Custom Furniture and Cabinet Shop with Retail Store
Custom Furniture, Cabinets, Art Gallery, Gift Shop, and Website
Misty Mountain Furniture sits in the center of Sandpoint, Idaho, which has been gaining notoriety as the best small town in America by USA Today and 10 best towns to live in by Sunset Magazine amongst others. Sandpoint, nestled against magnificent Lake Pend Oreille and under Schweitzer Mountain Resort in the Selkirk Mountains, is truly a tourist and retirement destination. Despite these attributes, the area still attracts young families with affordable housing, good schools and a strong community of working class residents. Misty Mountain was born in 1991 after Chris Park and John Edwards worked together on a log cabin addition outside of Yellowstone National Park. Realizing no one was manufacturing log furniture in the Sandpoint area, they both saw a niche that could be filled and Misty Mountain was born. The company quickly grew and expanded into reclaimed barnwood furniture and cabinets, and custom hardwood furniture and cabinets. Soon Misty Mountain found itself with 8 employees, doing 60 Room hotel projects in Banff, Alberta and 25 unit condominium cabinet jobs in Menlo Park, California. Chris and John found themselves pushed into administrative positions with all this growth, and realized their relaxed life style business had grown into a 45+ hour work week. Then came the Great Recession and a downturn in business, where Chris and John saw the necessity and opportunity to downsize and get back into the shop, and return to a slower pace with more time off. Since this time they have enjoyed steady sales, lots of time off and a relaxed life style. Currently, business is a healthy mix of commercial (example: Mount Hood Meadows Resort, Bricks and Barley), single family cabinet jobs, miscellaneous furniture orders through our website and store, and consignment and retail sales through our store and website. The stage is set for a energized entrepreneur to step into a business that has a strong foundation already established. Misty Mountain has an incredible showroom (3000+ square ft.) with adjoining workshop (3000 square ft.). The sale includes these very valuable goodwill assets: name recognition and branding, twenty four year customer list with lots of return business, unique products, 3 distinct furniture lines, a cedar screen door line, extensive consignment artists, vendor lists, extensive photo library, designer binder, customer references and testimonials, great sales producing website, and twenty four year track record of 100% customer satisfaction. The showroom has been created and set-up to sell all the products we manufacture and represent from kitchen cabinets, window and door casings to doors and custom railings. There are viewing windows into the work shop, a customer bathroom, private office and outside deck display area, great location with high car count on the main artery, convenient parking, completely set up wood shop (grandfathered in, now very cost prohibitive), completely set up showroom, sales/retail manual, and detailed plan book. Chris and John are owners of the building and therefore can offer a long term facility lease at a very reasonable rate.

Appliance Repair Company
This company was established in 2005 and has flourished ever since. It is located in an area that is known for its quality of living. It services both Kootenai and Bonner counties in Idaho. It has virtually no competition in its area of service. It services all major kitchen and laundering appliances along with hot water heaters. The owner specializes in repairing all the latest technology upgrades in the latest models of appliances. It has built its reputation on honesty, integrity, and quality service. The company averages about 6-9 calls per day – 5 days a week (Monday-Friday). 30% of those calls are repeat customers, 30% are referrals, 20% come from their website, and 20% are referrals from Landlords and Property Management companies. The company has a database of over 5,000 customers. The company belongs to United Servicers Association which will provide one week of training with the regional manufactures and one week of training with the national manufactures. They also have a national library on all manufactures products to help with analyzing and repairing problems. The company is constantly turning away business. The owner is the only technician and has a full time person to answer his phones and do the scheduling. The new owner could easily increase revenues by adding more technicians and increasing the marketing of the company. The business includes a 2003 GMC Safari all wheel drive which is equipped to make house calls. The current owner is retiring from this business and has not actively promoted the business for many years. This is a gold mine for the right entrepreneur.
