sales, marketing, and customer service. Contact Kim Hoyal.
