Business Description

Established in 1994 with $500 in startup capital, this business is one of the top three commercial sign companies in Northwest Arkansas and a beloved member of the local business community. It has built a reputation for providing an exceptional customer experience, and has a corporate culture that rivals much larger employers. With meticulously documented systems and a fervent commitment to continuous improvement, this business has a level of professionalism that truly earns it the “small giant” label.

The company has experienced consistent financial performance since its inception, even during the economic downturn of 2008. Sales and income have both grown rapidly over the last 24 months with the regional economic boom that is occurring in Northwest Arkansas. Organic growth will likely continue as NWA is the fifth fastest-growing economy in the U.S. and is projected to maintain that status until 2021.

YTD through 8/31/2018 (cash basis):
Sales $1,448,320
Cash Flow $381,917

The company’s revenue comes primarily from quick signs, custom signs and installation. Quick signs are created in-house at the company’s production facilities, while manufacturing of custom signs (primarily illuminated signage) is outsourced to a nearby vendor. The company installs and services custom signs for its own customers, as well as signage for national accounts needing a local sign company. Examples of the latter include Chick-Fil-A, Bass Pro Shops/Cabela’s and Hilton. The company’s product mix is rounded out by sales of promotional products to existing customers. Over 70% of the company’s revenue comes from repeat customers.

This company offers buyers the opportunity to acquire a turnkey business that has found its “secret sauce,” or use the company’s reputation, longevity and success as a foundation for next-level growth.
