Fast Growing, Very Profitable Pizza Business
The owner started this business in April of 2013, and the business has been steadily and rapidly growing, averaging year over year monthly increases in sales of 65.3% (for the twelve months ending February 2016 - see Sales by Month info by clicking on the Attached Document "More Info About Business" below).
While the business does offer the option of dining in, with seating for 36, the seller reports that dine-in business amounts to only about 5% of total sales, with 75% of sales coming from deliveries to the local community, and about 20% coming from carryout orders.
This is an exceptionally well-managed business, and the seller fully expects that the growth rate will continue at its current pace for the rest of this year, or perhaps even increase the growth rate slightly, as he has added more marketing promotions to his business model for 2016.
The business has a full menu and offers pizza, pasta, sandwiches, and salads and features Pepsi products.
The owner is selling the business only because in the summer months, which are the busiest (see Sales by Month info by clicking on More Info About Business link below), he works too many hours to be able to enjoy the summer with his kids. He says he works 13-14 hours per day during the busiest couple of months of the year (the rest of the year he says he averages about 45 hours per week – much less in the off-season months of December, January, and February).
His wife also works in the business during the busiest part of the summer. She is paid for all the hours she works, at a rate comparable to the other employees.
The Discretionary Earnings (also known as Normalized Cash Flow) for the business for 2015 was $66,769. That's the amount that a buyer would have had available had they owned the business that year, and operated it no better nor worse than the current owner, to do 3 things: service the debt on the purchase of the business; pay themselves a salary; and provide a return on investment on their down payment used to purchase the business. (See the Return on Investment calculations in the Test for Reasonableness of Purchase Price Test by clicking on the More Info About Business link below.)
The seller expects the Discretionary Earnings for 2016 to be at least $80,000, which would mean the business would be worth about $184,000, so at the price point of $154,900, it is priced attractively.
