A very special 44 Year Old Full Service Flower Store that is as Perfect as You Can Imagine in the Middle of a Fast Growing Town North of Denver CO 2014's revenues were $548K which were up 6% compared to 2013. The 2014 adjusted Net Income was $73,138. The owners are husband and wife whom will be retiring. They have owned the store for 15 years. The revenues are from online sales from their website, walk in traffic, a large customer base, monthly/weekly accounts, wedding/event planners, referrals, recurring contracted work which comes from business, hospitals, funeral homes, event facilities, and an online “wire service” that sends them orders which they can chose to fill or not based on each orders potential profitability. 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. This business will not change the day after a new buyer becomes involved. The company has a prime location and with high internet sales, established accounts and a great reputation the new owner will walk into an established business that can continue to grow. In the owners words, “a new owner can continue to run the operation exactly like it is and pursue additional expansion opportunities.” The Sales Price includes $100,000 of current value equipment that includes 3 vans(1 new), POS system with built in time clock, payroll, delivery tracking, quick books, and email. Location: North of Denver Colorado _______________________________________________________________ Sales Price: $250,000 down as part of a $315,000 sales price plus a negotiated value for the Merchandise and Inventory. This business will qualify for a bank and/or SBA loan based on the size of its assets and profitable history. For more specific information, simply email Jeff Chapman at email@example.com. 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.

They live in the house with one room dedicated to the business office. They specialize in gourmet annuals, organic and natural vegetables, custom signature hanging baskets and mixed planters, and their big holiday annual event. They also provide a nice selection of perennials, fruit and ornamental shade trees, shrubs, and necessary gardening supplies. The assets included in the sale of the business are estimated to be $95K which includes an irrigation system, skid steer tractor, gator ATV, covered trailer, riding mower, office equipment, displays, chipper, the pumpkin patch accessories, and various tools and smaller equipment. They will be keeping their vehicles (pickup truck and car). This is a lot of assets for a business that makes $92K and has a sales price of only $190K. The property with their house will be sold separately for $600K. This is a happy place to live and work. They have very loyal customers that return every year based on the quality of their plants and the high level of service. There are several sources of revenue: 1) Special Custom Orders – They specialize in designing custom signature hanging baskets and mixed planters for homes, businesses, and communities within 60 miles of them, including Aspen and Vail. They also sell along the Roaring Fork Valley from Glenwood Springs to Aspen which has seen tremendous growth and increased wealth. These custom orders have increased steadily every year. They do this inexpensively by buying young flowers in March and growing them in their greenhouses until the custom orders are ready for delivery in June. Frequently, customers tell them how pleased they are with the designs and that their plants are the best in the area. As of March 1st 2015, they already had $34,000 in signature custom orders contracted for this season which is above the number they had at the same time last year. 2) Holiday Event – They have nearly 3,000 visitors paying from $8(Adults) to $5(kids) as the admission fee. It has grown more popular every year, as customers utilize social media to spread the word about the fun they've had. There is nothing similar to this event in the area, and more and more families want this destination experience. They provide all kinds of activities and sold over 4,000 items on top of the admission last year. Parents as well as children comment how much fun they've had as they make memories together playing the games. It can be expanded by adding more decorations, food and beverages, by a concentrated effort to attract more school field trips, and expanding the venue by leasing more land nearby to add additional attractions and larger products. There is also an opportunity to create specialty items that can be sold during this event. 3) General Store and Supplies– They have a 400 square foot “general store” that sells all the standard garden tools, seeds, fertilizer, etc. It is an old barn that they customized and looks great. You must see the pictures in the data room above to appreciate this. Colorado clay like soil requires gardeners to amend soils every year, a source of recurring revenues in the spring, summer and fall. Their motto is helping every gardener on any budget be successful. Knowing how to help gardeners solve their particular challenges keeps customers returning throughout the summer and fall. 4) Vegetables and Herbs - The cultural trend toward natural and organic foods, the desire for farm to table produce, and the fact that families want to know what they are eating (e.g., no pesticides) has been a significant factor in sales revenue nearly doubling in this category over the past 5 years. They have responded by growing more of their vegetable seedlings which has increased profit margins. 5) Flowers, Plants and Trees – Bursting with color, "annual gourmet flowers" have customers delighting in the beauty of creation as they make their plans for their home or business shine. Customers choose from unique plants as well as the traditional expected plant varieties. Since they "harden off" their plants, customers experience successful transition from the nursery to home planting. The owners, for a consulting fee, will go to the homeowner's residence and help them design their yard with annuals, perennials, shrubs and trees. If the new owners want to add landscaping services (doing the actual planting), this would be a natural add-on revenue. There is a definite market for this service, and could be a huge source of revenue. The company is 7 years old and has a great reputation. The seller will agree to full Reps(indemnifications) and Warranties and further guarantee a solid legal and business standing. They also have a great record for safety (OSHA) and no legal battles. They have 9 seasonal employees who are paid hourly. They are very loyal and good at their jobs and will be very helpful to the new owner. During the spring, employee responsibilities include set up of nursery and general store, plant care, design, sales and customer service, inventory control, maintenance, office assistance and website/weekly emails. During their annual holiday event, employee responsibilities include set-up, sales, activities assistance, maintenance, inventory, office assistance, putting plants "to bed" for the winter, shutting down operations, and website/weekly emails. The owner will sign a non-compete. They will offer a full time transition to ensure a successful transfer. A buyer does not need any special skills because they can teach him/her what they will need to know to run and grow the business. A passion for plants and caring customer service goes a long ways in being successful. The owner will also be able to live on the property just as the current owners do now. Growth Potential: The company is already growing at 6% very steadily. The new buyer can increase growth by hiring a salesperson to increase the sales of signature custom planters to the high end markets like Aspen and Vail. They can also expand geographically by taking advantage of their reputation and quality of plants by establishing a satellite operation in a larger nearby community. There is room to establish a growing wholesale operation. Besides expanding plant production to be used in the retail operation, (e.g., vegetables, herbs, annuals and perennials for signature custom orders), the wholesale operation could serve the Roaring Fork Valley landscapers as well as Aspen and Vail. The new owner would have to begin working in late winter and install heaters in the greenhouses. However, the owners have already installed the major gas line which makes this upgrade possible. In addition, increased plant production would dove-tail easily with the opportunity to start their own landscaping company. They have been asked to do this many times and just don’t have the energy anymore. Since their annual holiday event has been so successful, they think there is a Christmas destination revenue potential which they say is badly needed in their area. They have the perfect property, barn, and general store and want to put a giant drive through light show together. They have seen one in Michigan but never in Colorado and they believe that it would be as popular as their current holiday event. This would also allow them to sell all kinds of Christmas items which could be big $’s. They just don’t want to work during the Christmas season. They take off from mid-November until mid-February every year. Potentially there is additional revenue to be made utilizing the internet. The 4.7 acres of land and structures are being offered separately but I don’t see how anyone would buy the business without buying the property also. The 2,000 square feet house includes 3 bedrooms, an office, and 3 baths. The business office is currently located in the house. The property also includes 6 greenhouses, a barn, a general store, fencing, and an irrigation system. It has a clear view of I-70 and has a beautiful red mountain behind them. The property has rights to both well water and from the ditch located at the back of their property. They have plenty of inexpensive water which is a big thing in their area and helps them have a competitive edge. The property is being offered at $600,000. The company is located in a beautiful part of Colorado that has excellent weather compared to the front range and mountains. They have over 300 days of sunshine every year. Plus, the area is growing. Plus, Colorado is the best State in the country to own a business. Please see the web link. Colorado is THE "#1" fastest growing and strongest economies in the United States, per Money.MSN.com and Business Insider. This article ranks all 50 states by eight economic measures including GDP growth, housing prices, job creation and exports. Summary: This turn-key business is perfect for a family that cares about a quality lifestyle. It is located in a very community centric area where there is virtually no crime or other negative distractions. It is in a beautiful location with water, red mountains, blue sky, wildlife, and outdoor activities all around. This business also allows some time off during the winter even if you decide to stay open for Christmas. There would be time to ski and enjoy the winter activities to the east of them in the mountains. The business can continue to grow and both the business and the property should become more valuable over time. _______________________________________________________________ Thank you for your interest in this business.
