Business Description

An Iconic Store in An Iconic City

Plum Pudding Gourmet Business retail shop offers its customers high-quality brands that include cookware, dinnerware, numerous kitchen tools, and gourmet specialty food products that will satisfy the requirements in entertaining friends or for a professional chef. This unique retail kitchen store provides online and in-store sales. Plum Pudding has been operating continuously for 40-years from the same location.

This retail shop is located in Aiken, South Carolina, a small city of 30,000 and is a part of an MSA that has a 600,000 population. Aiken, founded in 1835, is an equestrian community with historic charm and tradition and is a “picture postcard place” with live oaks archway avenues, beautiful formal gardens, and thoroughbred training on most days, especially during the winter months. The equestrian community also has polo matches and fox chase events year-round. These events bring thousands of tourists to Aiken where they shop at this unique store.

Customers marvel at Plum Pudding's selection of gourmet tabletop, glassware, kitchen tools, cookware, cutlery, and specialty food products. The owner frequently is changing the mix of their inventory to appeal to different demographics. For example, the retail shop inventory high priced exclusive “Brands” for their long-term customers, as well as more affordable kitchen items for every customer. Also, Project Kitchen provides complimentary gift wrapping and has a popular bride’s registry.

The family, who has owned the business for nearly two decades has reluctantly decided to sell the business. The owner believes an ideal buyer would be a younger couple who has a high energy level and desires to own and grow their business by taking advantage of a business legacy and a great location.

Plum Pudding maintains approximately $115,000 (included in the sales price) of product inventory that will peak around $200,000 during the holiday season.
